Developer: YTL Corporation Bhd
Main Contractor: Syarikat Pembenaan Yeoh Tiong Lay Sdn Bhd
Product Supplied: Invisible Connections TSS41 along with Halfen Cast-In Channel, Moment® Coupler and Plakabox
The Requirement: To connect precast concrete staircases and walls without denting the appearance of architecture.
The TSS units were developed as a connection detail between precast landings or stairs and walls in stairways, and all that is required in the wall is a recess. The inner tube is retracted into the unit during erection, to be pulled out into the recess when the precast element is in the correct position. A safety stop will prevent the inner tube from excess protrusion. A rubber pad at the support in the wall is available in order to reduce the impact sound transfer from the stairs to the walls. It provides hidden connection, quick erection, and no site work is necessary with bolts, welding or mortar.
Other than TSS41, Halfen Cast-In Channels with ETA-16/0453 approval & CE Marking approvals were supplied for façade fixings, while Moment® Coupler and Plakabox were also used in the development for connection reinforcement.
