beams and columns can vary in both size and shape to meet the structural and architectural needs and requirements of the project. using precast beams and columns allow for reduced column counts and provides for wider open spaces. in addition, precast beams and columns can be used below grade for parking, maximizing space efficiency.
advantages of precast concrete beams. concrete beams must withstand the forces that external loads place on them, and no material resists this stress like precast concrete. the consistent, highly controlled manufacturing process ensures you get beams with the exact specifications free of the flaws that could cause failure.
the precise forms pouring board assists in the flow direction of the concrete into the forms. this allows for the concrete that is being delivered by the concrete mixer to be directed into the forms and thereby reducing potential concrete spillage. the flanged model allows for even more flow control.
