Benefits

  • Tilt-proof stability
  • No foreign body in concrete
  • Lightweight
  • Design in conformity with German DBV guidelines
    (DBV leaflet “Chairs according to Eurocode 2”: FRd = 0.67 kN/m)
  • Increased stability due to big wire diameters
  • Structural bearing of shear forces
  • Easy length adjustment by bending
  • For bar reinforcement and for wire fabric reinforcement
  • Slender truss system

Installation / Placement

For the placement of spacer strips hqDS, a distance of approx. 0.50 m between strips is recommended. This corresponds to approx. 1 strip per m² of top reinforcement. In case of thicker top reinforcements, it is possible to widen the pitch between strips.
