Anchors for injection for Reinforcement of historical buildings - GBOS

Bossong

Anchors for injection for Reinforcement of historical buildings - GBOS
Over the last recent years a greater and greater attention to the existing building heritage and to the activities aimed to the preservation of both buildings with high architectural value and those belonging to the category of traditional buildings has been developed. Especially in reinforcement works, the Bossong company has carried out research on techniques and materials aimed at reinforcing masonry structures, proposing controlled injection anchors with sock for the consolidation of historic buildings, called GBOS. CHARACTERISTICS The system is composed by a strong element , a high strength stainless steel bar -AISI 304 or AISI 316- (ft nom 750 N/mm2 - fy nom 650 N/mm2 ), with full thread along the entire length. It is provided of a sock with the function of controlling the coaxially carried injection of the grout. These two elements, together with the grout, are fundamental to make integral the reinforcing element to the masonry. Besides allowing good injection operations, avoiding unexpected and often damaging spread of grout in voids and cavity that can be present in the existing walls, the sock guarantees the adherence of the injected material to the substrate throughout its entire length and a homogeneous distribution of stress thanks to both the adherence of injected material and the mechanical interlock that the injected grout develops with masonry. The line of anchors for controlled injection is complete with a range of accessories in AISI 316 stainless steel, couplers, turnbuckles, nuts, to fulfil the different needs of each project; Bossong can provide un-tensioned steel reinforcements, pre-stressed tendons, vertical anchors and anchors with every degree of tilt.

System of slab consolidation
Negli interventi di ristrutturazione degli edifici in muratura, I solai hanno un ruolo fondamentale per il consolidamento statico e antisismico degli edifici, grazie alla formazione della cerchiatura perimetrale che evita il ribaltamento delle pareti e alla formazione della soletta collaborante interconnessa al solaio esistente che crea un piano rigido. In particolare, l’obiettivo è quello di realizzare interventi tali da ottenere il “comportamento scatolare” del fabbricato esistente. L’efficace collegamento tra i solai e le pareti è indispensabile per assicurare la continuità strutturale degli elementi portanti dell’edificio: al solaio il compito di ridistribuire al meglio le forze orizzontali sulle pareti, formazione del piano rigido, oltre a evitarne il ribaltamento. Caratteristiche La realizzazione di una nuova soletta collaborante leggera, collegata al solaio esistente grazie al contributo dei Connettori CentroStorico Legno, Acciaio, Calcestruzzo, Chimico e alla muratura con Connettore CentroStorico Perimetrale, incrementa la sicurezza antisismica dell’edificio. Inoltre, la nuova soletta collaborante in Calcestruzzo Leca, collegata al solaio e alle pareti esistenti tramite i Connettori CentroStorico e Perimetrale, consente di ridurre il peso gravante sulle strutturesino al 50% rispetto a una soluzione tradizionale. Grazie anche al contributo dei massetti e sottofondi alleggeriti Leca, il sistema assicura positivi effetti sia sulla riduzione delle masse oscillanti durante l’evento sismico che sull’aumento della portata utile del solaio.

Plastbau Wall System 3

Poliespanso

Wall system | Plastbau 3
The Wall System Plastbau 3, is a custom formwork element for the casting of reinforced concrete supporting walls. It consists of two high-density EPS panels joined together and spaced out by metal lattices. The panels of standard width with design height, are placed side by side and form a rigid structure ready to receive the jet. Installation is carried out manually and is facilitated by special“U”profiles. The panels of the perimeter walls are prepared in the factory with the external slab suitably higher than the internal one at the height of the finished slab. Thanks to the three-dimensional iron lattice embedded in the panel, no additional formwork is required. A very simple hot blade instrument allows to dig quickly and cleanly the traces necessary for the installation of electrical and hydro-sanitary channels. CHARACTERISTICS The panel Plastbau®-3 has a vertical reinforcement duly integrated with horizontal reinforcement, allows to create structures in c.a. monolithic making the construction antiseismic. Its high versatility allows to adapt the system to the needs of the designer, with the appropriate calculations. These and other solutions allow to reduce the costs of realization, to improve the design and housing comfort of the buildings. You can also reach the value of insulation to air noise, through the use of the panels, which have a high sound-absorbing power. The thermal insulation power is also very high and varies depending on the thickness of the two walls of expanded polystyrene. Connected to the high thermal insulation power is the saving factor.

Renovation of the Villafranca building with the FerriTECHNIC structural reinforcement and restoration system

Ferri

Structural restoration and consolidation system | FerriTECHNIC
Ferri has developed a structural restoration and consolidation system called FerriTECHNIC through the use of a range of new-concept materials and innovative techniques that are more effective and easier to apply, such as structural mortars and concrete suitable for the restoration and consolidation of deteriorated walls and facades, where different structural and construction elements often coexist, such as reinforced concrete, plaster and exposed bricks, to the detriment of the stability and aesthetic value of the facades themselves. Moreover, due to the deterioration to which the cementitious plasters are exposed, even safety can be compromised with the consequent risk of plaster detachment and danger of collapse. CHARACTERISTICS The damage that can occur in a building are of varying nature and extent, depending on the case, the system for facade Renovation works on moisture stains, which can prevent annoying and harmful leakage into the building and cracks. The system for Armed Structural Reinforcement uses a series of products, from nets to mortars, bio lime and connectors made of glass or carbon yarn, which are also highly performing in seismic areas. When the reinforced concrete degrades, leaving the reinforcement no longer sufficiently protected and subject to oxidation and increase in volume, a proper Restoration of the Concrete requires good protection of the reinforcement with certified products. The fresh Structural Concrete with modern formulations known as self-compacting ensures a homogeneous and uniform appearance, which is not required. In addition, the range of products includes Connectors suitable for structural interconnections of masonry even in seismic areas.

Architectural Load-Bearing Structures Pillars of the Building Project

Load-bearing structures are essential to support the weight of a building and ensure its stability. They must be designed considering the specific needs of the building, such as the type of load they will need to bear, the climatic conditions of the area, and the available materials. For example, in taller buildings, more complex structures may be required to handle vertical loads and lateral wind forces. Innovation in construction technologies has led to significant developments in load-bearing structures, with the use of advanced materials offering strength and flexibility, such as reinforced concrete, structural steel, and composite materials.
