Trimmer beam for hollow-core slabs

Peikko Group is one of the European leaders in providing structural connections for precast concrete elements. It has over 40 years of tradition in manufacturing and innovative R&D. Among others, Peikko Group focuses on the development of supporting systems for precast hollow-core slabs, including steel beams for slim-floor systems [1] and smaller hangers used to support slabs around floor openings. Some of these systems, which were originally developed for the Scandinavian market, are now being offered to customers across Europe.
