Jan 2018 : Precaster: Insert Groutec connections in AutoCAD, Tekla, Revit

Are you familiar with the Groutec sleeve system? Groutec is Dextra main precast connection solution. It consists of a sleeve fixed onto the reinforcement inside the precast element thanks to a threaded connection.

At the construction site, connection between two precast elements is achieved by injecting non-proprietary grout in the coupler's cavity, removing all need for an in-situ wet joint between.
