Precast Concrete Double-Tee Beam - Concrete Release Agent Application

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Oct 21, 2016 3:23:21 PM

This week's video is about manufacturing a Double-Tee prestressed precast concrete beam.

From Wikipedia, "A double tee or double-T beam is a load-bearing structure that resembles two T-beams connected to each other side by side. The strong bond of the flange (horizontal section) and the two webs (vertical members, also known as stems) creates a structure that is capable of withstanding high loads while having a long span. The typical sizes of double tees are up to 15 feet (4.6 m) for flange width, up to 5 feet (1.5 m) for web depth, and up to 80 feet (24 m) or more for span length. Double tees are pre-manufactured from prestressed concrete which allows construction time to be shorten."
