RE: Using steel chains as concrete reinforcement??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I had the same thoughts Stan.  The only reason I could come up with was if
there was inadequate clearance over the top of the wall to drop a bar in.
Nonetheless, I would make them knock out the face shells and place the bar
from the side before I'd go the "chain" route.

I don't understand why anyone would want to do this unless they had some
leftover chain since I am quite sure that rebars are much cheaper for the
same capacity. Furthermore how can proper clearance be assured when the
chair will move all over when the grout pushes against it?
