Kwikastrip is a system that comprises of special pre bent reinforcement housed in a purpose designed carrier casing – all of which is fabricated off site in a factory controlled environment.
On site, the entire unit is cast into the face of the wall. After the formwork is struck, the lid is removed to reveal the connection legs (or starter bars) laying inside the casing. These legs are bent out by the contractor, ready for lapping the main reinforcement of the subsequent pour.
The casing remains embedded in the wall, providing a rebate into which the concrete is poured and eliminates the need for traditional preparation at the joint.
Kwikastrip was the very first product ever to be awarded CARES technical approval status.
Approximately 85% of Kwikastrip is purpose made. The aim is always to replicate the reinforcement detailers design in a more buildable format for the contractor. No other system can rival Kwikastrip’s total flexibility in this regard. Please call us with your requirement.
