There is no on site bar straightening and virtually no restriction on bar length, so EC2 lap lengths are easily accommodated. A standard timber carrier allows multiple anchors to be installed simultaneously. Unlike re-bend systems where bar length, spacing and diameter are restricted by physical box dimensions, KSN Anchors provide total design flexibility.
Starter Bars are processed bars which are normally used to tie concrete walls to slabs or footings. Starter bars are usually made to tie reinforced masonry or concrete walls to slabs or footings, as designed by the engineer. They can be cut and bent to shape from standard deformed reinforcing bar.
Technical & Repair Mortars
During the final phase of the staircase’s reinforcement implementation, the lower rebars (in red color) are wired to their proper position with the distribution bars. The next phase includes the positioning of any necessary additional upper rebars followed by the placement of their distribu-tion bars. The stringers and the risers are placed last.
The development of the ThreadSURE® and JointLOCK® connection systems has been integral inproviding building solutions, approved by leading Engineers and Building Contractors throughout Australia. Formworkers and steelxers recommend our systems for their ease of installation. The systems provide effcient and superior structural integrity. ThreadSURE commissions extensive and ongoing product testing by independent NATA testing facilities:
Storm surge considerations
The X-Plug is a “patent pending” mechanical plug specifically designed and engineered to seal all types of formtie holes-voids. Thanks to the X-Plugs mechanical design tightening of the stainless steel nut causes an expansion of the EPDM rubber plug, increasing its diameter inside the formtie hole. This action simultaneously compresses the main…
SCS heavy-duty concrete square bars are manufactured in 1 metre lengthsa from 20mm up to 100mm. Fixing costs are greatly reduced as the bars can simply be laid on the formwork or ground floor sub-base prior to the loading of the reinforcement cage. Other applications include their use as kickers and formwork spacers.
Concrete is commonly perceived as a stone-like, monolithic and homogeneous material. In fact, it is a complex mix of cooked limestone, clay-like materials and a wide variety of rock or sandy aggregates. Limestone itself is a sedimentary rock composed of shells and coral, whose formation is influenced by many biological, geological and climatological factors.
Reinforcing steel is integral in building and construction where concrete is a key element and has been for centuries
Rectangular steel mesh is another common concrete reinforcement. The mesh is L-shaped and is commonly used in concrete slabs for pavements, panels, warehouse and industrial shed slabs, tilt-up slabs, driveways and patio slabs.
