15ft double Tees
15ft Double tees are the premium choice for parking decks and can also be used in roof applications where a long, clear span is required. 15ft Double Tees are 25% wider than typical industry double tees. This added square footage benefits costs regarding shipping and erecting. Construction schedules are benefited as well due to fewer pieces handled. Shipping and handling of these double tees will be done using slanted frames so that over width loads are not a concern. The shipping costs will be unaffected.
Advantages of Precast Double Tees:
Several factors contribute to economical savings as well. Fewer pieces result in a shorter installation duration and reduced cost can be realized. Fewer joints requires less sealant and less connections, which provides savings. Since the typical column spacing increases from 36 feet to 45 feet, fewer columns and fewer footings provide additional cost reductions.
New automated equipment is used in the production of these double tees. This equipment will be used for laying out the length and width of the piece as well as the embedments. Additionally, the equipment will be used for the finishing operations. Together this will help ensure that your product is cast accurately with a quality finish that is more consistent from piece to piece. This reduction yields fewer joints that result in a smoother driving experience, enhanced openness, less maintenance and a more economical structure. Due to fewer joints that are more widely spaced, a driver experiences a smoother surface. This double tee will be the same depth as a typical 12’ double tee but with a wider stem spacing. This allows more natural light to enter the parking structure creating an enhanced feeling of openness and brightness. Fewer joints also result in less sealant and less connections, requiring less maintenance.
