CINTEC America has just announced that they will be supplying a new anchoring system for the overhead glass fiber reinforced concrete panels for the NYC MTA subway station retrofit project for station platforms at 168th station and 181st station. The NYC MTA subway station retrofit project is aimed at providing overhead support for the GRFC panels used for the underground suspended dome ceiling. The system works by pre-drilling an oversized hole in the structure and inserting an anchor body surrounded by a fabric sock. CINTEC designs use anchors that are non-corrosive metal, typically stainless steel in various grades.
