High Strength Reinforcement
High strength reinforcement, comprising GEWI-Plus, is used to reduce the reinforcement density of conventional grade 500 reinforcement in structural applications, by replacing it with high strength GEWI-Plus (grade 670) reinforcement.
Through the use of high strength GEWI-plus reinforcement, the quantity of reinforcing bars within compression loaded columns can be reduced. Furthermore, the cross section of these columns can also be reduced, enabling the amount of floor space within high rise buildings to be increased. Additionally, GEWI-Plus high strength reinforcement can also be used in shear walls or members designed to resist lateral loading.
