Product Overview

Advantages of one piece arm

  • Less joints means a more rigid balcony. Not having a stub, increases rigidity.
  • Reduces cost and programme on site as no additional sections manufactured or installed, one piece arm can be factory assembled to anchor and cast-in as one complete piece.
  • Can be used to support scaffold boards if positioned at approx. top of slab, however they are not designed to take scaffold loadings.

Considerations for one piece arms

  • Large sections means consideration needs to be given to edge protection and form work during the concrete casting stage
  • One piece arms typically project from the façade for the full projection of the balcony so can be prohibitive to a mast climber access strategy
  • If using system scaffold or arrangements at circa 2m brick lifts, consider whether arms will pose a potential obstruction to scaffold working area.
