What is post tensioned concrete?

Post tensioned concrete is reinforced with steel cables or bars called tendons that are pulled and secured after, or ‘post,’ pouring of the concrete.

In some cases, post-tensioned slabs and beams are also ‘draped,’ meaning the tendons sag at the midpoint during installation and are then tensioned after the concrete is placed, achieving the highest tension possible on the cable. We often do post-tensioning in construction of high-rise buildings and car dealerships with large, open showrooms.
