Smart steel. Since 1981.

A-BEAM®

A-BEAM® and Anstar’s connection technology form part of the frame system, offering cost-efficiency and flexibility for construction. The beams are used as both a single-span and continuous-span structure and designed without separate fire protection up to fire resistance class R180. The standard connection is the AEP®hidden bracket to a reinforced concrete column and the AEL hidden bracket to a composite column. A connection library has also been prepared for the beam for typical connections to various frame structures. The beam type selection and preliminary dimensioning of the composite structure are performed using the ABEAM quick dimensioning software, which is available for download on the Software page. Watch the A-BEAM® introduction video.        

A-BEAM W®

The W-type composite beam has been particularly designed for winter construction conditions. The beam acts as the load-bearing composite structure of a low intermediate floor. The housing is made of a steel plate, and its bending resistance is adjusted by means of reinforcement and lower flange thickness. The W beam housing is filled with concrete at the machine shop. In the final stage, the beam acts as a composite structure with the hollow-core slabs and the surface casting. The bending resistance of the beam is sufficient for the loads on the hollow-core slabs during installation.

A-BEAM S®

The S-type beam acts as the load-bearing composite structure of a low intermediate floor. The housing is made of steel plate, and its bending resistance is adjusted by means of plate thickness. The beam is delivered without grouting inside, and the grouting is performed on the site. In the final stage, the beam acts as a composite structure with the hollow-core slabs and the surface casting. The bending resistance of the beam is sufficient for the loads on the hollow-core slabs during installation.

Products

A-BEAM®

A-BEAM® and Anstar’s connection technology form part of the frame system, offering cost-efficiency and flexibility for construction.

Ties

Diagonal ties are used in concrete sandwich panels to connect the outer skin with the inner skin through the insulation layer. The ties transfer the self-weight and wind loads of the outer skin to the inner skin.

Fastening plates

Fastening plates are used on cast-in-place and prefabricated structures to provide a mounting surface for welding.

Brackets and supports

Anstar has developed bracket and support systems for efficient and affordable construction. The connection pieces are easy to install both at the prefabrication factory and on site.

Balcony connections

Balcony hinges are used to transfer horizontal forces from the balcony to the building frame. The hinged connection enables vertical movement.

Bolts and shoes

Anchor bolts and column shoes can be used in concrete element frame connections to foundations and column extensions.

Rebar couplers

Rebar couplers are used for joining rebars with full tension capacity. The ends of bars to be joined are provided with threads, and the bars are joined using a coupler sleeve that transfers the force on the rebar across the connection.

Bracing connections

ADE® and ADK bracing connections are designed for stabilising the concrete element frame. These connections
are used in the joints between concrete columns and stabilising steel bracings.
