KORE-FLEX COMPOSITE COLUMNS



Strong. Fast. Small.


By taking advantage of composite design benefits DIVERSAKORE is able to deliver columns that are: Smaller than cast in place or precast, Fire resistant without the need for additional fireproofing materials, Exceptionally strong due to steel encased concrete and the combined strength of materials, Fast to install with either 1, 2, 3 story lifts, Easy to reduce sizes in accordance with building height for space gain, and cost reduction, Enhanced quality control for finish, and placement.


Composite Advantage


Our composite columns are made up of hollow steel tube sections that are filled with concrete and additional rebar depending upon the specific project requirement.  They are designed to meet the required compression, bending, and fire design requirements. In principle composite columns have been in use for decades and are a proven method to get more space with less building.

DIVERSAKORE is advancing the use of composite columns with methods for assembly that provide exceptionally fast construction sequences and help to minimize labor in the field. When combined with our VERSA:T: beams our customers gain the benefit of a stay-in-place forming system with composite strength and a small spatial footprint.

We standardize our sizes to get optimal costs and vary the inner elements to maximize strength and minimize size.



Bearing-based connection designs that use seats and bearing flanges for fast and safe installation.
