Precast Concrete Drainage Products
Go with the flow!
Precast concrete storm and sanitary drainage products are the unseen workhorses of modern society. Designed for strength, durability and accessibility, concrete is the choice of specifiers and engineers providing the truly best solution for their clients.
The importance of density and resistance to abrasion as well as economical concrete casting makes KRAFT CURING's accelerated curing systems the go-to solution in order to improve speed of production and provide best results.
Responsible today, reliable tomorrow! Rigid, rugged and resilient, precast concrete pipes are utilized in civil engineering/construction for storm and sanitary drainage. Concrete pipe is the strongest pipe available, provides a functional life at least twice as long as lesser materials, is non-flammable and provides many other benefits compared to steel and plastic pipe.
Accelerated curing systems from KRAFT CURING win over customers with low operating cost, durable results, and concrete hardening duration within 12 hours while reducing breakage to bells and spigots.
Well hardened for compressive and flexural strength! Prestressed concrete provides the best of both worlds – high load capacity and flexibility – thanks to the combination of concrete and prestressing steel. Whether incorporated in bridge design, elevated public transport systems, for parking garages, in commercial centers or residential developments, prestress concrete elements provide mankind with a safe, durable and economic structural solution.
KRAFT CURING accelerated concrete curing systems ensure the economical hardening of hollow-core in 8 to 10 hours and bridge beams in 16 to 18 hours. Economic and cost-cutting!
Precast Concrete Walls and ceilings
Materials for the home builder!
Precast concrete elements provide the consistency and quality found only in factory production systems, offer years of service and provide an economical construction solution.
In addition to vapor, steam, hot water radiation and hot air convection curing systems, KRAFT CURING offers ideal curing enclosures, including retractable tents, insulated chambers and tarp rollers to achieve the highest quality.
Precast concrete hollow-core
A concrete lightweight with high structural efficiency! Ideal for commercial, residential, office and parking structures, precast hollow-core concrete planks offer the benefits of low self-to-load bearing weight, speed of erection and good thermal insulation.
Accelerated curing systems by KRAFT CURING accelerate concrete hardening via vapor/steam or radiant heat ensuring consistent concrete temperatures and protecting against dry shrinkage cracking.
Concrete Weight Coated pipe
Undersea pipeline for energy resources! For pipes to remain underwater and stable on the seabed, they require a special concrete coating providing extra weight for anti-buoyancy. The coating must provide weight, the concrete dense and durable for many years of trouble-free underwater service.
KRAFT CURING has not only the technology but the fabrication and project management resources to design, erect, commission and service specialized producers of anti-buoyancy pipe projects.
Precast Concrete Tunnel segments
No tunnel vision, intelligent solutions! Prefabricated concrete segments are used for liners in tunnel construction. The production of tunnel segments is demanding; requiring a great deal of planning, scheduling and punctuality as the tunnel boringmachine – TBM – cannot run out of segments halfway on its way through a mountain or under a river.
KRAFT CURING offers several curing solutions for the accelerated hardening of concrete segments, depending on carousel or static production style, space availability and project specifications for post curing and quality control documentation.
Concrete bridge segments
Connecting continents – segmental bridges!
Post-tensioned precast concrete segmental bridge elements, designed to carry heavy loads, withstand the weather and provide a lifetime of service.
KRAFT CURING provides accelerated curing systems for bridge segments four meters long and 20 meters wide in retractable tents with steam. The perfect solution for controlled curing of large precast concrete parts.
Foam concrete or lightweight porous concrete forms bubbles during hardening. Its light weight yet high stability makes it ideal for use in flat roofs, as an intermediate layer in structures, as filler, or as a heat-insulating base layer.
KRAFT CURING curing systems improve the hardening process, produce tougher corners and edges and guarantee quicker hardening.
Concrete roof tiles
Concrete roof tiles, unlike clay tiles, are not fired but cured at low temperatures, reducing the carbon footprint.
