The new GRIP Recess Plate is designed to be used in precast wall connections to create a rough surface for improved shear transfer in the joint.
The GRIP Recess Plate is primarily designed to be used in precast wall connections together with SUMO® Wall Shoes, creating a rough surface for improved shear transfer in the joint. However, the GRIP Recess Plate can be used for any application with a concrete surface where a roughened surface is required.
The GRIP Recess Plate is a thin, profiled steel sheet used to create a rough concrete surface. With the GRIP Recess Plate, the surface of the concrete is considered to be rough in accordance with EN 1992-1-1 (section 6.2.5). Once the formwork is removed, an embossed surface will remain on the precast concrete surface.
The GRIP Recess Plate supplements existing wall-connection products from Peikko. Visit the product page to know more.
