Well, there's a new approach! But I am skeptical as to whether the cable ties can be tightened sufficiently to adequately secure rebar cages and/or mats against displacement. The only way I know to prove or disprove the viability of this idea is to try it out. I would consider permitting the contractor to provisionally tie up a small portion of the work this way. I would take measurements of the placement, then I would test the installation by having a crew of 200# ironworkers walk around on the installation and check the resulting effects. If you are comfortable that, by this method, the work is adequately tied and secured to prevent dislocation of the bars beyond standard placing tolerances through the completion of the concrete placement, then all's well. -Brent -----Original Message----- From: W.

Is there any particular reason to allow/disallow the practice?
