Roll-out steel reinforcement means on-time Academy
Hy-Ten (supplier of Bamtec)
Bamtec rollout concrete reinforcement system
Barnfield South Academy and Barnfield West Academy completed on-time using Hy-Ten's innovative roll-out concrete reinforcement system, Bamtec, to speed concrete floor construction.
Contractor, Wates Construction used the Bamtec system for concrete floor reinforcement.
Using pre-fabricated 'carpets' of roll-out steel reinforcement, rather than manually placed re-bar, saves substantially the time required for steel fixing and enables each floor to be set-up for concrete pouring.
The Bamtec system eliminates the need for large teams of experienced reinforcement steel fixers.
There are health and safety advantages too, as the roll-out carpets can be positioned with less back-breaking effort than with individually placed and tied re-bars.
Bamtec fitters also report less back strain and injury.
Bamtec, made by reinforcement specialist Hy-Ten, enabled floor plates to be built quicker, with less reinforcement material, lower embedded CO2, less labour and other improvements for rebar fixers.
Anderson Construction has used the Bamtec system from Hy-Ten in a development for Bellway at Tower Hamlets, managing to complete the framework on-time despite winter weather conditions.
