Precast Prestressed T Form Construction Video, including concrete form oil application

Learn how a double tee structural prestressed concrete member is plant produced.

Thanks to the Florida Precast Concrete Association.

This video will explain the entire process of producing a prestressed concrete unit at a prestressing plant, in this case, a double T. A double T is used primarily in parking structures, but can be used in virtually any type of building including office buildings, industrial buildings, and schools to name a few.

Randy Neumeyer: Double Ts are kind of a unique product with having the capability of having a very long span. When we start talking long spans, you're talking 60 feet plus, and sometimes go as high as 120 feet.

Narrator: The typical day of a prestressing plant usually starts very early in the morning. The product from the previous days' casting has cured by now, and the pieces need to be stripped from the form to get ready for today's casting.

For any prestressing plant, it is very important to maintain a clean plant. Maintaining neatness is not only positive from an image standpoint, but also from a safety standpoint, since any debris that might be leftover from the day before could create a tripping hazard or other safety problem.
