Abeo has developed a simple and cost-effective system for fixing the ends of the SL-Decks to neighboring decks significantly increasing the capacity, span and stiffness of the deck structure.
The SL-Decks for fixed ends are delivered with additional reinforcement in the ends allowing for rebars to be placed across the ends of the decks connecting them in the same process as the grout is casted between the slabs.
The fixed-end assembly is carried out through horizontal brackets as shown on the pictures, after which the recess is grouted. This process is done at the same time as the joints are being casted. Slabs can be fixed to a varying degree depending on the dimension of the steel brackets.
