BECO® Beam Shoes offer efficient and moment-resisting bolted connections between precast concrete columns and precast concrete beams. These beam shoes are used in conjunction with COPRA® Anchoring Couplers. The wide range of products is suitable for a variety of loading conditions, ranging from light to heavy.
BECO® Beam Shoes are embedded into precast concrete beams, while COPRA® Anchoring Couplers are embedded into columns. On the construction site, the beams are positioned on corbels, adjusted to the correct locations, and securely fastened to the anchoring couplers using threaded bars. The joint between the beam and column is then filled with grout before loading the connection. Once the grout has hardened, the joint functions as a reinforced concrete structure.
Comprehensive product information like resistances, required supplementary reinforcement, concrete grades, limitations of use etc. can be found within the Technical Manual. Product details may be country-specific. For design, always use product information that is localized for design's destination country. Country specific Technical Manuals can be found under Documents page, or from website of the country in question.
COPRA® Anchoring Couplers are used with HPKM® Column Shoes, BOLDA® Column Shoes or BECO® Beam Shoes to create fast connections. Anchoring Couplers transfer compression and tension forces through a combination of headed studs and the bond of the ribs of ribbed bars. COPRA® can be adapted to all types of concrete structures and formworks.
