The factory and laboratory complex of the biotechnology company Biotecha is the first project in Lithuania for which Peikko Lietuva designed new product - DELTABEAM® Green composite beams. The total length of the beams produced is 412 meters. The length of individual beams ranges from 5 to 10 meters, and these beams have integrated REI90 fire resistance, eliminating the need for additional fire protection in the facility.
The beams were connected with two types of support connections - Anchor Bolts and PCs® corbels. DELTABEAM® Green beams allow for the installation of slim floors in the facility, where the beam with the slab is of the same thickness. In addition to the mentioned beams, PETRA® slab hangers, designed to form openings in perforated slab decks, were also produced for this project as well as fastening plates WELDA®, PCs® corbels, and anchor bolts.
DELTABEAM® Green Composite Beams, made from recycled materials, significantly reduce CO2 emissions compared to standard steel, composite, or reinforced concrete beams. When comparing the production and logistics of DELTABEAM® Green Composite Beams with standard DELTABEAM® Composite Beams, the CO2 emission in the Biotecha project was reduced by as much as 26 tons!
The DELTABEAM® Green Composite Beam also has integrated fire resistance, eliminating the need for additional painting. This ensures easy installation of engineering systems and is well-suited to reduce the height of the space, influencing the reduction of heating and ventilation costs.
Peikko solutions make construction processes more efficient and sustainable, so by choosing DELTABEAM® Green Composite Beams, the customer not only receives a high-quality product that saves future maintenance costs but also contributes to the creation of a more sustainable construction sector.
