Over 5,000 km of Safely Supported Underground
Performance You Can Trust
BarChip macro synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement has been used to successfully reinforce over 5,000 km’s of underground structures worldwide. Our high performance reinforcement was the first synthetic fiber used to reinforce sprayed concrete linings in civil tunnels; the first used in cast in situ linings; and the first used as the sole reinforcement in precast segmental tunnel linings.
With over 120 road, rail and utility tunnels you can guarantee that when you choose Barchip, you choose the worlds most experienced team with the worlds best synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement.
40% Reduction in Precast Segmental Linings Cost
Material, labour and production benefits have delivered a 40% decrease in overall segment costs when using our synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement.
Our synthetic fibers are used as a fiber only solution or as a composite with steel reinforcement. Today, a number of guidelines exist to assist designers with segment design.
