|FCR: Fibre Concrete Roofing (SKAT, 1987, 185 p.)|
|4. Manufacturing technology|
- The production of FCR is a sound technique and much practical experience is available.
- Failures are identified and are usually due to production errors.
-Tilemaking can tee started in most places with fair chance of success, if professional training is provided and if the appropriate method is chosen.
- Also the production of sheets is possible but much attention has to be given to the roof structure.
- A lot of experimentation has been done and documented and future experiments should take into account the history and state-of-the-art and not simply be in the spirit of Appropriate Technology Enthusiasm.
