Nowadays, the cast in situ construction of slabs using post tension
systems is an alternative that should be seriously considered. The
increasing cost of materials, construction equipment›s, labor and
transport demands the maximum optimization of resources. It also
involves the use of high quality techniques, saves materials costs and
is fast in execution.
The post tensioning method lightens the structure, allows the reduction
of the slab thickness and allows releasing the formwork in record time
and it even g
