Abstract:
Post-tensioning kits used in the European Community have to obtain European Technical Approval which is based on a set of defined testing procedures which have to be fulfilled. Once the posttensioning systems are placed on the market, they are subjected to an independent and continuous surveillance / factory production control. Post-tensioning kits shall be installed by trained Post-tensioning Specialist Companies, ensuring a professional and system conforming installation.
