PSB® Punching Reinforcement — System Against Punching Shear Failure of Slabs

PSB® Punching Reinforcement is an ETA-approved system providing the highest resistance on the market. PSB® Punching and Shear Rails offer simple and reliable solutions against punching shear failure and shear failure of slabs, foundations, walls and beams by increasing their resistance.

PSB® Punching Reinforcement is applicable to various kinds of structural systems and installation situations. PSB® rails consist of double-headed studs, welded to a non-structural flat bar. The system is available as 2- or 3- stud elements, which can be used to construct the required reinforcement, or as complete elements with at least 10 studs. Elements are manufactured individually according to the static requirements. Being fully integrated in the concrete elements, it is an ideal reinforcement system for monolithic slim structures or flat concrete structures in general, which can be used as punching reinforcement (PSB®) or shear reinforcement (PSB®-S). 

Model options

PSB®

PSB® consists of double-headed studs, assembled by a flat bar as spacing bar. Applicable to top and bottom installation. Available as 2- or 3-stud system elements or as complete elements.

Dimensions

PSB® Punching Reinforcement is dimensioned according to various approvals (ETA 13/0151, Germany Z-15-1-231, Poland AT-15-7688/2008, etc.). Therefore, we recommend our user-friendly dimensioning software Peikko Designer®, downloadable from Peikko’s Design Tool page. Please contact Peikko’s local Technical Support at any time for information or dimensioning questions.

Detailed technical information

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.

Model options

PSB®-S

PSB®-S Shear Force Reinforcement is used increasingly often in ceiling and foundation slabs. According to DIN 1045-1:2008-08, the shear force load bearing capacity must be demonstrated for each cross-section of reinforced concrete building elements.

Model options

PSB®-F

PSB®-F is intended for use in precast factories. The modular structure enables easy and fast installation of the punching reinforcement in the preferred phase of the automated production process without disturbing it.

PSB®-F consists of double-headed studs connected by preassembled plastic connectors to a flat bar as spacing bar with slotted holes in it. Applicable to element slabs and preferable as a space-saving stock solution. Available as 2- or 3-stud system elements.
