SMEET Precast Building Systems
Braced Frame Systems: Widely used for multi-storey buildings up to more than 20- storeys-high.
The horizontal stability is provided by precast concrete cores for staircases and or lift shafts acting as a unit shear wall.
The structural frame is commonly composed of rectangular columns and beams.
Bearing Wall Structures: The system is an assembly of bearing and non- load bearing walls with hollowcore slabs or other types of precast floorings.
Wall panels acting as bearing walls are designed also to take and transmit in-plane horizontal forces to the foundation.
Precast Facades: Dual function system in both being decorative and structural. It constitutes an economic solution since it reduces the need for columns, beams and shear walls.
Precast Floors and Roofs:Prestressed hollowcore slabs are the most widely used type of precast floorings, known for its structural efficiency, economy, reduced weight, smooth and flat underside.
Slab width is 1200mm and available in different depths and can span up to 20m between supports.
Wall Panel Systems: Precast cross-wall systems providing free spaces between load-bearing walls giving the architect freedom to design the interior according to the requirements of the client.
Precast facades have a dual function in being both architectural and structural. They support vertical loads from the floors and the structure above and or can be used in combination with structural frames as in cladding panels.
Integrated Frame & Skeletal System: The system is suitable for buildings requiring great degree of flexibility. This is very important in industrial buildings, shopping malls, parking structures, sporting facilities and also in large office buildings.
Hollow Core Slabs & Stairs: Prestressed hollow core slabs offer many advantages over cast in-situ floors, e.g. economy and speed of erection. They are mainly used in buildings with larger spans as in shopping centers, carparks, office buildings, hospitals, schools & industrial buildings, etc.
Precast stairs is very popular in Europe, a quality alternative to traditional labor intensive cast-in-situ stairs. Precast concrete staircases are very practical because of the quality of finishing and cost efficiency.
Non-standard Infrastructural Precast: Retaining walls are efficient structural components for storing granular materials in bulk. They are free-standing, acting independent from adjacent units therefore easy to be dismantled and relocated in other areas where needed. Normally culverts are rectangular in cross-sections produced in factory settings and installed on-site in segments. They are ideal in routing irrigation water or waste water discard, beneath city streets or under road and railroad embankments. As specified by consultants, socket and spigot joints are sealed or left unsealed.
Special Infrastructure Precast Units: Precast concrete is highly sophisticated product that can be customized to highest standards in accordance with client's stringent requirement. SMEET Precast with its vast highly automated Precast Factory is well structured to have capacity for big volume of Special infrastructure Precast Units.
Special Infrastructure Precast Units of interest are:
- Railway Sleepers
- Tunnel Elements
- Quay Walls
