At Taracon we specialize in providing our clients with precast concrete products that offer superior design and aesthetic flexibility, exceptional quality and durability.
Precast concrete is suitable for a range of construction applications which include bridges, buildings and other structures that require exceptional strength, safety and durability. Because of this, precast concrete is regarded as one of the best materials for the manufacturing of construction beams and columns.
Precast Concrete Beams
Taracon’s prestressed concrete beams are horizontal structural components designed and manufactured to support other structures that include solid slabs, additional beams, hollow core slabs and double tees.
Precast concrete beams are typically designed in three basic shapes which include L-shaped, Inverted Tee and Rectangular. They are also designed based on specifications which include loading conditions, spans and the desired level of reinforcement.
At Taracon, we have the capabilities to manufacture several types of precast concrete beams, which include:
Spandrel (Edge) Beams
Beams that span the entire perimeter of a structure, provide support for floor and roof loads and are a marker of floor levels between stories of a building.
Typically used in stadium construction (indoor and outdoor arenas), raker beams are angled and notched to be able to support riser or terracing units.
Beams designed to be used over door and window openings. They provide extra reinforcement and support for the structures that are placed above these specific areas.
Beams that are constructed and cast with a balcony integrated into the design.
Our beams can be cast with various levels of finishing ranging from smooth to rough, depending on the intended use and application once the structure arrives at the construction site.
