Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement technology provides MORE MOR to every concrete application.
Specifying Helix Steel
Specifying Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement is simple. Here you will find the necessary CSI formatted specification template.
Uniform Evaluation Services
Uniform Evaluation Services provides assurance for end users and building regulators that the code, which sets the bar for building component acceptability, has been satisfied.
Simplified Design with ICC-ES
Helix Steel and ICC-ES have developed a design that uses linear elastic design along with simple inexpensive flexural testing (ASTM C78).
Pre-Engineered Residential Designs with ICC-ES
Helix Steel and ICC-ES have developed an Equivalency Evaluation Report with pre-approved plans for using Helix Micro Rebar® in constructing single- and two-family homes.
Helix Steel has created this web application to help customers identify dosage rates for Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement.
Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement’s combination of high tensile steel and superior anchorage provided by its patented twisted geometry increases concretes tensile strength, modulus of rupture and splitting tensile strength. Unlike rebar, mesh and fibers, Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement works before the concrete fails and is the only reinforcement approved to replace structural reinforcement in concrete with a simple design method. In fact, you can be designing with Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement, providing your clients with more value, in 45 minutes or less. See the online training courses to start now.
Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement offers the following advantages:
When compared to Rebar, Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement can increase fatigue resistance by up to 300% and the flexural strength by up to 33%.
Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement doesn’t just meet code and reduce project costs, it’s also easier to use than rebar and mesh — allowing engineers to set themselves apart with clients.
From design to field support, when you work with Helix Steel our entire team — including sales and in-house engineers — provides live support during the life of your project.
Producing the first concrete fiber with code approval for structural applications, Helix Steel has years of experience and no structural failures. Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement also meets ACI, and the IBC and IRC codes through its two evaluation service reports from ICC-ES ESR-3949 and IAPMO-ES UES-0279.
Proven in the Field
With hundreds of millions of square feet and tens of thousands of successful structures, Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement has been proven in the field for over a decade. Helix Steel has many happy customers who can attest to our advantages in a wide range of applications.
Dedicated to Advancing the Concrete Industry
Advancing not just our company, but the concrete industry as a whole, is a key part of our mission statement. To that end, Helix Steel is actively involved in committees at ASTM, ACI, NRRA, NPCA and NRMCA, we fund research at various American universities and we are dedicated to looking beyond the limits of concrete to continually make the material better, safer and more efficient.
