Concrete Elements for Elevator Shafts

With made-to-measure concrete shaft elements Hieber Betonfertigteilwerk offers ready-to-install floor connections. The system components are cast on four sides and delivered fully equip-ped. All the installation parts and recesses such as door openings and fall protection devices are ­already integrated into the ­precast elements at the factory. The way in which the individual elements are linked together ­depends on the environment: For interior elevator shafts, a sheathing connector ensures a sufficiently stable connection. In the case of external shafts and shafts that are required to reinforce the building in contrast, the concrete elements are held together with a continuous screw connection reinforcement. The inside of the shaft must be between 1.5 × 1.5 m and 3.5 × 2.5 m large, and the wall thicknesses vary between 15 and 30 cm. The maximum height of the concrete elements is 7 m,
although it is normally storey-height. Hieber also offers the elevator core box as a prefabricated part including a water pressure-
tight connection.
