The innovation of the rib and block system with a Fire Rating certificate and thermal insulation.
We specialise in light, eco-friendly precast concrete solutions FOR BEAMS,SLABS AND STAIRS, EASY TO HANDLE AND INSTALL FOR THE CREATION OF A MONOLITHIC STRUCTURE.
Cobute has worked with Loxton Group Property Development on one of their recent residential projects, Sea Bamboo, in Atlantic Beach Estate, in Melkbosstrand. The project, which is very close to completion, made use of the integrated Cobute precast shutters for stairs, beams and decking.
Laboratory tests conducted by the Department of Civil Engineering at UCT on behalf of Cobute have shown that beams constructed using the Cobute precast system have a higher bending moment capacity (approximately 10%) and practically the same shear strength capacity, compared to conventionally cast beams. More structural benefits with easy installation. The full report can be downloaded here.
Cobute slabs are manufactured in a wide range of thicknesses, from 150 to 350 mm, in 25 mm increments. Request the Residential and Commercial loading charts to assist you in the slab design and reinforcement selection in your next project.
