The BINDAX bendable reinforcement system is composed of a profile of galvanised sheet steel, in which ribbed reinforcement bars are embedded. On one side of the profile, the reinforcement bars are bent towards it and covered by protective synthetic tape.
The BINDAX rail is nailed to the formwork, on the side from which the first section shall be concreted, placing the profiles in such a say so that the bent parts of the reinforcement bars remained uncovered. After concreting the first section, and after removal of the formwork, the tape is removed from the profiles, the bent reinforcement bar parts are bent away, and the second section is concreted.
The BINDAX bendable reinforcement system allows easy connection of reinforced concrete components, concreted during various construction phases. The system finds use during joining of walls with each other, ceilings with walls, stair landings, balconies, consoles, etc. at a later construction stage. This allows decisive time savings for the investment, and the reduction of the system formwork amount and of the system formwork component lease time (less complicated shapes).
