Post tensioning

Post tensioning

Our tensioning unit has lots of experience and competence in the field of post tensioned structures. The unit also does planning and design guidance in post tensioning. We are happy to speak about the possibilities of a post-tension alternative in any project when choosing a frame solution. 

Tensioning is work requiring a special level of competence. Both the designers and the contractor need personnel with special skills as well as special equipment. The work requires particular care and detailed supervision of work, especially as it is done in parallel with other construction work.

We have solid experience from challenging projects both in Finland and abroad. We perform the tensioning of large and challenging projects cast on site, the tensioning of bridges, cable stay structures and tension rods or tensioned rock anchoring.

We represent Mekano4 tensioning system that has a Europian technical assessment (ETA). 

Ground anchoring

We manufacture ground anchors in Finland and we can deliver them with short lead time and large quantities to construction sites in Scandinavia due to short distancies. 

Extensive fleet for various kinds of tensioning, lifting and jacking assignments

We have an extensive fleet for various kinds of tensioning, lifting and jacking assignments. In addition to customary tensioning, we provide customised solutions for the specific needs of our customers.

Benefits of tensioning

Reinforcing concrete structures by means of tensioning requires high-level special competence. It reduces the number of columns needed, and the deck structures are thinner than when traditional construction methods are used. Furthermore, the benefits of tensioning include the lack of cracking of structures, which also leads to water tightness and improved durability.

We master the entire chain

Our tensioning unit operations are certified. This indicates that the work is performed by an experienced specialist company with management, quality system and order/supply chain that have been approved by an external assessor. The tensioning unit has solid experience from challenging projects both in Finland and abroad. The tensioning unit has implemented tensioning of large and demanding projects cast on site, bridge tensioning, cable stay structures and tension rods as well as tensioned rock anchoring.

Important work safety

Safety in the construction industry always comes first, and special attention is paid to it in special contracting, such as post-tension work. Those who work in the unit consider it their duty to see that those who work with them can work safely and are aware of the risks involved in the work.
