16.01.2019 - With more load capacity: The punching shear reinforcement for foundations

Using the newly developed HALFEN HDB-Z, foundations and foundation
slabs can now be reinforced even more efficiently to prevent
punching shear failure. Due to its shape, which has been specially
designed and adapted for typical load paths in foundations, and
the multiple, low-slip anchorages, the HDB-Z achieves a significant
increase in load-bearing capacity in comparison to conventional
punching shear reinforcement: 100 % higher load capacity or 40 %
less foundation height!

• DIBt (German Centre of Competence for Construction) General
building approval no. Z-15.1-330
• For foundation slabs and single foundations with a thickness
from 230 mm in concrete strength class C12/15 and higher
• The shape of the HDB ensures it remains firmly upright and
stable between the reinforcement layers

15.01.2019 - The HTU Profiled sheet fixing channel

The HALFEN HTU Channels are ideal for simple fixing of all types of profiled metal sheets or sandwich panels – using self-tapping screws. Thanks to its innovative shape and profiling, the new, optimized generation of channels are self-anchoring and are cast completely into the concrete cover.
(Available from June 2019)

14.01.2019 - New HVG VERSOGRID Installation grid

The versatile fixing system
Whether in exhibition halls, train stations and airports or other large indoor venues with fluctuating public traffic, suspension systems must be designed for maximum flexibility and adaptability. Roof and ceiling elements — beams, girders, existing building services or unevenness in the main building structure — often make installation difficult when large display screens or panels, loudspeakers or spotlights or other objects and paraphernalia need to be installed.

HALFEN VERSOGRID provides an innovative solution: The installation grid creates a level plane below concrete roofs and steel girder structures —
requires minimal time and installation work.

The individual components with a weight of only 5.5 kg/m are connected and secured without requiring any tools. The double slot profile allows load-bearing elements to be fixed under the grid using suspension ring bolts, and cable ducts or other media supply components to be fixed on top of the grid structure. Individual profile elements are easily and quickly removed and replaced. This allows necessary repairs, e.g. to media supply lines to be carried out quickly and efficiently. The large selection of RAL colours for the powder coating also ensures a unique and overall very aesthetic design.

14.01.2019 - New software version HDB 13.20 for punching shear reinforcement

The latest version of the proven HDB dimensioning software is now available. The current software version now includes new features:
 NEW: The angle of inclination of the slab edges can be varied so that complex slab geometries can be recalculated
 NEW: Alternative design of foundation slabs and single foundations with HDB anchor rails or with the new HDB-Z possible

HDB-Z - The new punching shear reinforcement for the economic design of floor slabs and single foundations according to DIBt approval Z-15.1-330
Already with the proven HDB anchor rail a higher resistance to puncture failure can be achieved. With the new HDB-Z, an even higher increase in load capacity for foundation slabs and foundations can be achieved. The up to 100 % higher load capacity compared to a foundation without punching shear reinforcement can also be used to reduce the thickness of the foundations significantly. This in turn saves excavation, concrete and construction time.

16.08.2018 - 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!

20.02.2017 - HALFEN HIT Insulated connection and HALFEN Cast-in channels receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

An EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration) provides transparent and comparable ecological data which helps to evaluate the sustainability of a building. Already during the planning phase the data provided here is of great significance for architects and planners. The data provided also helps to ensure the high demands on the environmental performance of the building are met.

EPDs form the data basis for an environmental building assessment in accordance with DIN EN 15978. The declarations are internationally coordinated; they are based on international standards (ISO 14025; ISO 14040ff) – as well as on European DIN EN 15804.

The EPD for the HALFEN HIT-HP MVX-0805-20-100 balcony connection and HALFEN Cast-in channels HTA-CE and HZA was presented by the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) during the BAU 2017 Trade fair.

16.01.2017 - HALFEN sets new standards with the HTA-CE Plus!

The classic anchor channel is now ready for a leap in its evolution: Thanks to outstanding engineering improvements and multiple optimized details  a new, more efficient HALFEN channel is now available.

The innovative hot-rolled HALFEN HTA-CE plus channels provide you the following benefits:
  • Due to the new, higher load range more applications can be covered with the new HTA-CE 40/22P and HTA-CE 50/30P channels. This reduces the risk of channel and bolt confusion on your construction site and in your precast plant.
  • When selecting the new HTA-CE 40/22P for higher loads, the HS 40/22 bolt is used. In comparison to previous solutions using the HTA-CE 50/30 you also reduce costs and the number of different bolts that are required on construction site.
  • With the new plus channels you can now select smaller profiles for the same loads requirements. The HALFEN channel with a height of only 23 mm (HTA-CE 40/22P) and 30mm (HTA-CE 50/30P) is almost always installed completely in the required concrete cover. This allows more efficiency to your reinforcement planning.
  • For more ambitious constructions the curved HTA-CE-CS, HALFEN channel pairs, corner elements and customized elements are available as options. HALFEN bolts and the complete portfolio are available in the current B17.1-E technical catalogue.
The new HTA-CE 40/22P and HTA-CE 50/30P channel profiles are approved with ETA-16/0453 for use in Europe and are CE marked. They can be easily and efficiently calculated using the HALFEN HTA software. After selecting a HALFEN channel and a suitable bolt the calculation results can be easily copied in a list and saved in a file. Click here to download the current HTA software.

You also find our HALFEN channels as (Tekla-) building element components in BIM libraries and as CAD drawings in the HALFEN PARTcommunity.
