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!

27.11.2017 - New catalogue: HALFEN Tunnelling

Tunnels are very challenging civil engineering projects with a prospective service life of 100 years or more, and therefore the highest standards for installation of safety relevant fixing are required in their construction.

Our new tunnel catalogue provides an overview of the wide range of HALFEN products used worldwide for fixing in tunnel construction that meet these standards.

The catalogue illustrates examples from Europe, the USA and China of applications in railway tunnels, in road tunnels and in utility service projects.
The first part of the catalogue is a general overview of products to provide easy orientation of the applications followed with a compilation of technical information for the illustrated products.

If you have any questions or require individual consultation for a project, please contact our tunnel team at: kap.tunnel@halfen.com.

04.09.2017 - HALFEN HIT Insulated Connections: Be on the safe side

Structural fire protection is a complex issue that should not to be neglected. Interpretation of the regulations and their correct application requires comprehensive know-how.

An uncomplicated and above all a reliable solution is available for balcony connections. Class A1 rock wool material is used in all HALFEN Insulated HIT-HP and HIT-SP connection elements for energy-efficiency, and also for fire protection. Consequently, HIT elements meet the highest fire resistance REI 120 classification as standard.

Learn more about the benefits in the new HIT flyer.

20.03.2017 - HALFEN Certificate DNV-GL for ship-building and offshore industries


Please be informed the renewed Germanischer Lloyd Type Examination Certificate accepting hot and some cold-rolled HM/HZM/HL channels in the ship-building and offshore industries, calculated under EC3 and with manufacturing control according to EN 1090, approved for applications subject to vibration, is now available on the HALFEN website.

16.01.2017 - HALFEN setter en ny standard med HTA Pluss


Den klassiske ankerskinnen tar et steg videre. Takket være utvikling og optimalisering kan vi nå avdekke nye HALFEN Pluss skinner med høyere ytelse. 


Den innovative HALFEN HTA-CE Pluss skinnen gir deg følgende fordeler: 
  • Takket være høyere lastkapasitet spenner bruken av HTA-CE 40/22P og HTA-CE 50/30P bredere. Dette minimerer risikoen for bruk av feil type skinne på byggeplass eller i fabrikken. 
  • HS 40/22 bolter brukes sammen med HTA-CE 40/22P i tilfeller der man tildligere måtte bruke HTA-CE 50/30. Dette er med på redusere kostnader. 
  • Med den nye Pluss skinnen kan du nå bruke en fysisk mindre skinne med samme høye kapasitet. Dette gir bedre utnyttelse og mulighet til å optimalisere armeringen. 
  • Buede skinner til bruk i tunnel og andre spesialløsninger er tilgjengelig. 

HTA-CE 40/22P og HTA-CE 50/30P er godkjent iht. ETA-16/0453 og CE-merket.
Trykk her for å laste ned HTA programvaren for bruk til dimensjonering. 

Du kan også finne HALFEN skinner i vår BIM bibliotek, samt at CAD tegninger er tilgjengelig gjennom HALFEN PARTcommunity.

12.01.2017 - HEK Elementforankring - Den praktiske løsningen for rask og enkel elementmontasje


Det er med glede vi presenterer vårt nye produkt HEK elementforankring. 
En innovativ og allsidig løsning for sammenføying av prefabrikerte elementer.

Montasjen av elementene på byggeplass gjøres ved hjelp av en skrukobling mellom HEK og en passende forankringshylse. Koblingen kan belastes fullt ut umiddelbart etter montasje uten hensyn til herdetid eller lignende. En tids- og kostnadsbesparende løsning. 

HEK kan kombineres med et stort utvalg forankringer, som f.eks. DEMU T-FIXX. På denne måten er løsningen svært fleksibel og kan brukes sammen med de aller fleste betongelementer.

They include both native formats such as AutoCAD, AutoDesk Revit, Nemetschek Allplan and Sketchup as well as interchange formats such as STEP, IGES and PDF. Obviously, the IFC format needed for BIM applications is supported directly.

The required element drawings can optionally be downloaded to a computer, sent as e-mail or directly be opened to a running CAD system.

The HALFEN PARTcommunity libraries will continuously be updated, so that CAD drawings are available for the complete HALFEN product range in the future.
