Bar mats can be used in most precast and cast-in-place concrete reinforcement applications. Their proven track record as a more efficient alternative to conventional rebar has made them, for many contractors, the solution of choice to help reduce costs and improve overall profitability.
Applications most suited for bar mats are generally large projects that are repetitive in geometry and reinforcement design. As projects with these characteristics lend themselves to prefabrication, the reinforcement steel can be more easily converted into prefabricated sheets. Converting a traditional design to high-strength, welded mats maximizes profitability.
