Retrofit bed joint reinfor­cem­ent pack containing 6mm x 7m stainless steel helical bars.  The versatile 6mm reinforcing bar is the standard size rod used for most masonry repair and brick re­in­for­cement applications

Twistfix 6mm helical bars have a nominal tensile strength that is twice that of rebar, four times that of epoxy glass-fibre rods and seven times that of wound helix plate (Ref: BRE GBG62)

Technical Details

  • Grade of Stainless Steel       =   304 Austenetic
  • Helical Bar Dimensions          =   6mm diameter x 7000mm long
  • Nominal Cross Section Area  =   7.4 mm
  • Ultimate Tensile Strength      =   1050-1200N­/mm2

Available in packs of 5, these 7 metre long helical bars are tied in a loop for ease of tran­spor­ta­ti­on. Some memory-coil may be retained when the re­in­for­cement is un-coiled.

Read the BRE Report and Load / Span Tables to determine the load bearing capacity of a brick beam/ lintel formed with 6mm helical reinforcing bars. These BRE tables relate to genuine second generation patented 6mm helical bars used with WHO-60 grout. Do not use BRE tables if using other types of helibars, other bar diameters or alternative mortars/ resin.
