PC® Beam Shoe
PC® Beam Shoes are used for easy installation of both reinforced and pre-stressed precast concrete beams to columns. PC® Beam Shoes are used as the counterpart for PCs® Corbels. PC® Beam Shoes are cast to the beam where all parts of the beam shoe are hidden. It consists of steel plates that form a pocket for corbel and reinforcing bars to anchor forces into the beam. PC® Beam Shoes are dimensioned to be used with PCs® Corbel so that the ﬁnal position of the beam installed on the corbel can be freely adjusted. After the corbel plate of PCs® Corbel is bolted onto the column, a beam with PC® Beam Shoe can be installed on the corbel without any wedging or welding.
