Case Study
Max Frank Ltd. supplied Shearail® punching shear reinforcement to the new 12-storey 'groundscraper'.

Max Frank worked closely with the Contractor and Structural Engineers. Max Frank's technical design engineer's easily converted a shear link specification with Shearail® to comply with the original design.

Numerous independent tests have demonstrated the stud heads form positive end anchorage flush with the top layer of tension reinforcement. Whereas the anchorage of the links is based mainly on bond, the improved end anchorage of the stud controls the shear cracks and enhances the aggregate interlock.
