MEGASLAB® Revolutionary Concrete Slab Holds Up Under the Rigorous Testing of a CAT D10.
December 4, 2019
Wagner Equipment, one of the nation’s largest CAT dealers, contracted MEGASLAB® to engineer and install a 500′ x 60′ MEGASLAB® concrete pavement section located outside of their service bays. The slab design was based on the load of a 154,000 lb CAT D10 with steel tracks. No saw cut contraction joints were installed. Armored joints were used at the pour stops.
Thirteen days after placement, Wagner Equipment performed a series of rigorous tests using their steel-tracked D10. MEGASLAB® exceeded their expectations.
MEGASLAB® is a revolutionary and complete concrete system that utilizes sophisticated nanotechnology paired with a proprietary blend of durable and flexible admixtures. This results in an impermeable and incredibly dense jointless slab with exceptional tensile strength and durability for the heaviest loads and equipment.
According to Jason Adams, the CEO of the MEGASLAB ™ company, they were able to reduce the concrete thickness, eliminate rebar and control joints, and provide a far superior slab at a competitive price.
“We are so confident in the MEGASLAB® concrete system that we warranty it for heavy equipment companies,” Jason Adams, CEO of MEGASLAB® stated.
Heavy loads and abuse from steel tracks are issues with traditional jointed concrete. MEGASLAB® is not traditional concrete. When joints are needed – we armor them with MEGAJoint™. This makes the MEGASLAB® concrete the most durable and dense concrete system in existence today.
Wagner Equipment is headquartered in Aurora, CO. They’ve been selling and renting the largest selection of quality CAT machines used in heavy construction, building construction, mining, waste handling, paving, municipal and governmental applications, forestry and more both domestically and abroad since 1976. Wagner also provides tractors and harvesting equipment for the agricultural industries.
The MEGASLAB® Company was born from the collaboration between concrete experts Jason Adams of Sinclair Construction Group and internationally known industry expert Sylvester Schmidt.
Jason Adams has accumulated over 20 years of extensive construction practices and techniques. Sylvester Schmidt is considered an industry expert in concrete technology, with over 4 decades of experience working on projects totaling in the billions.
They bring their revolutionary new concrete product, MEGASLAB®, to the wide range of construction and trade industries who rely upon concrete, but need a superior product that requires less maintenance, has fewer initial building costs, and can support much greater loads with little or no rebar and control joints.
