Join our Live Webinar on “Updated ICC-ES Report – Foundations and Slabs on Metal Decks”

The ICC-ES 3949 Report has been updated, and we’re here to help you make sense of the changes. Join us for a free live webinar June 9 at 12 PM. We’ll review all updates and how Helix® Micro Rebar® can be applied to slabs on metal on deck to add value to every project. 

Helix® Micro Rebar® is a smart choice for residential, commercial, and infrastructure applications. We can provide you with research reports with assumptions for design, conditions of use, plan views, details for different types of footing and dosage. They also provide equations to calculate capacities, direct tension testing, and more. Calculations for alternative requirements are also available.

About Helix Steel

Helix Steel is an innovative business based in Michigan that manufactures 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.

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%.
