The continuous pursuit of cost-efficiency is a powerful driver for technological development. In this perspective, it is natural that the construction business during the last few years has set eyes upon composites. Low weight combined with strength and durability means reduced transport cost and facilitated on-site handling – i.e. without compromising occupational or residential safety.
Due to the wide range of options when it comes to material structure and design alternatives, composites interact very well with other materials. Recent research also indicates a great potential for composites in load-bearing elements – e.g. structural walls, beams & girders and joist systems. If you are in the construction business, we have some interesting news for you.
