IN THE MIX - THE LATEST CONCRETE NEWS

THE BENDOMETER IS BACK 01 May 2013

The Cement & Concrete Association of New Zealand (CCANZ) and the Pacific Steel Group have reissued the Bendometer to assist best practice in the bending of steel reinforcing.

The Bendometer is endorsed by building and housing of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

During use the appropriate disc should be selected by matching the width of one of the notches to the diameter of the bar to be checked.

The inside diameter of each bend in the bar should be equal to or greater than the diameter of the selected disc.

Any bend with an inside diameter less than the diameter of the selected disc, does not comply with New Zealand Standards.

Note: The Bendometer is intended for use on main bars only, not for stirrups and ties.

The Bendometer is available for $5 per set by contacting CCANZ on 04 499 8820 or by emailing admin@ccanz.org.nz.
