Gripper and Tric-trac spacers are designed to support the steel reinforcement used within reinforced concrete structures. The spacers remain in-situ throughout the construction process allowing the reinforcement to become encased in concrete. When installed correctly at the appropriate centres, the use of reinforcement spacers, ensure that the correct cover between the reinforcement and formwork is maintained.
Used to support reinforcing steel or mesh prior to the pouring of concrete to form a reinforced concrete structure. The spacers are left in place during the pouring of the concrete and become a permanent part of the structure upon completion.
Suitable for supporting steel reinforcement to aid load distribution and ensure adequate concrete cover is achieved. (Tric-tracs can provide both vertical and horizontal support)
