The prefabricated walls produced by Betoncablo S.p.a. support and contain the in building road embankments, retaining walls, counterscarp walls, bridge abutments, abutment piers for artificial tunnels and noise barriers. They are built in series, sized according to design needs and calculated for the required loads.
MUROMAT consists of a vertical panel in prefabricated vibrated reinforced concrete with modular width that has two vertical full height buttresses (stiffening ribs) on the side facing the ground. The exposed side is normally made with smooth finish on the metal formwork surface, on rubber matrices, or is covered with stone or washed river gravel.
The benefits gained in using MUROMAT are countless: they simplify work site processes and considerably reduce overall time and costs, resulting in risks associated with safety being reduced.
The preparation work required of the Customer are very modest and are limited to the prior building of a simple reinforced concrete support surface. There are also less earthwork excavations owing to the compactness of the foundations configurable with MUROMAT, without the use of tie rods. The installation system is then particularly quick thanks to the systems adopted for lifting the single elements to be aligned in a sequence and arranging them vertically.
