Post Tensioning Advantages

What is prestressing?

Post-tensioning is a method of reinforcing (strengthening) concrete or other materials with high-strength steel strands or bars, typically referred to as tendons. In many cases, post tensioning allows construction that would otherwise be impossible due to either site constraints or architectural requirements.
