30 REASONS why Telescopic Connectors are more efficient than rolled steel angles for installing precast stairs

It’s increasingly common to combine precast concrete stairs and landings with core walls which are poured in situ. When connection methods are left as an afterthought, using rolled steel angles is often the only practical, yet inefficient, fixing solution.

With a little up-front planning, there’s much to gain by incorporating telescopic connectors, which come with a host of advantages; such as improved health and safety, robustness compliance, and significantly improved cost effectiveness.

Invisible Connections has recently published ‘30 REASONS,’ explaining why Telescopic Connectors are more efficient than rolled steel angles when installing precast stairs which you can download here.

As specialists in precast concrete car park construction, we use telescopic connectors for many key applications. Particularly, the BSF system helps us to construct a ‘modern’ frame without cumbersome corbel supports and enables rapid assembly on site. The technical back-up provided by Invisible Connections provides us with added reassurance.
