Superior Support for Suspended Precast Concrete Floors
Zeus has been developed as a combined support and lifting hanger bracket for flange hung Double Tee and Ribbed precast floor units greater than 150mm deep.
The hanger bracket has been designed in accordance with NZS/AS 1170 and NZS 3101:2006. It is the only hanger that to date has been tested to the ‘Jenson Protocol’ by Holmes Solutions in New Zealand. The protocol recognises the combined diaphragm and beam rotation stresses induced in flooring units under extreme loading. Zeus is the best practice alternative to the “pigtail loop” detail publicised by SESOC as being hard to justify using rational analysis.
Purpose designed for use in seismic areas in plastic hinge zones, Zeus incorporates a life safety strap for added protection during an earthquake while accommodating building movement.
The two part system with adjustable leg lengths suits various precast unit depths (see table). Hot dipped Galvanised for durability from corrosion, Zeus is used as a duel purpose reinforcing and lifting system with a working load limit of 7 tonnes as per the Code of Practice. Easily assembled in the precast yard, it uses the Reid 7 tonne recess former and clutch accessories.
