PLANBAR

PLANBAR is the comprehensive solution for high-quality, industrialised precast parts design. From series production right up to complex architectural elements and specialist parts. Quick, efficient, error-free.

  • Unique synthesis for model-based and drawing-based working, 2D and 3D
  • Reliable data provision for production
  • Efficient design of highly complex components
  • Consistent data transfer
  • Automated creation of Shop Drawings

 

Efficient CAD Drawing is our Strength

PLANBAR is the CAD solution specifically for the precast concrete industry. 

 

PLANBAR combines the advantages of three-dimensional models and excellent drawing preparation. This way, you can work depending on project and status, as required by your personal workflow. You work in 2D and generate 3D!

 

 

Regardless of whether it is slabs, walls or façades - PLANBAR supports you with all planar precast parts using well thought-out functions and specialist automation.

 

 

For the efficient design of complex precast parts, we have specifically developed the iParts® module. On the one hand, through the use of parameterised components, PLANBAR achieves the highest efficiency. On the other hand, through the acquisition of architectural components or freely modelled 3D elements, PLANBAR offers the utmost flexibility.

 

 

The reinforcement is a highlight in PLANBAR. Depending on your reinforcement specifications, PLANBAR automatically generates the reinforcement. This guarantees a seamless interaction between statics, CAD and robots.

 

 

PLANBAR offers an ideal and unique synthesis of model- and drawing- oriented work. Because the Elementplan module solves the task of automatically creating production documents from a model with geometry, reinforcement, fixtures and a lot more. This means that you can work on the drawing in 2D and that the 3D model is automatically adjusted in the background, whereby PLANBAR naturally ensures that the model and drawing remain consistent. After all, production documents are still of great importance, this is why our customers appreciate our time-tested software solution.

 

 

PLANBAR is open for other data formats and systems. Through comprehensive interfaces, we enable the import and export of drawings and data in various formats (DXF, DWG, PDF, IFC, UNI, PXML etc.)

The iParts module combines the speed of 2D with the quality of 3D in working with structural precast parts. Parameterised elements guarantee highest efficiency, the adoption of architectural elements or free modeling of 3D elements ensure maximum flexibility.

Thus, you can quickly and easily design any complex elements with iParts!

  • Simple acquisition of 3D already existing geometries
  • Parameterised, interactive entry
  • Free modelling of columns, beams, foundations, stairs
  • 3D reinforcement without a copy of the component
  • Master print technology

Wall Systems

Double Wall

The double wall is a semi-precast wall system with longitudinal and transverse reinforcement in both layers and connection through the girders. After installation, the double wall is poured with in-situ concrete on the construction site.

 

Solid Wall

The solid wall is a fully pre-fabricated component. The wall is manufactured in a single production cycle and includes, as required, one or two layers of reinforcement. A filling with in-situ concrete on site is not necessary.

Insulated Wall

The thermal wall is a hybrid wall construction consisting of 2 concrete layers that are interconnected by lattice girders or thermal anchors. Between the 2 shells a layer of insu- lation is installed. The gap b is filled with in-situ concrete.

Sandwich Wall

The sandwich panel is an insulated solid wall construction consisting of two reinforced concrete layers with intermediate insulation. The co- nnection of the two shells of the Sandwich wall takes place by fasteners.

Double Wall

The double wall is a semi-precast wall system with longitudinal and transverse reinforcement in both layers and connection through the girders. After installation, the double wall is poured with in-situ concrete on the construction site.

 

Solid Wall

The solid wall is a fully pre-fabricated component. The wall is manufactured in a single production cycle and includes, as required, one or two layers of reinforcement. A filling with in-situ concrete on site is not necessary.

Slab Systems

Filigree Slab

The filigree slab is a hybrid, semi-finished slab construction with lattice girders. Depending on the concrete covering and reinforcement, the slab has a thickness of 5-8 centimeter. The filigree slab is filled with in-situ concrete on the construction site.

Solid Slab

The solid slab is a fully pre-fabricated slab construction with longitudinal and transverse reinforcement. Solid Slabs can be designed and produced with mild reinforcing or by adding prestressing strands. It is made of concrete or reinforced concrete.

Hollowcore Slab

Hollow core slabs have longitudinally continuous cavities. A weight re- duction results on the one hand from the use of lightweight concrete, on the other hand from the hollow chambers. The guarantee high per- formance in design and production.

Bubbledeck

The BubbleDeck is a two-axis hybrid slab construction with hollow spheres saving mass and weight in com- parison to solid slab structu- res. Hollow plastic balls are inserted into the slab and held in place by reinforcing steel. 

TT-Plate

The TT plate is a structural precast part and is used mainly in industrial construction for large loads and / or spans. The cross-section resembles two assembled T-profiles. Mostly, the TT-ceiling finds its use as a ceiling element, in some buildings.

Filigree Slab

The filigree slab is a hybrid, semi-finished slab construction with lattice girders. Depending on the concrete covering and reinforcement, the slab has a thickness of 5-8 centimeter. The filigree slab is filled with in-situ concrete on the construction site.
