Do the balcony floor slabs on the high-rise seaside condo I’m working on in Florida really need cathodic protection?

Selected Answers

From Michael Halliwell of Thurber Engineering Ltd. on November 30, 2020:
It will depend upon the design, but assuming that the design makes use of a cantilevered floor slab with metal supports, beams or reinforcement, then most likely yes. PaintSquare has shown us many examples in the past where cathodic protection was not used or failed, resulting in catastrophic slab failures, injuries and even deaths.
