HALFEN HDB Shear rail

The HDB elements with double headed studs, welded to a spacer bar, are used as punching shear reinforcement in concrete slabs and foundations. HALFEN HDB Shear rails are supplied as system elements with 4 to 10 double headed studs and as 2-stud and 3-stud elements, which can be combined as required.

HDB-Z Punching shear reinforcement for foundation slabs and pad foundations

The HALFEN HDB-Z Punching shear reinforcement now allows an even more efficient design of foundation slabs and pad foundations against punching shear failure. Due to the specially designed shape and multiple low-slip anchorage points in the concrete, a component reinforced with HDB-Z has up to double the load-bearing capacity than a foundation with no punching shear reinforcement.

HDB Shear rail
  • Higher load capacity than conventional stirrup reinforcement
  • HDB is also suitable for use in semi-precast elements
  • Standardized delivery program with short delivery times, standard elements are available from stock
  • Efficient and user-friendly software
  • Simple and quick installation even after the upper reinforcement has been installed
  • Reduction in construction time
HDB-Z Punching shear reinforcement for foundations
  • Height reduction of in-situ cast concrete and precast foundation elements
  • Savings in excavation, in construction, in material and in time 
  • Easy installation between the reinforcement layers
  • Stays firmly fixed in the formwork prior to pouring the concrete
