Columns are precast products with high load-bearing capacity and great architectural freedom. Precast prestressed columns are highly durable compared to alternative building materials. For example, a precast column can be erected five times faster than an in-situ column.
Precast columns offer flexibility in design, shape, and application
The erection is also a silent process that can take place at any time, day or night.
Precast columns are produced indoors with high-strength concrete, which enables a reduction in reinforcement steel. With Elematic equipment, columns with consoles or without can be produced with different casting methods. The Frame Line is like a floor production line but with firmer beds. Thus, it can also be used to manufacture floor products.
Precast columns are used for structural frames, skeletons in buildings. Precast columns can be applied in various building frame systems, and they work well with other precast components such as beams, wall panels, hollow-core and double Tees. Precast prestressed columns provide a clean, finished look for the structural element in the building.
Advantages of the precast columns
- High load-bearing capacity
- Silent erection with less labour
