AUTOMATED STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEMs
ASRS is the future in warehousing.
We are the foundation of that future.
WILL NOT WORK
Automatic Storage & Retrieval System (ASRS) buildings with their narrower aisles and taller racks require a special type of concrete floor design to handle the weight and height as well as the automated forklift equipment.
Typically, to try and achieve the essential durability for ASRS, contractors have had limited options, such as thicker slabs and double rebar reinforcement, low water-to-cement ratio to reduce shrinkage, etc. Essentially these do help to create a concrete floor that can take the weight, but there’s the added time to creating that slab, and there’s too short of a life to consider as well.
The solution to these issues and risks?
Reinvent the concrete itself.
you need it to be
Your advanced racking systems have robots running in X, Y, and Z directions. To keep these systems fully operational, you need to be installed on a slab that will be built Super Flat and stay both flat and level over its life, while also not having joints opening and closing which can throw their many rack legs out of tolerance.
MEGASLAB delivers a revolutionary concrete product as an engineered solution to your ASRS facility's design. With the incredibly low shrinkage and curl of our system, as well as the elimination of construction joints, MEGASLAB™ is positioned to take on the unique requirements of ASRS facilities like no other system.
We know that the stability of your floor leads to stability and 100% uptime of your business.
THE FUTURE OF ASRS CONCRETE
It’s an evolutionary change to the way concrete is made.
We did not merely 'enhance' it for ASRS, we completely re-invented it.

RETRIEVAL SYSTEM FACILITIES
A CONCRETE SOLUTION
MEGASLAB™ for ASRS is a patent-pending jointless concrete system that utilizes sophisticated nanotechnology paired with a proprietary blend of durable and flexible admixtures and sprays.
The result is an impermeable jointless slab with exceptional tensile strength and durability for the heaviest loads and equipment.
Without the expense and challenges of control joints and rebar, major concrete projects can now pour the largest slabs available in the industry, greatly improving productivity.

Joint Problem Solved.MEGASLAB® REDUCES THE NEED FOR JOINTS IN ASRS FACILITIES BY UP TO 95%
The Achilles Heel of concrete has always been the control joints, which leads to several costly challenges.
Slabs with control joints have always required more maintenance and upkeep, and often lead to ongoing equipment repair and reduced productivity. Especially when those steel tracks hit those joints on exterior slabs, spalling and breaking them open over time, giving you wider and wider joints allowing rain to penetrate and weaken that sub-grade below.
Our revolutionary MEGASLAB® concrete solution has solved this. We stretch the joints further out, making them armored MEGAJoints™. We install our own unique MEGASheet™ below the concrete which helps to protect the sub-grade from moisture.
ASRS FACILITY design
WE ARMOR THEM
MEGAJoint™ is revolutionary in armored joint technology.
It out performs traditional straight armored joints by its ability to break up the direct impact of a forklift wheel, robot wheels or even the steel tracks of a CAT D10 Dozer. Not only does it protect the edges of MEGASLAB® but it provides incredible load transfer that surpasses that of any other type of load transfer device.
