Helix, simply put, is a replacement for rebar.
In any application, from structural foundations, to slabs, suspended structural concrete, and paving, Helix will increase the strength and durability of concrete.
Helix Steel recently earned IAPMO’s Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) Evaluation Report ER-279 on Helix 5-25 Micro-Rebar. Helix Micro-Rebar 5-25 is the only discontinuous concrete reinforcement product in the world that now has a ISO certified design manual that can be followed to design vertical applications (such as walls) with Helix as the primary concrete reinforcement.
