New generation punching prevention system for high punching loads. It combines vertical PSB® studs with horizontal PSH studs, creating a unique cost-efficient configuration that significantly enhances the capacity against punching shear failure in reinforced concrete slabs.
Compared to a solution with vertical PSB® studs alone, the PSB PLUS® system offers even higher capacities against punching shear failure. The increased resistances provided by the system allow for the construction of flat slabs in a wider range of scenarios. Whether there is a need for higher load capacities or a desire to optimize structures by making them slimmer and less intrusive, the PSB PLUS® system offers the versatility to achieve these objectives. Moreover, the optimized design can result in material savings.
With its straightforward installation process for horizontal elements, the PSB PLUS® system offers a cost-effective and practical solution for flat slabs that face 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 Documents page, or from website of the country in question.
