TiltPro does the tilt-up engineering design of concrete wall panels for their safe lifting from their casting beds to their final erected position. TiltPro’s engineers also design the safe temporary propping of the erected panels against wind loads until the roof steel structures are fixed to the panels, and the bottom of the panels are permanantly fixed to their footing or the slab.
A finite element analysis software is used to do the stress analysis for the safe lifting of each concrete tilt-up wall panel that is weakened by wide windows or roller doors. An example of the stress analysis results of a panel given in the above picture shows the high stress concentration areas that require additional reinforcing bars for its safe lifting.
The above photo shows, a complex shaped tilt-up wall panel being lifted by a crane using TiltPro clutches and strongbacks.
The above photo shows tilted panels supported by TiltPro braces.
For this case, the weights of the panels have to be taken into consideration when designing the safe propping of the panels because the panels are not standing vertically.
