Sockets and loops are essential steel elements for the handling of prefabricated concrete manufactures.
The range includes tapped sockets with a through hole for anchorage reinforcements to pass through, sockets fixed on long or short specially shaped anchorage rods, and sockets fixed on linear reinforcement rods.
Loops are rings of plaited steel. Loops must be partially embedded in the prefabricated concrete element connected with the reinforcement of the prefabricated concrete manufacture. Loops and sockets are simple, effective systems for anchoring prefabricated concrete elements once they have reached their final position in the construction site.
Prefabricated concrete elements should always be handled with great care. Workers must not stand or pass underneath or in the immediate vicinity of suspended loads. Proper use of the product and skilled handling of concrete manufactures by workers aware of the risks involved in their tasks are essential. Proper handling guarantees safety in the workplace.
