Confirma™ carries out a range of post tensioning services including bars and strands / tendons. We have an array of equipment ranging from manual hand pump jacks to synchronised, multi-point tensioning systems.
Post-tensioning is a technique used to pre-stress reinforced concrete. The tensioning provides the member with an immediate and active load-carrying capability.
Placement of the tension components can be achieved either internally within the member or externally to the member.
Post-tensioning enhances a member’s ability to relieve overstressed conditions in tension, shear, bending, and torsion.
The post-tensioning technique can also be used to eliminate unwanted displacements in members and to turn discontinuous members into continuous members.
