The Decking (designed by Cobute) consists of ribs, zig-zag steel reinforcement, precast panels and polystyrene blocks which vary in size to suit each design. The design of the slab can be carried out by any competent Professional or Incorporated (Structural) Engineer. However, TeSik Decking can facilitate the full range of services that include (but not limited to), engineering designs, construction drawings and practical and final completion certificates to meet local municipal requirements upon request.>
The beams are made of shuttering that consists of two L-shaped beams, reasonably light (20-37kg per linear meter each) with additional steel, that is factory-fixed in the specified position. They are easy-to-handle and allow carpentry costs to be eliminated. Installation simply involves lifting into place and tying the two halves together using the protruding wire mesh. A six-meter long beam can be erected and ready for casting in ±90 minutes by six unskilled labourers with a reduced number of props when compared to conventional slabs.
By using an adjustable template on the beam mould (designed by Shuttercrete), the pattern of risers and treads along the stair stringer was created to have an easy pre-cast staircase. The basic components are the same as those of the decking system by Cobute (precast panels and ribs). Every staircase is individually specified and designed to accommodate the project requirements.”
The moulds, patented by Shuttercrete, provide for the casting of 230mm and 280mm square columns, which are 3 meters in length. The columns can be delivered to site and the installation simply involves lifting the columns into place over the reinforced column base, plumbing it and sliding in the required steel cage, as specified by the Engineer. Columns are ready to cast in approximately 30 minutes.
