The weight of a concrete slab, supported directly onto a column, can result in concentrated localised shear stresses, causing the slab to ‘punch’ through the column below. Shearail® increases the shear resistance of a slab and safely transfers the shear load from the slab to the column.
Shearail® is EC2 and BS 8110 compliant, enabling site work to be carried out far more effectively and efficiently than traditional loose links. As a pre-fabricated system, Shearail® is designed to increase construction speed, improve build quality and reduce dependency on skilled labour – significantly reducing on-site costs.
Manufactured from approved materials under a certified Quality Management System, Shearail® provide Engineers and Contractors with the assurance that the material is from a traceable source and has been independently tested and verified for use in concrete floors in accordance with BS EN 1992-1-1 (EC2) and BS 8110 standards.
