Types of Assembly
The Meadow Burke Rapid-Lok© Connection Plate System eliminates many field welding operations with its unique and thoughtful design. Each System connection has three basic parts: an embed plate, a void former and the bearing angle. Many sizes are available to meet most requirements and special sizes and/or configurations are available on special order. All connections are in conformance to recommendations set forth in the Precast Concrete Institute (PCI) Design Handbook, 6th Edition.
The Bearing Angle Assembly:
Rapid-Lok assembly, consisting of an Embed Plate and a Bearing Angle.
The Bearing Corbel Assembly:
The newest Rapid-Lok Assembly is used to improve the aesthetics, while being capable of reaching a 2-hour fire rating if required. The assembly consists of an Embed Plate and a Bearing Corbel.
Concrete Corbel “Cast-In-Place” Locking Stud Option:
Bearing Angles can be ordered with optional factory installed locking studs, attached to the outside face of the angle, as shown. To create the concrete corbel look, simply place the special Rapid-Lok in a mold and pour the desired concrete mix. This creates a concrete corbel that is hard to differentiate from one poured monolithically, with the attachment ease and efficiencies that the Rapid-Lok Connection System provides.
