Installation

  • Normally, from lifting to fixing, a multi-storey NPS® column is installed in 8 minutes with a team of three workers and a crane operator.
  • Before installing the columns, prepare the anchor bolts fixed to the support surface, laid using the templates supplied according to the axes and dimensions of the project.
  • Screw the lower nuts with the washers on them up to the required height.
  • Lift the column with the crane and position it by inserting it on the anchor bolts placed at the base of the project support surface.
  • With the lifting device in traction, tighten all nuts, preceded by their washers.
  • Once the fixing to the base is assured and the base verticality is guaranteed, loosen the device.
  • Pull the release lanyard until the pin is completely out of the hole or window in the column.
  • At this point the final plumbing is completed.
  • The pillar base is then fastened with anti-shrinkage pourable mortar. The thickness is given by the distance between the laying surface and the base plate of the pillar itself.
  • We then move on to the integrative casting of the column.
