Reinforcement grid START SYSTEM

Patent №171313
Patent №171315

Reinforcement grid START SYSTEM was developed to replace both heavier steel grid structures of similar purpose and regular rebar (both steel and FRP) with its time-consuming and costly on-site tying

Technology of production

High-precision Made In Russia equipment enables perpendicular tying of FRP rods by means of Thermal Welding technology. Tying does not deform bars and enables rigidness of the grid’s geometry. Rods are typically made of ribbed or sand-coated GFRP rebar for better adhesion. Other materials and forms are available upon request.

Functions and Advantages

Composite reinforcement grids START SYSTEM functionally replace steel with a smaller diameter of FRP in reinforcing concrete structures in a number of applications. The advantages are as follows:
- ~35% cost-cutting compared to heavier pre-welded steel grids
- FRP grids are pre-welded so there is no need to tie rebar on-site
- up to 9 times lighter if used with a smaller diameter of FRP
- up to three times stronger in terms of tensile strength
- FRP grids do not corrode and efficiently resist to concrete’s alkaline environment
- extensions enable fast and efficient connection of sheets to form vast even surfaces
- enhanced adhesion with concrete due to ribbed/sanded shape of rods
- grids may be up to 12 meters long which enables enormous speed of installation
- improved, less time-consuming, more comfortable and more cost-efficient logistics with much faster placement around the construction site
