As the world continues to increase its digital footprint and generate content, data centers (also known as server farms and data warehouses) are essential to North America’s technological infrastructure.

Engineers are entrusted to design these mammoth facilities and take on countless challenges to not only exceed the needs of the future but also do so with innovation and sustainability.

Helix Steel is well aware of its critical role in eco-conscious construction and continues to promote its evolutionary product, Helix Micro Rebar™, as an integral part of new North American data centers through a tiny twisted idea.

Innovating Data Centers With Structural Superiority

Conventional concrete reinforcement options often fall very short when it comes to meeting the requirements of data centers. In the case of rebar, concrete cracks are often the norm and installation is complex and time-consuming.

Helix Micro Rebar™ is a groundbreaking solution that literally inhibits groundbreaking like no other concrete reinforcement. Its tiny twisted design does far more to keep concrete from cracking, increasing fatigue resistance by up to 300% and flexural strength by up to 33%.

The Product to Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

Data centers consume vast amounts of energy, contributing significantly to carbon emissions. Reputable engineers reduce our carbon footprint by finding new ways to design and construct slabs, metal decks, foundations, duct banks, generator/transformer pads, and pavements.

Helix Micro Rebar™ aligns perfectly with these sustainability goals. By enhancing the strength and durability of concrete, Helix Micro Rebar™ reduces the amount of rebar and total steel required for reinforcement, resulting in lower carbon emissions and a smaller environmental footprint.

Accelerated Construction Timelines

Time is of the essence in the fast-paced world of data center development, whether it’s at the design stage or construction stage. Delays can translate into significant financial losses and missed opportunities. 

With Helix Micro Rebar™, engineers can expedite construction timelines while increasing the final product’s quality and removing safety hazards from rebar removal.

The weeks of rebar installation saved on a single building allow data centers to become operational sooner, thereby accelerating return on investment (ROI) for developers.

Throughout operations of the data center, owners will experience improved durability and concrete longevity, translating into long-term cost savings, further bolstering ROI.

The Concrete Reinforcement that Embraces Innovation for Data Centers

If you want to stay ahead of the curve in data center innovation, you need to constantly think of ways to improve every aspect of construction. 

Helix Micro Rebar™ is the industry shift to better strength, durability and sustainability. Sure you can continue to work with old, rusty rebar that accepts cracks and installation frustrations, or you could also do something different for the betterment of every aspect of your project. 

There has never been a better time to consider the alternative than today.
