Three-Dimensional, Proactive Concrete Reinforcement Technology

Presenter: Luke Pinkerton - PE, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Helix Steel
Date and time: Saturday, September 30 - 11:00a to 12:00p

Helix Steel is the manufacturer of Twisted Steel Micro Rebar (TSMR), a 3 dimensional concrete reinforcement technology that quantifiably increases shear strength, durability and ductility while providing industry leading pre-crack capabilities. Simply put, by using TSMR, you are protecting your investment in concrete. At 4 times the tensile strength of rebar and one-third the weight, TSMR enables a tremendous reduction in overall carbon footprint and provides valuable LEED credits.

Since 2003, TSMR has been used in applications ranging from structural foundations, walls, and slabs to suspended structural concrete, paving and tunnels. In 2012, Helix Steel achieved IAPMO’s Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) Evaluation Report ER-279 on Helix Steel 5-25. Helix Steel 5-25 is the only discontinuous concrete reinforcement product in the world with an ISO certified design manual that can be followed to design vertical applications (such as walls) with Helix Steel as the primary concrete reinforcement.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
