Tri Pointe Homes Slabs

El Dorado Hills, CA
Two single family model homes in El Dorado Hills near Bass Lake California used a combination of micro and macro synthetic fibers in their interior slab along with the garage floor. The 4000 psi with 5 in slump, slab on grades called for 1 lb/ yd3 of FiberForce 150 and 3 lb/ yd3 of FiberForce 750 in lieu of rebar. The high cost of steel and the shortage of labor has finally become a factor in the consideration of using synthetic fiber instead of steel rebar.
