Dreading an upcoming concrete slab placement project should never happen, but it’s a reality every contractor faces. And rightfully so! This task is often headache-inducing with many complexities: heaps of rusty rebar, weeks spent laying out steel, back-breaking labor and expensive boom pumps.

Rebar causes headaches, yet many contractors, developers and even engineers are hesitant to try proven alternatives, simply because they are different. 

Recessions Require Innovative Thinking 

When the economy falters and you need to think faster, smarter and more economically than ever before, the alternative is exactly what you need. Sure, you can consider plastic fibers, but if you want a solution that reduces cracks with a patented twisted design to keep concrete together while also making placement easier on your crew, you have one choice: Helix Micro Rebar

Helix Steel’s revolutionary concrete reinforcement can save one day of construction for every 10,000 square feet (929 square meters) of rebar replaced with Helix Micro Rebar reinforcement.

Here are some prime examples of warehouse projects that have trusted the one-inch all-steel Helix Micro Rebar and reaped the financial rewards by eliminating steel, shortening schedules and placing concrete faster.
