Established in 1964, Indiana University – Purdue
University Fort Wayne (IPFW) is Indiana’s
5th largest college campus. In 2009, the campus’
ever-increasing student population grew
nearly 11% over the previous year, setting a
new enrollment record and creating demand
for additional on-campus parking.
Coreslab used Dayton Superior’s Sleeve-Lock
grout sleeve in the precast panels that were
stacked in the structure’s stairways. The design
of the snug fit grout port tubes allowed
for a quicker and more secure installation in
production, eliminating the need for duct tape
to hold the tubes in place. With other grout
sleeve products, the center stops are often
broken off requiring replacement of the grout
sleeve. This was not an issue with Sleeve-Lock,
due to the product’s solid design.
“Overall, the Dayton Superior Sleeve-Lock
grout sleeve was of great quality and saved
production time,” said Tim Meckes, Plant
Manager with Coreslab Structures.
