PT Cable Estimation

Post Tension (PT) Cables are needed in concrete construction to add strength to thin and long slabs which allows more span lengths between support columns. The cables in PT cables have steel wires within plastic sheath. As they are tensioned after pouring concrete, they are named post-tension cables. Post-tensioning requires reinforcing concrete using high-strength steel strands called ‘tendons’. It is used in concrete structures containing apartment buildings, office buildings, slabs-on-ground, water tanks, bridges, etc. Pt Cable allows construction of structures and contractors need to locate PT Cables when repairing structures.

PT Cables allows structures and features like fewer beams, longer clear spans, more slender elements and thinner slabs which helps in reducing the amount of concrete needed for construction.It help in reducing building’s height and weight which can further contribute to more savings in terms of mechanical system costs.

Benefits of PT Cable Estimation

A compressive force is generated on the concrete when there is permanent stress and elongation in the PT cables which helps in countering the tensile forces due to load.This helps to increase the load-carrying capacity of the concrete structure. PT Cable makes the slabs and beams continuous so a single beam can be run from one end to other instead of placing a beam between all the columns. This system helps to increase the structure’s strength and the efficiency.

Rebar People provide PT estimation for various projects providing the customers with in-depth and complete package earlier to bid. Our estimators use the required PT slab system according to the need of project having banded and distributed tendons.The group of tendons which are placed together in a narrow strip along the column line are called banded tendon.The tendons or bundles of tendons spaced uniformly that run perpendicular to the banded tendons are called uniform or distributed tendon.

Tendon is the necessary element of a post-tensioning system.One or more pieces of post tensioning strand are coated with protective corrosion inhibiting coating and bare strands is used to house them with a duct.There are anchors placed on each end of the tendon which helps to transmit the forces in the structure.We recognize these tendons to ensure a complete and accurate estimate of the project.
