Helical Bars

Twistfix helical bars are precision engineered reinforcing steels used for retrofit bed joint rein­for­cement to upgrade the tensile and flexural capacity of a masonry wall.

The bars have deep and continuous helical troughs that ensure bonding charac­te­ristics with proprietary mortars are superior to those of any alternative brick rein­for­cement bar.

The twisted bars are manuf­ac­tured from round stainless steel wire, which is passed through a series of profiled rolls to progres­sively alter its shape in cross-section. The cold rolled shaped wire is then forced through a twisting die to deliver a patented precision engineered helical rein­for­cement bar with unique torsional elastic yield charac­te­ristics and a tensile strength that is double that of standard stainless steel.

Why do these shaped and twisted helical bars offer superior rein­for­cement to earler versions of helibar?

  • Upgraded by the inventor and designer of the earlier Helifix helibar product
  • Raw material is selected from a single grade of stainless steel within the 304 range for greater consistency
  • Re-designed cross sectional shape for improved strength and to alleviate inter-annealing processes
  • Die operated twisting technique for unequalled consistency of pitch angle and tensile strength

Twistfix Helical bars provide a quick, easy and cost-effective means of restoring or adding strength to existing buildings. A series of structural repair details and 'how to' animations demonstrate the ease and versatility of installing these UK designed and manufactured brick rein­for­cement products.
