Moore Concrete have been involved in numerous construction projects, working in conjunction with key contractors to manufacture bespoke reinforced and prestressed precast concrete units.
Precast Concrete Portal Frames are a combination of two columns and a normal beam with additional bending strength, to form a U shape. The units are designed for individual projects meaning the entire Portal Frame structure can be tailored to exact customer specifications.

The units are designed for individual projects meaning the entire Portal Frame structure can be tailored to exact customer specifications.
Typically ranges of sizes are available with spans from 1.2m to 6m and internal heights varying between 600mm and 3m.
Wall thickness can vary between 150 and 500mm.
Additional bending strength as some of the bending moment is transferred from the beam to the columns.
Very strong joints resulting in either an increased available beam span or reduced size of beam.
Very efficient construction technique to use for wide span buildings.
Faster alternative to cast insitu abutments and bridge beam.
More cost effective solution than casting insitu abutments and bridge beams.
Additional inverted T wall units can be jointed to the columns of the inverted U shaped portal frame to increase clearance heights of horizontal beams. Spans from 4m to 12m with clearance heights of up to 6m can be manufactured.
Similarity an inverted U sharped portal frame maybe mounted on another U shaped portal frame to form a box, with convex and concave socket joints in the adjoining walls. Spans up to 12m can be produced with internal clearance heights of up to 6m can be achieved.
