Prestressed floor solutions
Prestressing by post-tensioning, which has already been commonly used in
structures throughout the world for many years, is becoming increasingly
widespread in the building sector. A growing number of architects, developers
and design offices have understood its advantages and are using it to construct
Contemporary architectural trends, reflecting modern lifestyles, favor
large uninterrupted floor areas, flexible internal layout and spaces that
are easy to modify and move around in, while considerably improving the
durability of buildings. These multiple requirements can be met through
prestressing by post-tensioning, which makes it possible to achieve large
unobstructed spans, with a minimum number of columns and reduced floor

Light Ind.Building, Singapore
Freyssinet manufactures and supplies a wide range of accessories (bearings,
expansion joints, etc.) and earthquake protection devices that comply with
the most stringent standards.
Structural accessories can be categorized into three families based on
their main function:
transfer major vertical loads, such as between a deck and its piers,
which ensure a continuous road surface, such as between a main deck and
its end spans,
devices, which reduce the transmission of inertial forces, such as
between a deck and its piers during a seismic event.
These solutions offer numerous benefits, particularly with regard to installation

Isoslab, simple, quick and safe construction in seismic areas
With ISOSLAB, Freyssinet has developed a technology that greatly simplifies
the design and the construction of buildings in seismic areas. The ISOSLAB
technology provides a seism free area on which developers can build standard
buildings with very limited consideration of earthquake loads and seismic
ISOSLAB relies on the base isolation principle. Working as a mattress,
it is designed to absorb the earthquake vibrations coming from the ground
into the building structure with four components: a foundation slab cast
directly on the ground, columns, isolators placed on top of the columns,
a top isolated slab on which the building is built.
Freyssinet offers anchoring solutions and associated services to companies
engineering special foundations and carrying out strengthening work
to ensure structural stability and reinforce the ground.
Products are developed and then manufactured in modern workshops by skilled
workers. Quality is the keyword at every stage in the manufacturing process,
and all products undergo exhaustive tests to guarantee best-in-class performance.
