Title: Cast-in channels used for precast concrete connections
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:The pre-fabrication of concrete elements offer advantages compared to other construction methods especially in view of delivery times and budgets. The mounting parts used for fixing play a decisive role in that connection. Among the most effective fixing solutions are cast-in channels/ anchor channels which can be used throughout the precast industry. The criteria used to design precast connections include - but are not limited to - load capability, adjustability, durability, fire resistance and ease of use. Anchor channels normally satisfy all these requirements and are particularly suitable to support high loads in thin concrete, even when located close to concrete edges. This paper covers an introduction to the history and the concept of cast-in channel connections as well as a summary of technical specifications. Also included are features and benefits obtained by using anchor channels for several precast concrete connections.
