SI beams with variable height are particularly suited for
roofs with large column free spans – for example, in
industrial halls. The I-shaped cross section is typical for
prestressed beams. The slope of the top face is �:�6.

5.5.1 Characteristics

According to Eurocodes, the SI beam types have a fire
resistance up to 120 minutes. Standard cross-sections
are shown in the table below.

A number of remarkable monuments have been realized
in precast concrete by industry companies of the
industry. Prefabrication is very well suited for this type
of structures because of the moldability of concrete and
the high quality of execution. In addition, a large range
of surface textures and finishing is available.

11 SPECIAL PRODUCTS
A cost-effective solution for road acoustic barriers
has been developed, using prestressed hollow-core
elements. The wall structure comprises precast columns
clamped into foundation pockets, in which the long
hollow-core units are fixed. The aesthetic quality of the
acoustic barrier in the context of the environment may
be obtained by an applied surface finishing in wood,
architectural concrete or any other material.

Sound barrier with hollow-core units.

Control tower at Arlanda airport in Sweden, rising 83 m
above the ground. The façade of highly polished architec-
tural precast panels is ornamented with carefully selected
quotations from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
