PSB® Punching Reinforcement — System Against Punching Shear Failure of Slabs

PSB® Punching Reinforcement is an ETA-approved system providing the highest resistance on the market. PSB® Punching and Shear Rails offer simple and reliable solutions against punching shear failure and shear failure of slabs, foundations, walls and beams by increasing their resistance.

PSB® Punching Reinforcement is applicable to various kinds of structural systems and installation situations. PSB® rails consist of double-headed studs, welded to a non-structural flat bar. The system is available as 2- or 3- stud elements, which can be used to construct the required reinforcement, or as complete elements with at least 10 studs. Elements are manufactured individually according to the static requirements. Being fully integrated in the concrete elements, it is an ideal reinforcement system for monolithic slim structures or flat concrete structures in general, which can be used as punching reinforcement (PSB®) or shear reinforcement (PSB-S). 

PSB®

PSB® consists of double-headed studs, assembled by a flat bar as spacing bar. Applicable to top and bottom installation. Available as 2- or 3-stud system elements or as complete elements.

Materials

Double-headed studs are made from concrete reinforcement steel B500B (according to EN 10080, DIN 488) and are available in diameters of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 25, 28 and 32 mm. ETA-13/0151 approves the use of PSB® elements with diameters of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20 and 25 mm. Elements using studs with larger diameters (28 mm and 32 mm) can also be produced, but they are not within the scope of ETA-13/0151. The assembly bar consists of structural steel S235 or B500B. Each PSB® Punching Reinforcement component is individually manufactured according to the static requirements. With the exception of the PSB-F type, it is specially developed with multiple components for stock solutions in order to ensure the best flexibility.

Dimensions

PSB® Punching Reinforcement is dimensioned according to various approvals (ETA 13/0151, Germany Z-15-1-231, Poland AT-15-7688/2008, etc.). Therefore, we recommend our user-friendly dimensioning software Peikko Designer®, downloadable from Peikko’s Design Tool page. Please contact Peikko’s local Technical Support at any time for information or dimensioning questions.

PSB-S

PSB-S Shear Force Reinforcement is used increasingly often in ceiling and foundation slabs. According to DIN 1045-1:2008-08, the shear force load bearing capacity must be demonstrated for each cross-section of reinforced concrete building elements.

Materials

Double-headed studs are made from concrete reinforcement steel B500B (according to EN 10080, DIN 488) and are available in diameters of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 25, 28 and 32 mm. ETA-13/0151 approves the use of PSB® elements with diameters of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20 and 25 mm. Elements using studs with larger diameters (28 mm and 32 mm) can also be produced, but they are not within the scope of ETA-13/0151. The assembly bar consists of structural steel S235 or B500B.

PSB-F

PSB-F is intended for use in precast factories. The modular structure enables easy and fast installation of the punching reinforcement in the preferred phase of the automated production process without disturbing it.

PSB-F consists of double-headed studs connected by preassembled plastic connectors to a flat bar as spacing bar with slotted holes in it. Applicable to element slabs and preferable as a space-saving stock solution. Available as 2- or 3-stud system elements. 

Materials

Double-headed studs are made from concrete reinforcement steel B500B (according to EN 10080, DIN 488) and are available in diameters of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 25, 28 and 32 mm. ETA-13/0151 approves the use of PSB elements with diameters of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20 and 25 mm.
