The PFEIFER Hybridbeam® composite beam is a prefabricated load-bearing element that is used as a flat beam to create slim floors - integrated ceilings with a low construction height. The standard design of the PFEIFER Hybridbeam® is flush with the floor slab. The beam is a combination of two different materials - steel and concrete. The steel part takes on the tensile stresses, while the concrete part takes over the compressive stresses, and both are connected with each other with headed studs welded to the internal steel surfaces. All of this comes together to ensure an extremely high strength parameter of the hybrid composite.
There are three types of PFEIFER Hybridbeam® available - intermediate beams (BHM), edge beams (BHR) and special beams (BHS), each in eighteen cross-section sizes. It is also possible to make a non-standard beam.
