External pre-stressing

External post-tensioning systems utilize high strength prestressing cables, strands and steel bars, and are used to increase or restore load-carrying capacity to a variety of structures. Post-tensioning is ideal for situations that require significant load capacity increases or deflection and/or crack control.

Our external post-tensioning systems for strengthening of existing structures feature the same proven post-tensioning products used in new construction. Our products have been used as the industry standard for post-tensioning. These systems have been used to repair, and strengthen bridges, buildings, parking structures, tanks and special structures.

UCDC designs these versatile systems to reduce tensile stresses, cracking and deflection. External P-T is an active strengthening system – which immediately engages in load sharing and transfer. By creating uplift or offset deflections, significant load capacity increases can be achieved while also minimizing and controlling crack formation.
