Pier 57 is a Seattle waterfront location favored by tourists and locals. It was lengthened to construct a 156 ft diameter Ferris wheel which opened in 2012. Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement was incorporated into the project design to fully replace the #6 rebar cages inside 53 piles.
Lower Dosages than Steel Fibers
Third-party testing has proved that Micro Rebar™ requires lower dosages than steel fibers.
Buy America Compliant
No need to apply for waivers to purchase foreign steel. Helix Micro Rebar™ is made in America, eliminating the need for waivers.
Allows for thinner sections and provides more fatigue resistance.
Better, Stronger & Longer Lasting
Helix Micro Rebar™ has led to better and longer-lasting concrete in roads and other infrastructure projects for more than a decade. Approved in more than a dozen states and proven in pavements, bridge deck overlays, tunnel linings, shotcrete, and precast bridge elements, Micro Rebar™ improves concrete’s flexural strength, allowing for thinner sections and providing more resistance to fatigue.
Helix is a proud member of the National Road Research Alliance and has participated in the development of partial depth repair methods to extend the life of both pavements and bridges.
Heavy-Duty Parking Lots
Helix has undergone testing up to 5 million equivalent single axle loads and has been proven in pavements for over a decade.
The corrosion resistance of Helix makes it ideal for exterior applications exposed to water, as well as de-icing agents
Helix’s greater flexural strength offers the ability to reduce thickness or increase fatigue life.
We have designed and deployed over 4.5 million square meters of Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforced concrete with 100% customer satisfaction.— Juan Aguilera VillarrealTecnor
