Home > Companies > MAX FRANK Ltd > Shearail

Prefabricated punching shear solution comprising ribbed reinforcing bars with forged heads and steel flat rails which increases the shear resistance of a slab and safely transfers the shear load from the slab to the column. Supplied to site as ready-made rails, instead of individual links or studs, it offers the convenience, speed and quality assurance of a prefabricated system and is easily designed and detailed.

Shearail is manufactured from UK CARES approved materials under a CARES certified BS EN ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Management System, providing assurance that the material is from a traceable source and has been independently tested and verified for use in concrete floors in accordance with appropriate BS and BS EN standards.
