NPS® Cls Plus Beam

The composite steel truss and concrete NPS® CLS Plus beam with prestressed concrete footing offers integrated fire resistance according to Eurocode 2-2 requirements. Recommended for fire-proof structures with large overloads and/or spans, particularly resistant to chemical-physical aggressive agents.

It differs from NPS® CLS Beam due to the presence of precompressed reinforcements, strands or cables, on the concrete footing.
Precompression guarantees the self-supporting aspect of the base slab, and contributes to the overall capacity of the beam, allowing truss size to be reduced, while deflecting to the beam itself.
Lower chords are inserted in precast class C32/40 concrete footing (UNI EN 206-1:2006), and equipped with reinforcement and surface reinforcement sized to support the heavy load of the ceiling on the NPS® Cls Plus Beam.

Product Details

Technical data

Metal structure Made of structural steel in conformity with UNI Standard UNI EN ISO 10025-2
Footing C32/40 or higher class concrete (UNI EN 206-1:2006) designed and equipped with reinforcement and surface reinforcement. Acts as a ceiling support and formwork for the casting formwork
Casting framework C25/30 when not otherwise noted by the designer
Self-supporting Yes. NPS® Cls Plus Beam bears itself and the ceiling that rests on it, already from the moment it is placed on the column (1st phase), already before the formwork cast (2nd phase)
Welding Using metal active gas welding (Process UNI EN ISO 4063-135)
Mechanical resistance to fire ( R ) Up to 240 minutes
Standards referenced In the 1st phase Eurocode 3 In the 2nd phase Eurocode 4 For anti-seismic Eurocode 8
Design Elaborated with the System calculation procedure conforming to the current Standard, and signed by a qualified technician.
Countable length Distance between theoretic supports used in the calculation

The use of the precompression technique makes NPS® CLS Plus Beam the ideal solution to adopt for thin structures with medium or large span (starting from 10 m), and in environments defined as "aggressive" or "very aggressive".
