Project Summary


Colorado Precast, now part of Old Castle Precast, produces 15,500-gallon vaults. They were originally designed with conventional rebar and mesh. Each tank requires about 4,500 lb of rebar and mesh and 90 hours of labor to prepare, tie and install the steel reinforcement. The Helix® reinforcement design was able to reduce this to only 810 lb. of steel.
The combined material and labor savings allowed Colorado Precast to produce higher performing and higher quality products for its customers while being more cost-effective and providing a more efficient and safer manufacturing operations.
