Build like everybody is watching!
Cobute is committed to building the best structures with its precast concrete shutters for slabs, beams, stairs and edge ribs. The only question is - is it going to be your structure?
The precast edge rib is a permanent concrete edge shutter, manufactured with the elements of the Cobute precast beam and rib systems.
The edge rib replaces timber shutters that would increase not only the amount of waste on site but also installation speed while improving the finishing. Its applications include:
edge to stairwell
edge to cantilever balcony
edge to roof slab
The edge rib consists of an L shaped rib, with zigzag steel and a concrete edge. The Engineer design specifies both the steel reinforcement of the edge rib, as well as the height of the side panel, which ranges from 150 to 300 mm. When used combination with the slab system, the rib can include a lip. Once poured, the permanent shutter forms the outer side of a concrete edge, without requiring any carpentry work.
When used for roof slabs, the Cobute edge rib creates a monolithic connection with the slab, which avoids shrinkage cracks, usually occurring between masonry and concrete when bricks are used.
