Are you installing your rebars correctly?
Compliant Designs | Approved Products | Safe and Reliable Installation – One Stop Solution
Post-installed rebar can be used to build most connections on site – for instance, walls, slabs, beams, foundations or supporting columns. The full process can be tedious and time consuming but you can overcome these challenges with our end-to-end solutions for a safer and more reliable installation.
WHAT IS POST-INSTALLED REBAR?
Post-installed rebars are used to connect two concrete members and is an essential application in building construction and infrastructure projects. Rebars become part of the structural system and must be designed as carefully as the entire structure. While European Technical Approvals prove that in basic load situations, post-installed rebars behave like cast-in bars, number of differences needs to be considered in special design situations such as fire or load cases where hooks or bends would be required for cast-in anchorages. The task of structural rebars is to take tensile loads and since concrete failure is always brittle, reinforced concrete design assumes that concrete has no tensile strength. Therefore despite the application, all rebar applications must be designed.
Importance of Design
Be ETA Compliant, Be safety compliant and be local rules compliant. Specification notes can be plugged into your rebar specification to help ensure code compliance.
Elements such as hole cleaning, concrete cover, roughening of concrete, injection accessories and drilling aids have direct impact on quality of installation which ensures safety of connection.
