post-tensioned external in structural reinforcement

The post-tensioned concrete is usually used to prevent the reinforced concrete elements fisuren, thereby may allow higher load capacity and above all, a lower level of deformation or both instant and long term load deflection.

The external post-tensioning is generally used as structural reinforcement, allowing to put cables  high-strength steel, called tendons, that pass along the entire element. Transmitting to the force applied by the cats and determined by designing by our engineers.

Their applications can increase the loads and correction elements of tendons or wires down product either in slabs cut or bridges vehicle crashes.
