Engineering Reports and Helix Micro Rebar for Code Officials

March 10, 12 p.m. EST

Join our Live Webinar on “Engineering Reports and Helix Micro Rebar for Code Officials”

Helix Steel has 15+ years of experience in providing better ways to build with structural concrete. Helix Micro Rebar, which is a one-inch twisted piece of steel, has been used in more than 40,000 projects and has been demonstrated to improve the resiliency, ductility and strength of concrete to resist concrete crack formation.

Using alternative reinforcements that have evaluation reports is the only trustworthy way to build with confidence and have specific information and design methodology for applications such as slabs, foundations, footings, walls and pavements. Spend an hour at this webinar with Luke Pinkerton, CEO and founder of Helix Steel, to learn about our ICC-ES evaluation report (ESR 3949) and engineering equivalency report (EER 3949), and how they help code officials understand, trust and confidently approve Helix Micro Rebar.

President & CEO

Luke Pinkerton, PE (ME) is the President, Chief Technology Officer, and founder of Helix Steel. He has a BS in engineering physics from Hope College, an MS in structural engineering from the University of Michigan, and an MBA from Georgia Institute of Technology.

Luke is Chair of the direct tension task group of ASTM Committee C09, Secretary of ACI 380 (structural plain concrete), consulting member of ACI 332 (residential construction), and associate member ACI 544 (fiber reinforced concrete), ACI 551 (tilt-up panels) and ACI 564 (3D printing). In his work, he has employed alternative flexural strength performance-based design approaches in thousands of structures since 2002. In 2018, he was awarded the Tilt Up Concrete Associations Robert Aiken Award for Innovation for his work in this area. He is committed to providing leadership within the concrete industry as well as to the advancement of discontinuous reinforcement technology.

About Helix Steel

Helix Steel is an innovative business based in Michigan that manufacturers and distributes the proprietary Helix® Micro Rebar® concrete reinforcement. The one-inch-long twisted steel pieces are mixed with concrete to create a long-lasting bond, preventing cracks before they even start, and are code-approved in many applications from warehouse slabs and highway bridges to tilt-up panels and ICF.

Proactive Concrete Reinforcement Technology

Saves You Time

Every 10,000 sq. ft. of rebar replaced with Micro Rebar® saves one full day of construction.

Saves You Money

Using Micro Rebar® allows contractors to simplify operations, dramatically reducing project costs.

A Superior Product

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