Prestressed and Precast Concrete

Prestressed Concrete Components

Prestressed concrete is achieved by casting concrete into pre-assembled forms in combination with rebar and steel cable (strand) reinforcement. These cables are tensioned (stretched) to approximately three-quarters of their ultimate strength. Once the concrete cures to its required strength, the tensioning is released. The steel cables reacting to the release, transfers the tensile stresses into the concrete, rendering an even stronger structural component.

Precast Concrete Components

Manufactured at our factory using pre-assembled forms and rebar/wire mesh reinforcement. After casting and curing, these components can be shipped direct to job site and are ready for installation.

Prestressed/Precast Concrete benefits:

  1. Short, fast construction times – all weather conditions
  2. Cost effective – standard precast components can be mass-produced at low cost. Architectural finishes can render attractive, cost effective finishes that simulate traditional brick or similar materials.
  3. Controlled production environment, just-in-time manufacturing
  4. No on-site congestion, just-in-time delivery
  5. Strength/density
  6. Flexibility/versatility
  7. Long lasting/durable
  8. Fire and corrosion resistant
