Technical Reference

Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement technology provides MORE MOR to every concrete application.

Technical Reference

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:

Increase Strength

When compared to Rebar, Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement can increase fatigue resistance by up to 300% and the flexural strength by up to 33%.

Stand Out

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.

Team Approach

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.

Code Approved

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.
