Retrofit bed joint reinforcement pack containing 6mm x 7m stainless steel helical bars. The versatile 6mm reinforcing bar is the standard size rod used for most masonry repair and brick reinforcement applications
Thorhelical 6mm helical bars have a nominal tensile strength that is twice that of rebar, four times that of epoxy glass-fibre rods and seven times that of wound helix plate (Ref: BRE GBG62)
- Grade of Stainless Steel = 304 Austenetic
- Helical Bar Dimensions = 6mm diameter x 7000mm long
- Nominal Cross Section Area = 7.4 mm
- Ultimate Tensile Strength = 1050-1200N/mm2
Available in packs of 5, these 7 metre long helical bars are tied in a loop for ease of transportation. Some memory-coil may be retained when the reinforcement is un-coiled.
Read the BRE Report and Load / Span Tables to determine the load bearing capacity of a brick beam/ lintel formed with 6mm helical reinforcing bars. These BRE tables relate to genuine second generation patented 6mm helical bars used with WHO-60 grout. Do not use BRE tables if using other types of helibars, other bar diameters or alternative mortars/ resin.
