Fixing Systems for Precast Concrete

Cast In Tubular Sockets

Cast in tubular sockets provide threaded fixings in finished concrete units with a typical strength of 30N/sq mm. They are an economical socket available in mild steel, bright zinc plated and stainless steel 304 (A2). They are a single point fixing without tolerance and are not recommended where accuracy of fixing position is required. Available in a range of thread sizes, lengths, stainless steel or zinc plated.

Cast In solid Rod Sockets

Cast in solid Rod Sockets are heavy duty fixings that are most commonly used in architectural precast units. They are normally finished with a factory fitted cross-pin but can also be supplied with a hole for site fixed reinforcement. Solid rod sockets are the preferred option for high tensile and shear loads such as fixing cladding panels. These sockets are available in a range of thread sizes (M10 - M30) and in either stainless steel or bright zinc plated mild steel.

Connecting Loops

The Halfen Connecting loop system consists of a steel case acting as a void former or casing and holding a steel loop. The system is designed to form connections between precast panels with recesses and is used in conjunction with stitching reinforcing rods and in-situ concrete. Loops are available in lengths 80mm to 140mm. This range of Halfen products compliments the Halfen range of Concrete Connection Systems - please refer to the Halfen Concrete Façade and Framing Systems and Concrete Reinforcement Systems. Please call us for further details on the complete range of Fixing Systems.
