The PFEIFER Column Shoe System

PFEIFER PCC Column Shoe System

PFEIFER PCC Column Shoe System: At PFEIFER, we are constantly developing optimised system extensions and improvements for the benefit of our customers and end-users. PFEIFER has further-developed a new variant in the product portfolio of the PFEIFER Column Shoe System – the new PCC Column Shoe.

The PFEIFER PCC Column Shoe System enables the load-bearing connection of column to foundations or column to column by simply bolting them together. The separation of foundations and columns for transport and assembly is therefore possible. The full carrying capacity is available immediately without casting or other additional boundary conditions. Technical proofs in the form of approvals and type tests make qualified detail solutions possible for tight column geometries. Low eccentricities between bolt axis and column shoe guarantee an ideal static model for efficient utilisation. Technical support for planning and execution by our experienced specialists ensures successful project completion.
