Why Fort Miller and Super-Slab®?
Because experience matters to you.
Fort Miller is the premier jointed precast pavement manufacturer in the United States – but it didn’t happen overnight. Fort Miller’s Super-Slab® pavement system has led the industry in innovating and developing sustainable precast pavement technologies since 2001. Super-Slab® has been used in 15 States and 2 Canadian Provinces on over 100 projects that have included thousands of precast panels totaling over 2,000,000 square feet (36+ lane miles). In fact, Fort Miller has provided over 80% of the precast pavement installed throughout North America.
Projects in the Northeastern United States are manufactured at Fort Miller’s unrivaled, DOT-certified facilities that include more than 250,000 square feet of fully enclosed, climate-controlled production space. Fort Miller has achieved a perfect score on our National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) certification for 3 years running. When the project is outside of the Northeast, Fort Miller partners with local Precasters that are proven, reliable, and certified by the DOT and/or Industry Associations like NPCA or PCI.
Because your time and money matter to you.
We’ve been around long enough to know that your budget is tight and your schedule is tighter. Our quality, fully tested, cost-effective solutions mean your project is on time and on budget—every time. Super-Slab® provides the only system assessed by a full spectrum of testing that includes Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS) and FWD Load Transfer Efficiency testing. Just ask our clients.
Because innovation matters to you.
Fort Miller’s commitment to innovation and quality has set industry standards, and our products have been recognized by the Federal Highway Administration. We hold more than a dozen US patents for products spanning from coast to coast and into Canada on highways, non-planar ramps, toll plazas, local roadways, bridge approaches, airports and terminal pavement replacement projects. We never stop innovating. That means you don’t have to either.
Because safety matters to you.
Safety is our first priority. How does our commitment to safety impact you? It means you can be assured of our attention to detail. It means our facility has less downtime so your products are delivered on time. But it also means that we develop products that increase your safety, reducing manpower, equipment and work days needed alongside busy roads. When it comes down to it, our focus on safety is all about you.
What would you say about an “invisible,” precast concrete pavement replacement system? Super!
What would you think if you could rehabilitate a high volume traffic area overnight while leaving behind high-performance precast pavement slabs in a few hours? Super!
At last there is a way to make durable repairs to concrete pavement in those highway “trouble spots” that are just too busy to take out of service. When you have only 8 hours or less, you need to consider the Super-Slab® System.
The Super-Slab® System is a slab-on-grade approach to using fully cured precast concrete slabs for pavement replacement. The slabs are placed directly upon a precisely graded sub-base surface and made continuous with a unique grouted dowel load transfer system. After the slabs have been placed, bedding grout is pumped under the slabs to ensure the slabs are uniformly and fully supported.
Super-Slab® is used for continuous and intermittent pavement replacement. Slabs are precisely cast to fit curved and super-elevated alignment specific to each location. This non-planar functionality allows replacement of entire mainline, ramps, intersections and even crosswalks in a series of overnight work windows.
