SPECIFYING HELIX STEEL
Specifying Helix® steel reinforcement is simple. Here you will find the necessary CSI formatted specification template. Also available are partially completed substitution forms for during the bidding process and after. Add Helix® reinforcement to the drawings in a note, do not remove the original design. This gives the contractor and building official the opportunity to choose.
The note should say If you are allowed to use proprietary specifications: “use the original reinforcement shown in the drawing or Helix® 5-25 at x lb/yd3 designed and installed in accordance with Uniform Evaluation Report 0279”. Or if you are not allowed to have proprietary specifications: “use the original reinforcement shown in the drawing or Twisted Steel Micro-Rebar™ reinforcement at x lb/yd3 designed of a product certified by an ISO Guide 65 accredited reviewer to meet Uniform Evaluation Criteria 015”.
