Efficient punching and shear reinforcement system

Peikko comes out with a new punching and shear reinforcement system called “PSB-F”, which is especially designed for the requirements of precast concrete factories and has been granted the European technical approval (ETA).

The system was developed in cooperation with future users and offers, in particular, decisive benefits to factories with a high level of automation. As, among others, the complete “PSB-F” system comprises just three components. For the precast concrete factories with a minimum stock holding this means a maximum of flexibility and efficiency. They can furthermore save...
