Precast concrete makes perfect sense for any warehouse facility, as it offers energy-efficiency, low-cost maintenance, fire resistance and lower operating costs. Moreover, because it provides inherent sustainability benefits, you can’t beat precast, pre-stressed concrete for your warehousing needs, Especially if you have high loads like crane loads and supported building loads.
Shorter construction period: our precast foundations are designed to shorten the construction phase and bring the construction into operation at an earlier date.
the strength of our concrete foundations raises the capacity load of the construction to enable the installment of the rest of construction elements .
our precast elements are designed to resist accidental impact loads. The density and durability of our products gives long life maintenance free experience to our elements.
Protection & Isolation:
Insulation of foundations (all foundation elements) contacting directly with underground soil is the most important
reason that keeps its strength and durability.
So Cretematic Is keen to use a high quality insulating materials to isolate all underground elements to avoid any external factors can negatively affect the strength and durability of the element such as ( underground water - salts and sulfate in the soil
Best consultants insist on Isolating elements contacting directly with underground soil to avoid any negative impact from
the soil which affects the strength of the concrete element generally and not fulfill the conditions required of it
Therefore, we are keen at Cretematic to isolate the element professionally so that it is 100% Guaranteed
So Cretematic is keen to use a high quality insulating materials (bitumen - etc .....) in the process of isolating foundations
B.Precast columns &beam System.
Cretematic Concrete manufactures Precast Columns and Beams as part of a total precast frame solution or as a part of hybrid in situ concrete schemes. The offsite manufacture reduces site programmed times. Various profiles of beams and columns can be manufactured to suit the project requirements.
Columns are available in a range of shapes, sizes and finishes, can be circular or square and are designed to incorporate any additional features or fittings. Single storey columns are generally 2.5m - 4m high. Beams bear directly on top of these units with a dowelled connection between them. Multi storey columns cast with corbels or alternative connections at locations to suit the beams at intermediate levels. Projecting rebar can be provided for tying in to in situ floors. Options for foundation connections include cast in base plates, dowel tubes or projecting bars.
Cretematic Concrete can provide a cost effective solution offering a composite beam and floor solution which will reduce overall depth and weight with connections developed to your requirements.
Edge/Spandrel Beams – span around perimeter to provide a bearing edge on one side for flooring slabs and structure above.
Spine Beams - Provide a bearing edge on two sides for flooring slabs.
Lintel Beams - Span over door or window opens, to provide bearing for structure above.
Cantilever Beams - These beams cast with an integral cantilever area, including required Observation and levels.
Where single storey columns are being used, continuous beams are cast to reduce the bending moment of the beam and, therefore, its depth. Continuous beams can be also extended beyond the column support and provide bearing for smaller drop in beams between them.
As with most Modern Methods of Construction, the pre-stressed concrete wall panel system is designed to provide rapid construction for walls in all types of warehouses and distribution centers.
