Industrial Warehouses are generally designed using a beam and column arrangement, in typical portal frame structures. The beams in these structures are often required to be long span, to create large open span areas for storage or manufacturing. To cater for these long spans, Concast us it’s C4 beam. This is a prestressed roof beam with a 4’ pitch, which are available at spans of up to 36 m. Mezzanine levels or other intermediate levels can be accommodated easily through incorporation of other products such as wall panels, stairs and landings, as well as ordinary reinforced beams and columns.
Large scale project such as Nutgrove Retail Park have been completed using our beam and column structure, incorporating the C4 beam for long spans.
The following precast units are often used in the design of Industrial Warehouses:
