Helix Steel manufactures and distributes Helix Twisted Steel Micro Reinforcement (TSMR) worldwide. Originally developed for blast and earthquake resistant concrete, Helix Micro Rebar increases concrete’s strength and resilience and eliminates or reduces traditional reinforcement (rebar and mesh) required by building codes. Helix is added at the ready-mix plant or on site directly to the concrete mix – reducing costs and valuable time. Clients say they save one day of construction for every 10,000 square feet of rebar they replace with Helix.
Helix Steel has enjoyed over a decade of successful helping clients build better lower cost structures. It has been used in projects ranging from commercial to infrastructure, residential to heavy industrial, shotcrete to precast. Unlike rebar, mesh and fibers, which do not activate until the concrete has cracked, Helix increases the flexural strength of concrete prior to the development of visible cracks.
