Prefabricated platforms modula® - the TT slab

The classic among HERING's platform systems is modula® - the TT slab. The structure of the platform slab resembles the Greek letter TT, as the name suggests.  The system consists of a monolithic platform slab on which webs formed at the factory are connected to the foundation. The platform slabs are then founded on individual foundations at their joints.

The main advantage of building with prefabricated platforms, especially with the TT slab, is the enormous amount of time saved on site. In an ideal scenario, 100 m of prefabricated platform can be installed in just 2 or 3 shifts.

modula® - TT slab: Advantages

  • Very few joints
  • Low maintenance costs
  • No damage due to fouling or destabilisation
  • No tripping hazards due to different settlements
  • Superstructures can be anchored without their own foundation
  • Guiding stripes for the blind and optional danger zone hatching integrated at the factory as tile or die casting
  • Very fast assembly and, thus, very minimal impact on the railway operation
  • Low resource consumption compared to conventional construction methods
  • Highest surface quality thanks to prefabrication in our own prefabrication plant specialising in high-quality concrete surfaces
  • Reduced extent of construction site logistics by reducing the use of bulk materials, individual building materials and small materials

Variety of applications

There are no limits to the variety of applications with modula® - the TT slab. The platform can be built as a free-standing outdoor platform (type 1) or as an outdoor platform that can be backfilled (type 1b). Island platforms can also be easily constructed with the TT slab. For this, either two backfillable type 1b elements are arranged mirrored opposite each other and the centre core is either paved conventionally or built with prefabricated elements as well.

The HERING modula® - the TT slab platform system is of the highest quality. In addition to the high-quality concrete surface and the clear contours, the system also impresses with the low number of joints. This ensures low maintenance costs and also promotes safety on the platform, as there is neither vegetation nor tripping hazards, which often occur over the years with conventional construction methods.

We are of course on hand to support you in the planning of your system platform projects. To achieve a project-related solution that is both economical and functional, we can provide you with planning aids such as sample plans and Revit component families in our digital planning catalogue. However, please do not hesitate to contact us in person if you have any questions or suggestions.

HERING sustainability

At HERING, we see ourselves as pioneers in the field of sustainability. As early as 1996, we were the first construction company in Germany to obtain EMAS certification. Every three years, we publish an environmental statement documenting our goals and how we have achieved them. Actually, for the first time, we published a sustainability report with an integrated environmental statement in accordance with EMAS - a logical next step in view of our ecological and social responsibility. It documents how we deal internally and externally with the issues that are essential to our future viability.
