RBC Beam Shoe is an ideal product for various types of precast beams. RBC Shoes are used together with HPM® and PPM® Anchor Bolts. Wide product range is suitable for most of loading conditions from light to heavy.
RBC Beam Shoes are connection items for moment stiff connections between precast concrete beams and columns. The connection system consists of the beam shoes fitted in the beam and anchor bolts fitted in the column or wall.
Fixing is achieved with nuts and washers screwed to the anchor bolts. The joint between beam end and vertical structure should be grouted before loading the beam. After grout is hardened, the joint works as reinforced concrete structure. Shoes are color coded with same color as matching anchor bolts.
* The longer lenghts are to be used in poor bond condition
PPM® High-Strength Anchor Bolts are used as counterparts for PEC® Column Shoes and SUMO® Wall Shoes to create fast and safe connections between precast elements. Anchor Bolts transfer compression and tension forces through a combination of headed studs and the bond of the ribs of ribbed bars.
