ShearTrack® provides an efficient, cost-effective alternative to shear links and other punching shear reinforcement alternatives, which can be time-consuming to install. Unlike regular shear links ShearTrack® can be used in slabs with an effective depth of less than 150 mm (6 in) making it ideal for use in post-tensioned flat slabs. It can also be used to counter bursting stresses around concentrated force such as the areas around post-tensioning anchorages.
By simplifying the reinforcement around columns, ShearTrack® reduces congestion to speed up concreting and placement of services and other embedments.
CCL ShearTrack® has undergone rigorous independent testing to attain US ICC-ES approval certifying ShearTrack® is in compliance with ACI, IBC and ASTM standards.
