Precast Double Tees have traditionally been used in parking structures. Over the past decade, double tees have been integrated into the building envelope for use in floor and roof systems. From 30′ to 40′ short spans to clear spans over 100′ for gymnasiums, cafeterias, swimming pools, etc. There are numerous benefits including: inherent fire resistance, speed of construction and sustainable design – contribution to LEED®, etc.
Double Tees with C-Grid
For years, architects, engineers and parking consultants have looked to precast double tee parking decks as a superior alternative to cast-in-place decks. Precast double tees offer unmatched consistency, erection speed and long-term durability in addition to aesthetic flexibility, fire resistance, low maintenance and high overall value.
Now there is an alternative. CarbonCast® double tees with carbon fiber C-GRID® replaces conventional steel mesh reinforcing in the flange. Because carbon fiber does not corrode, you don’t have to worry about the potential for concrete degradation, cracking or spalling. At the same time, less concrete cover is required in the flanges — reducing weight up to 8%, which reduces embodied energy. In addition, you can eliminate the need to add corrosion inhibiting admixtures to the concrete or applying sealers to the deck surface.
Precast wall panels come in various shapes and sizes to meet your design needs. Typical widths include 10′-0″, 12′-0″, 13′-4″ and 14′-0″ wide. Other custom widths are a available. Typical wall panel heights range from 10′-0″ up to 50′-0″ (to accommodate three level structures). Products can be insulated to provide superior thermal efficiency. Exterior finishes include: cast-in brick, sandblasting, formliners, reveals, custom mix designs, etc.
Spandrel panels come in various shapes and sizes to meet your design needs. Spandrels are typically used in parking garages and total precast office buildings. Typical spandrel lengths are 30′-0″, 36′-0″ and 40′-0″. Other lengths are available. Typical heights are 72″ and 76″. Exterior finishes include: cast-in brick, sandblasting, formliners, reveals, custom mix designs, etc.
Precast columns are available in various shapes and sizes. Square and rectangular columns are typically used with beams and spandrels in parking garages, total precast buildings, office buildings, schools and mixed-use structures. Exterior finishes are available as required to compliment other precast components, including: cast-in brick, sandblasting, formliners, reveals, custom mix designs, etc.
Precast beams are available in various shapes and sizes. Beams are typically used in parking garages and total precast structures to carry and transfer precast floor and roof loads to columns. Inverted Tee Beams (IT) “L” Shaped Beams (LB) Rectangular Beams (RB).
Precast flat slabs are available in various widths, lengths and thicknesses to meet your design requirements. Typical uses include: corridor floor and roof systems for schools and office buildings. Please contact our sales team regarding your specific project requirements.
Precast stairs have been incorporated on precast projects for years. Now our engineered solutions are available for your CIP or steel frame structure. Installed with a small crane or your project tower crane, the precast system eliminates the need for temporary stairs and ladders during construction. Need a stair and elevator tower too? Call us and we’ll assist you with a solution.
The thin floor plate design offers all the benefits of commercially available concrete plank systems and much more. The wet cast floor and roof components are typically 8” to 16” deep and eight to twelve foot wide. The bottom/ceiling has a smooth steel form finish, ready for a variety of field applied finishes.
When the components are integrated with precast columns, beams and load bearing walls the framing system can be competitive on projects of all sizes, from mixed-use structures and condominium/apartment buildings to multi-story office buildings and dormitories.
