Foundation Frames are lightweight, simple to use and off er a fast and efficient system to support mesh in concrete footings. The reinforcement cages are easy to assemble, with clips that tie the top and bottom mesh together, which takes the place of ligatures, stirrups and bogar clips. The frames come in 3 easy to identify sizes, 150/200mm, 250/300mm, 350/400mm and can be used on 8mm, 11mm and 12mm mesh. The frames clip onto the main longitudinal wire and the cross wire of the trench mesh at 900mm intervals, creating a rigid cage.
6 metre lengths can be quickly assembled outside the trench for placement after the trench is prepared. The bottom layer of the mesh is supported 50mm off the ground eliminating the need for trench mesh supports or bar chairs.
