Civil Engineers | Concrete Pavements

Mitigate your project risk, maximize constructability of your design and optimize project costs with PNA systems for maximum paving appearance and durability.

PNA’s proven systems help you deliver affordable, durable and highly serviceable concrete paving. Based on published engineering, PNA systems meet exacting tolerances to ensure long-term joint stability for exterior paving applications resulting in long-lasting curb appeal, low maintenance costs and serviceability.

PNA’s Strategic Reinforcement Design optimizes steel and materials in concrete flatwork to reduce the amount of steel in the project while improving flatwork performance. Simple, consistent installation methods and easy subgrade correction ensure long-term performance while minimizing mid-panel cracking and joint deterioration.

Recommended Project Types

  • Commercial/retail projects – parking lots, loading docks and odd-shaped panels
  • Intermodal facilities - roads
  • Industrial paving
  • Manufacturing facilities – exterior paving
  • Warehouse/distribution facilities

Design Benefits

  • Simple design and installation allows for a consistent, replicable design prototype across the county and various project types.
  • Smooth ride measured in load transfer efficiency.
  • Manages joints and the natural behavior of concrete to prevent maintenance and repair costs.

Where to Require PNA Systems In Your Next Project:

Formed construction and contraction joints in concrete flatwork.

Diamond Dowel® System and PD3 Basket® Assembly
  • Deliver joint stability per industry guides of less than .01 inch differential deflection.
  • Provide positive load transfer.
  • Permit dowel placement six inches from the joint intersection where curling stresses are highest.
  • Minimize joint edge spalling.
  • Ensure joint activation and free horizontal movement to reduce restraint and random cracking.
  • Reduce project costs with material and labor savings.
  • Maximize consistent and efficient constructability.

Edge protection for high-traffic areas, freezer buildings and floor designs where the construction joints are expected to open more than 1/8 inch.

Armor-Edge® Joint Assembly - armored joints to deliver spall-free construction joints.
  • Ensure complete joint edge protection.
  • Provide smooth surface transitions.
  • Allow joint activation without restraint, minimizing cracking.
  • Spall-free construction joints for the life of the pavement.

Gradual, uniform and controlled curing environments for durable slab surfaces.

HydraCure™ Moisture Cure Covers
  • Control environment with optimal hydration and drying rates.
  • Compatible with surface treatments.
  • Reduce cracking, crazing, scaling, dusting and pop-outs.
  • Result in residue and stain-free pavements.
  • Increase abrasion resistance.
PNA can streamline your next flatwork project with published engineering, submittals and replicable specifications for concrete flatwork projects.
