Mixed steel-concrete beam and column
Evolved self-supporting structures made of steel and concrete, NPS® SYSTEM is a high performance new generation construction technology which also has high seismic resistance. Created by Tecnostrutture. A complete prefabricated construction technology that combines all the structural elements of a construction in a single solution: beam, column and floor. A complete, innovative, safe, high-performing, eco-friendly and CE and EN 1090 certified response, as required by the most recent EU regulation on the performance characteristics of the structural steel components. Hence, Tecnostrutture was the first to certify its production in February 2012.The NPS® System is a complete and flexible modular system built of horizontal structures - NPS® Beams and NPS® Ceiling - and vertical structures - PDTI® NPS® , PTC® NPS®, and BASIC® NPS® Columns, and NPS® WALL. The completely self-supported elements, produced at the plant, are mounted at the site, eliminating the need for formwork and temporary shoring.The composite steel-concrete product, after the cast is complete, gives rise to a mixed structure with features that adhere to the required performance level, responding to construction Standards in seismic zones as required by NTC 2008 and Eurocode 4.
NPS® CORE - This solution meets all the requirements of industrial buildings, multi-storey car parks and infrastructures. It is fire resistant up to 180 minutes, seismic resistant and can accommodate wiring. NPSCORE is optimal for long spans being self-supporting for over 18 meters. Made of spun concrete, PTC columns ensure high load performance even with slim sections. This means more parking spaces, more indoor space and less impact on the architectural layout.
