Expertise

Cable Stay Technology

Freyssinet's cable-staying technology was first developed in the Mid-1970s and has been evolving ever since. It is the reference in terms of fatigue resistance, corrosion protection and ease of inspection and replacement.

The company also manufactures and supplies a wide range of accessories (bearings, expansion joints, etc.) and earthquake protection devices that comply with the most stringent worldwide standards.

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 buildings.

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 depths.

Freyssinet, Inc. offers integrated solutions comprising:

  • Anchor and Floor Design
  • Production
  • Supply of its Prestressing Processes
  • Installation

By being involved in each stage of implementation of its systems, Freyssinet, Inc. is able to control every aspect of its prestressed floor solutions.


Building Equipment

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:
  • Bearings, which transfer major vertical loads, such as between a deck and its piers
  • Expansion Joints, which ensure a continuous road surface, such as between a main deck and its end spans
  • Earthquake Protection Devices, which reduce the transmission
