The Helix Advantage
3" Exterior Wythe with 6x6 W2.9 Mesh
3" Exterior Wythe with 15 lbs/yd3 of Helix 5-25
BJ’s Wholesale Club is a membership-only warehouse club that relies on Helix Micro Rebar in its location expansion across the Eastern United States.
MER Engineers chose the reinforcement over the original design of 6×6 W2.9 mesh for the concrete tilt-up panels in new store locations. The switch to 15 lb/yd3 of Helix Micro Rebar resulted in concrete with 30% more durability, 221% more strength and 20% faster than if they had chosen mesh.
Special thanks to Columbus Builders Supply for managing the mixing and pouring operations, and also thanks to our partner Structural Sales for working with us on these projects.
A New Way to Save Time and Money in Warehouse Construction
The majority of warehouse contractors and developers who discover Helix Micro Rebar concrete reinforcement are sold on its time savings and money savings.
