New generation punching prevention system for high punching loads. A unique combination of vertical and horizontal studs that allows cost-effectively increasing capacity against punching shear failure of a reinforced concrete slab.
PSB PLUS® system is a combination of vertical PSB® studs with horizontal PSH studs. Compared to a solution with vertical PSB® studs only, the PSB PLUS® system allows achieving higher capacities against punching shear failure. Higher resistances provided by the system enable constructing flat slabs in a greater variety of cases – whether the need is for higher capacities or optimization of structures by making them slimmer and less obtrusive, which will also bring construction material savings.
Together with simple installation of horizontal elements, this system is a cost-efficient and practical solution for flat slabs subjected to extreme requirements.
PSB PLUS® is offered as a system. Peikko provides the design, dimensioning and placement drawing of the PSB PLUS® reinforcement assembly according to customer’s initial specification. All initial information and specifications can be submitted to Peikko via the design form document available on this page under Related Materials. To get started, simply fill in the design form document and contact your local sales office.
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 Design Tools -page, or from website of the country in question.
