The paper presents the problem of protection of reinforced concrete slab-column structures against the occurrence of a progressive collapse caused by punching in the support zone. The experimental studies and effects of recorded collapses indicate the necessity to use the appropriate reinforcement type, which will significantly increase the load capacity of the slab-column connection after punching. One of the ways to protect the structure is to use an integrity reinforcement as the most optimal method of strengthening. The contents explain the reasons for the application and description of issues related to this type of reinforcement. The conclusions from the use of this reinforcement based on the results of laboratory tests were presented.
