Carpet (Roll) Reinforcement
Our Engineers and Detailers are some of the most experienced designers of roll reinforcement systems in the UK, with over 10 years experience in design and detailing of carpet reinforcement.
Starting with the Architects or Consulting Engineers general arrangement drawings, our Engineers produce Finite Element Analysis designs to determine the minimum steel required. Alternatively existing RC drawings can be taken and converted directly into carpet drawings.
Our carpet reinforcement drawings are completed meticulously in accordance with the FE calculations to ensure the minimum steel possible is provided. Significant savings can be achieved.
On previous contracts we have integrated into the design team, working as a sub-consultant for the main Consulting Engineers. OR completed designs/detailed drawings directly for the contractor to win contracts with more economic designs. We have also been appointed directly by the suppliers where they have undertaken design & supply contracts.
Our finite element designs yield extremely accurate predictions of long term slab deflections which can prove very useful to wall cladding suppliers as the can fine tune their specifications in accordance with the calculated defection values.
Alternatively, we can draw carpet reinforcement plans directly from the main consultants design outputs or convert their existing RC slab drawings.
