Post-Tensioning Cable Maintenance & Repair

Post-Tensioning Cable Maintenance & Repair usePost-tensioning cable is often utilized in structures designed with long spans of concrete.  These steel cables, tensioned during original construction prior to removal of the forms, provide critical support to the concrete, both stabilizing the material and providing necessary weight distribution.  Damage to post tensioning cables can result from corrosion due to exposure of insufficiently protected tendons to water infiltration and chlorides from de-icing salts.  Damage can also occur when post tensioning cables are not taken into consideration prior to coring holes cutting into the associated slab.  In addition to performing necessary repairs to damaged post tensioning systems, Everclear Enterprises, Inc. provides inspection and maintenance service of these systems at regular intervals to ensure that potentially expensive repairs are identified and addressed before they become a more significant problem.
