500PLUS BAMTEC
Reinforcing in a Roll

Benefits

BAMTEC is the world’s fastest steel fixing system. It involves • Super-fast construction
designing and prefabricating reinforcing steel “carpets” to a • Save up to 80% on steel-fixing costs
wide range of shapes and sizes. • Ideal for suspended slabs, slab on ground,
CRCP and tilt-up panels
Individual rebars are welded to flexible steel straps, which can • Improves cost effectiveness of slab construction
connect up to hundreds of bars together, and the carpet is rolled • Variable spacing and bar diameters available
up for handling and transport. • Improved accuracy and quality
The carpets can contain different types and sizes of bars, have • Less material waste and scrap
bars at different spacings and can accommodate complex • Design assistance available
shapes and penetrations. • Less bending and carrying
• Easier chairing and no bars to sort
When needed on site, the carpet is simply lifted into place and
• Simpler marking plan
unrolled onto continuous bar chairs.

Size limits
The minimum diameter of bar which can be used with
BAMTEC is 10mm. The largest diameter used is 32mm
Class N 500PLUS REBAR.
The minimum bar spacing is 50mm up to a maximum
spacing of 400mm. BAMTEC comes in widths from
1.8m minimum to 15m. Maximum mass per carpet is
approximately 1.6 Tonne.
