Upon the view of this work, industrial floor is a vital structure due to its relation to quality of production, labor comfort, and human health. Flooring costs may reach 20% of single-story building construction expenditure, and the consumption of concrete for floors may come to 40% - 50% of the total size of concrete. Thereby, the efficient design of floor will reduce materials consumption and labor, and will increase the endurance of the floor. Fiber reinforcement reduces the thickness of the subfloor about 20% - 30%, hence enabling to reduce the consumption of cement and fillers. The use of fiber meshes will enable to save 30% - 40% of steel. Despite the flexible use of fiber in concrete reinforcement saves effort and money, still fiber reinforced concrete is lacking additional regulations in Jordan.
