NEW: Design software HSC 2.0 for HALFEN HSC Stud Connector

Corbels, subsequently casted corbels and rebar anchorings at end bearings

The new design software for the HALFEN HSC Stud Connector is available now. It supports the design of concrete corbels, subsequently casted corbels and the anchoring of rebars at end bearings of beams and slabs. The design calculation is based on DIN EN 1992-1-1, DIN EN 1992-1-1 / NA and the DIBt approval Z-21.8-1973. This software is a useful planning and dimensioning tool for the application of HSC anchors and includes information about the reinforcement layout of the connection. The modular design and the graphics in 2D and 3D allow a safe and professional construction of reinforced concrete structures with HSC anchors.

New - Various improvements compared to the previous version.

Up to date - With the automatic or manual "Search update" feature your software is always up to date.

Modular - The separate modules for corbels, beams and slabs provide a clear, systematic and flexible user experience.

Interactive - The interactive user guidance detects incorrect input and provides helpful hints. This reduces the processing time to a minimum.

Clear - HSC anchors and stirrups are drawn to scale. The 3D graphics can easily be zoomed, swiveled, tilted and rotated by 360°. In addition, loads and dimensions are shown in 2D-graphics. The current status of the static proofs and the geometric boundary conditions considering the de-sign rules is constantly adapted to the input. The result print out shows each calculation step.

International - Free selection of German and English language versions.

With the new version of the design software you have a powerful tool at your disposal. Click here for a free software download!

New European Technical Assessment (ETA) for HALFEN HIT Balcony connections

HALFEN as a supplier for balcony connections has already had a (ETA) European Technical Approval which offers safety in planning and application in the whole of Europe, since 2013. As an award-winning innovation leader, winning a “TOP 100 Innovation award” in 2018 for the 2nd time, HALFEN continues to lead the way forward and to set new standards. We are pleased to inform you that the HALFEN HIT-HP/SP Insulated connections are approved in a new European Technical Assessment ETA-18/0189 since the 21st June 2018. Therefore you can now realize a larger variation of geometries for cantilevered (building) elements.

Your benefits in planning are:
  • Now also included: HIT-DD Elements for bi-directional moments and shear loads; connectors for parapets and corbels HIT-AT, HIT-OTX and HIT-FT
  • A decrease in thermal conductivity for small load bearing capacities as insulated connections with 2 (instead of 3 or 4) (CSB) Compression Shear Bearings are now approved
  • Improvement for expansion joints: For all standard elements without shear bars (for example HIT-MVX) or with shear bars <12mm (for example HIT-ZVX) the distance between max. allowable expansion joints is 13.5m (HP) and 23.0m (SP)
  • Easier calculation as verifying the concrete compression strut load bearing capacity 1/3 VRd,max is no longer necessary. This makes the load capacity tables for HIT-ZVXX and HIT-ZDX much simpler to use 
With these improvements your planning and designing are now much easier. You can find the new European Technical Assessment here. Take the time and check the details for yourself! The updated technical catalogue will also be available here shortly.

We will also gladly provide you with solutions specifically developed for your individual construction projects. Contact us at:, Phone: +49 2173 / 970-422 or -461.
