The company, headed in Finland and with a growing presence in Southern Africa, specialises in slim floor structures and connection technology for precast and cast-in-situ applications. Acknowledging the increasingly competitive business environment, Peikko Southern Africa MD, Daniel Petrov says the next webinar will introduce PSB® Punching Reinforcement is an ETA approved system providing the highest resistance on the market. PSB® Punching and Shear Rails offer simple and reliable solutions against punching shear failure and shear failure of slabs, foundations, walls and beams by increasing their resistance.

The webinar series is aimed at developers, engineers, PQS, architects and contractors and will introduce them to methods and tools to enable faster and more efficient project delivery. The next webinar is scheduled for 23 September at 10h00 and will be hosted by Peikko product experts Stefan Gavura and Daniel Petrov. It will discuss the company’s slim floor solution as well as Peikko punching shear prevention systems – PSB and PSB Plus for cast in-situ concrete floors on site applications. 

Attendees with learn about the benefits and features of using the slim floor solution, including increased cubic efficiency, optimised structure, decreased environmental footprint and enhanced sustainability. This will give context to the use of company’s punching shear prevention systems, which are used in conjunction with slim floors for improved structural integrity of multi-story structures.

PSB punching reinforcement is applicable to various kinds of structural systems and installation situations. Being fully integrated in the concrete elements, it is an ideal reinforcement system for monolithic slim structures or flat concrete structures in general, which can be used as punching reinforcement or shear reinforcement.

Developers, consultants and contractors are encouraged to register for the event to learn how new construction methods will add value for clients, saving time and money.
