Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC — a company that develops integrated project design and construction technology solutions for the site-cast precast (tilt-up) concrete industry — has released a free web-based tool for quick preliminary panel thickness and reinforcing estimates.

The tool works by simply entering the panel width, height, thickness, design wind speed/exposure and opening width for your project. An estimate of the reinforcing steel required will be provided measured in pounds per square-foot based on the gross panel area. The tool was developed using Tilt-Werks technology.

Tilt-Werks is the only tilt-up application that integrates structural engineering design with the generation of drawings, BIM data, material quantities and cost estimates in one package. As a fully integrated resource, Tilt-Werks expedites the construction of tilt-up projects from preliminary design through structural engineering, preparation of shop drawings and continues on to material take-offs, project cost estimates and integration with industry suppliers.

“Created to help owners, developers and contractors determine panel thickness and estimate the amount of reinforcing steel required for a tilt-up panel, this free online tool is a great resource for both seasoned tilt-up construction professionals and those that are new to the industry,” said Joe Steinbicker, President of Tilt-Up Design Systems. “It helps take some of the guess work out of the tilt-up estimating process. Users can check various panel thicknesses to determine optimum reinforcing.”
