We inherited the tradition of technical excellence and attention to detail from our founder Eugène Freyssinet, who made his first experiments on prestressed concrete in 1906 and took out a patent for prestressing in 1928. Since then, Freyssinet has pioneered the use of high-strength prestressing wire and has continually innovated over the years, to now offer the best prestressing system combining high performance, durability and flexibility that can be applied to many different types of structures.
Freyssinet prestressing anchors from the C Range and have been proven in structures over the world to comply with the most stringent requirements: bridge decks and piers, liquefied natural gas storage tanks, etc.
In order to guarantee the best quality of service to all of its clients around the world, Freyssinet manufactures its anchors at its industrial subsidiary FPC (Freyssinet Product Company) and operates a central bank of site equipment.
Because workmanship is essential to the quality and durability, Freyssinet trains its teams in properly installing and grouting post-tensioning. Each year, operators, prestressing installation specialists, supervisors and engineers obtain qualifications certifying their skills, to Freyssinet standards as well as local authority requirements.
Freyssinet has an experienced team of Approved RMS Supervisors.
The C Range prestressing system is designed and certified for a wide range of applications:
- 15.2 mm and 15.7 mm diameter strands, grade 1770 MPa to 1860 MPa including galvanised strands or greased and sheathed strands,
- prestressing units holding up to 55 strands.
The system can be used in internal or external prestressing for concrete, steel, timber or brick structures:
- bonded or unbonded,
- with or without ducts,
- retensioning possible,
- detensioning possible,
- with electrical insulation,
- for cryogenic applications.
