WHY USE POST-INSTALLED REBAR
Post-installed rebars – strong and easy to use
If you’re looking to extend, join or strengthen walls, slabs, columns or beams, then post-installed rebar systems can help with new or existing builds from residential buildings to bridges.
Post-installed rebar connections are anchorages and splices that are fixed into place by adhesive, using our Hilti HIT injection adhesives.
They’re easy and fast to use. Simply drill a hole, inject our Hilti HIT chemical adhesives and then install your steel bar.
And they’re at least as strong as cast-in place reinforcement bars, as proven in tests by European Technical Approvals (TR023). So you can design post-installed rebars into your build using the same principles as for any reinforced concrete design.
POST-INSTALLED REBAR AND HILTI SAFESET™ SYSTEM
Post-installed rebar systems are also:
- very flexible
- useful for a wide range of applications
- can work in shallow areas of concrete
Our Hilti SafeSet™ system helps speed up post-installed rebar installation. Hilti SafeSet™ vacuums up dust while drilling, minimising dust and cutting out the need to manually clean the drilled hole.
