Industrial Pavements

APS Industrial Pavements and Warehouse Floors are constructed using the Slab Post Tensioning System. High Capacity, high performance ground bearing Post Tensioned Slabs can be detailed and constructed to meet the customer requirements, even on poor or low bearing strength sites.

APS Post Tensioned Ground Slabs are designed specifically to the requirements of the facility. Our design professionals can provide expert assistance in determining the most appropriate solution for your project based on over 30 years of practical experiences.

Typical Post Tensioning Applications

  • Warehouse Floors
  • Container handling and Storage Facilities
  • Tank Floors
  • Rail Sidings
  • Wharf Pavements
  • Cool Stores Slabs
  • Airport Apron Slabs
  • Sporting area Slabs

2000 to 3000m2 pours or larger areas are typically possible, using modern concrete laser screed machines etc. By adopting coupled construction joints, floor areas up to 10,000m2 without movement joints are easily achievable.

Characteristics of PT Slabs and Pavements

  • Large Joint Free Area
  • Load Capacity and Robustness
  • Suitable on Poor Subgrade
  • Thin and Flexible
  • Durability and Active Crack Control
  • Ideal for Liquid Storage Structures
  • Efficient use of Materials
  • Suitable for Internal and External Conditions
  • Quality Controlled Product.

APS would be pleased to provide free assessment and proposal for your Industrial Pavement or Warehouse Floor Project.

Prestressed Piles and Pile heads

Prestressed concrete piles are vital elements in the foundations of buildings, bridges and marine structures throughout the world. Prestressed concrete piles are typically made with Prestressing Tendons to obtain the tensile strength required, to survive handling and driving, and to provide sufficient bending resistance.

Typical long concrete piles can be difficult to handle and transport. Pile joints can be used to join two or more short piles to form one long pile. Pile joints can be used with both precast and prestressed concrete piles.

Prestressed Concrete Pile Advantages

Prestressing concrete piles has several benefits. Tensile stresses, which can be set up in a pile during driving, can be better resisted, and the pile is less likely to be damaged during handling. Bending stresses, which can occur during driving, are also less likely to produce cracking. However, the ultimate strength in axial compression is decreased as the level of prestressing is increased. Therefore, prestressed piles are more vulnerable to damage from striking obstructions during driving. As a result they are most suitable for applications where the pile length is predictable and constant.
