Helix - Micro Rebar

Helix twist-detail

Superior to Standard Rebar

• More durable

• Higher crack resistance

• Produces concrete that's 4 times stronger with less than half the tonnage of steel 

• Improves shear strength - absorbs 200% more energy

• Prevents spalling due to corrosion because the Helix bars don't touch

• Reduces rebar congestion in multiple mat slabs - replaces or increases spacing of rebar

• Provides a non-continuous, multi-directional matrix of reinforcement

1" long twisted high carbon steel rods,

electroplated with zinc to resist rust.

• Is compatible with common curing compounds, dry shake or spray-on toppings

• Can be mixed in at the batch plant or on the job site

• Eliminates cutting, bending, placing & tying

• Eliminates fabricating cages for deep piers 

• And we'll provide engineering calculations at no charge

Uses:

• Structural Foundations

• Footings

• Slabs

• Structural Floors

• Structural Walls

• Beams/Columns/Piers

Savings - Time, Labor, Money

• Saves 10% to 30% of cost on your next concrete project

• Reduces or eliminates the time and expense of skilled labor to cut, bend & tie steel

• Weighs only one-quarter of the weight of standard rebar rods for the same job

• Shipped in 7"x7"x14", 45 pound boxes. 

       - No need for the expense of semi trucks, forklifts or cranes - even UPS can deliver 

• Makes  for a safer job site - reduces or eliminates:

       - the danger of vertical bars

       - the tripping hazard of standard rebar mats

For the Grandkids:
• Made with recycled American steel
• Reduces your carbon footprint by 33% compared to rebar, and helps you achieve your LEED goal
• Reduces the emissions of transport because it requires one-quarter the weight of standard rebar rods
