Precast Foundation for Double Wall
Characterised by its reduced weight, Precast STRIP Foundation for Double Wall enables greater savings in installation costs and time while adding monolithic design advantages to the many other construction advantages the MONACHINO Precast whole of structure offer brings. With the many installation advantages, construction time and monolithic designadvantages, Precast STRIP Foundation and Double Wall are a perfect combination.
During the assembly process, the precast foundation is placed on the lean concrete, which has previously been prepared (1), then the double wall is mounted on the foundation and the bent rebars jutting out from the base (2) are inserted inside the Foundation element (3). A final casting of concrete embeds the wall’s rebars inside the precast foundation (4). The work is completed with the removal of all adjustment devices (5).
The way the precast foundation and the double wall are assembled is of particular interest. The wall is placed over the foundation element, from which the reinforced joints for anchoring the two elements jut out vertically.
For the assembly and alignment of the double wall, adjusting devices are used. These allow an easy, fast and precise installation.
During the production phase of the Precast Foundation, two anchor bolts are left within its central concrete walls, while the double wall is equipped with four threaded couplers. The adjusting devices are fixed to the anchor bolts using nuts and to the double wall using bolts.
This system not only allows the precast double wall to be aligned with pinpoint precision, but also eliminates any kind of shoring during assembly.
