Description of elements
Vertical structural elements carry horizontal elements of roofs and floor structures. Their square or rectangular cross-section is dimensioned according to the structural analysis. If necessary, consoles for beams and cranes may be added in accordance with the requested load capacity (from 5 to 100t). MG Precast has the capacity to produce corbels on all four sides of acolumn, and to produce columns of variable cross-section and a height of up to 32 m.
Columns can be monolithic or of multiple elements (for multi-storey buildings). They are mounted in foundation collars or anchor bolts. As an option, it is possible to build PVC pipes in the column axis during production to drain rainwater. At the customer’s request, forked columns can be supplied.
