When a new warehouse was needed in Woodstock ON, Tilt Wall Ontario was selected to not only meet the schedule expectations for the 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse, but also to help reduce the sound of the machines running due to residential houses nearby.
About the Webinar
With more than 2,000 tilt-up panels erected, Helix® Micro Rebar® reinforcement already has proven utility and value in tilt-up construction. This webinar will show you how Helix Micro Rebar has been implemented as well as emerging methods that could reduce your pre-pour and erection preparation time in half and increase the flexural strength of your panels.
This webinar will be led by Helix Steel’s Engineering Manager Justin Idalski, who will walk you through the fine details of the benefits of Helix Micro Rebar for tilt-up construction.
Every webinar attendee will receive an official Certificate of Completion.

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%.
Copper Wire Stripper Warehouse
Lakeland Developments Warehouse
The Lakeland Developments Warehousing Project was a prime example of the speed of tilt-up construction. By utilizing Helix 5-25, panel construction was completed in about 1 month with panel erection occurring in just over 8 hours.
Toronto District Christian High School
Helix Micro Rebar was instrumental for the insulated tilt-up panels in the school’s large expansion project.
The exterior wythe of non-composite insulated tilt-up panels in this 100,000-square-foot multi-tenant industrial warehouse was built using Helix Micro Rebar.
