Pre-assembled welded reinforcing cages are manufactured from weldable quality, hot rolled steel to SANS 920. The cages are individually manufactured to specification and provide rigid reinforcement for piles and circular columns.
- Pre-assembled reinforcing cages manufactured as per individual specifications using hot rolled steel according to SANS920
- Pile cages can be welded in our factory at certain branches using weldable quality rebar
- Pile cages can be pre-assembled in our factory or on site
Using only hot rolled, weldable quality reinforcing bar to SANS 920, the main bars are positioned into a pre-drilled backing plate on the machine that ensure the correct centres of the bars around the cage. Numerous plates are available to provide almost limitless combinations of spacings and bar sizes. As the backing plate moves away from the starting point, the binder is fed onto the revolving cage. The speed of the revolution of the cage and the speed at which the backing plate withdraws is computer-controlled to ensure the correct pitch of the spiral to the main cage bars.The spiral is welded to the cage, ensuring a rigid and robust reinforcing cage ready to be delivered to site as required. Where necessary, for large diameter and heavy cages, additional stiffeners can be inserted into the cage to provide extra rigidity. Additional bars can be inserted if required at any stage.
Welded Reinforcing Cages have been successfully used on many major projects and have met with the approval of many clients’ stringent QA requirements. Among other projects, Welded Reinforcing Cages provides the bearing cages to the main access bridges at the O.R. Tambo International Airport; the Nelson Mandela stay cable bridge in downtown Johannesburg; all piling completed at Gateway Shopping Centre in Umhlanga Ridge; and interior columns to a major 600 megalitre covered reservoir in Midrand.
Steeledale offers a service of pre-assembling elements to the engineer’s specifications. This in turn saves the customer both time & handling. In all cases, Steeledale will liaise with the customer on delivery timelines so that pre-assembled rebar is delivered “just-in-time”.
We manufacture pre-cast reinforced walls in any height as required. Standard panel size is 1200mm high, 95mm thick and 5000mm long. The panel slots into an I-section galvanised steel post or a precast concrete column. We offer design, supply, delivery and erection of these walls. These walls are typically used for high security walls or factory walls as an alternative to steel cladding or brick work. It offers the typical precast advantages; saving time, quality confirmed and less skill on site required.
We plan to release a light weight wall system for domestic application soon.
