COMPOSITE COLUMNS

COMPOSITE COLUMNS

KORE-FLEX™ Composite Columns are fabricated from hollow steel tube or pipe sections, shop-fitted with internal rebar cages, and filled with concrete after erection.  Windows are cut out of the columns where they connect to the beams, so that rebar can pass through the column and poured concrete can flow between column and beam.

KF Columns are fabricated to your specific project requirements. Diversakore’s advanced composite design produces columns that are:

  • Smaller than cast-in-place or precast columns, increasing usable space and reducing cost
  • Fire-resistant without need for additional fire-proofing
  • Exceptionally strong, while using less raw material
  • Custom fabricated shapes and sizes for maximum design flexibility
  • Designed to meet industry standards (ie. compression, bending, and fire requirements)
  • Composite design enables increased strength, stiffness, and crack control

ADVANCED COMPOSITE DESIGN

SYSTEMIC BENEFITS
By taking advantage of composite design benefits DIVERSAKORE is able to deliver columns that are: Smaller than cast in place or precast, Fire resistant without the need for additional fireproofing materials, exceptionally strong due to steel encased concrete and the combined strength of materials, Fast to install with either 1, 2, or 3 story lifts, Easy to reduce sizes in accordance with building height for space gain and cost reduction, Enhanced quality control for finish and placement.

COMPOSITE ADVANTAGE
Our composite columns are made up of hollow steel tube sections that are filled with concrete and additional rebar depending upon the specific project requirement. They are designed to meet the required compression, bending, and fire design requirements. In principle composite columns have been in use for decades and are a proven method to get more space with less building.

DIVERSAKORE is advancing the use of composite columns with methods for assembly that provide exceptionally fast construction sequences and help to minimize labor in the field. When combined with our VERSA:T:™ beams our customers gain the benefit of a stay-in-place forming system with composite strength and a small spatial footprint.  We standardize our sizes to get optimal costs and vary the inner elements to maximize strength and minimize size.
