Mixed steel-concrete beam and column

Tecnostrutture has cooperated with the creative team RNDR Studio & OAF Design in order to improve the PTC® column: we have applied smart devices to the PTC® column to fulfil the need for a more comfortable, safer, easier and sustainable living. The result is Smart PTC®, a column that becomes a real hub for the building automation.
Smart PTC® is a hybrid element: designed as innovative structural and architectural element due to its extremely performant slim sections and to the wide range of finishing, it becomes now the centre of an automation system that includes lighting and interaction with the people who live into the building. Smart PTC® is the first element of a home automation system designed to bear the load of a building while fulfilling the need of the people who live inside. Ideal as a design component thanks to its numerous colour finishes, polishing or chrome plating. It is recommended for fire resistant constructions to maximise the internal space of a building, thanks to the compactness of its sections. With UNI EN 13225 CE marking, the patented Smart NPS® PTC® Column is realised using spun concrete for high performance, up to class C70/85. The spinning treatment allows the mechanical characteristics of the materials to be exploited to the maximum. It derives from a reduction in the structural section, with resulting benefits in terms of usability of space, and a greater bearing capacity compared to traditional structures. The confection procedure allows extrem
