Heavy Lifting and Structure Sliding

With over 30 years’ experience in lifting and handling structures, Freyssinet has been involved in numerous large-scale design and build projects.

Lifting and handling are complex operations that often influence the successful completion of a project. They demand absolute control over the stresses induced in the structure from the start to the end of the operation. Freyssinet has therefore developed a range of specific lifting and handling equipment, with real-time control and precision enabling the most stringent requirements to be met in terms of managing reactions and movements at the jacking points.

Freyssinet’s offering includes:
– Strand lifting,
– Lifting and jacking structures,
– Handling of structures,
– Structure sliding (Autoripage®, Autofonçage®, air pad sliding).
