The CAST-IN-PLACE ADJUSTABLE technology used to connect
steel beams to concrete walls. An efficient product that saves time,
reduces cost, and makes your construction business more sustainable.
No on-site welding, utilizes less crane time, and improves safety while costing
less. It is simply BETTER than the old-style methods used today.
SIMPLE AND EFFICIENT INSTALLATION
• Assemble the beam pocket
• Place in form
• Pour concrete
• Remove the forms leaving the beam pocket in place
• Set the beam
• Adjust the height with a wrench
• Secure the beam with included clamps
Architect Paul Karius and structural engineer Peter Monroe were
working on an industrial building with 48 steel beam to concrete
connections. On previous projects installation of beam pockets had frustrated
the team with their poor implementation, so they created this new beam pocket
technology to simplify and improve a critical construction component.
Karius worked with a number of contractors to build several testing
prototypes. Monroe assisted with structural analysis to help refine
the prototypes. After many test concrete pours, the design was refined
and submitted for patent review. The BEAM POCKET has received approval on its first US patent, and in process for
receiving Canadian and other Patents.
