Super Rib

Super Rib is a machine made unique mesh galvanised steel sheet stiffened by roll-formed ribs, that retains poured concrete and provides a perfect bond and shear key to the follow-on pour similar to a fully scabbled joint.

Super Rib becomes a permanent formwork thus there is no stripping required or preparation of the joint surface for the next pour.

Advantages

  • Provides a high degree of control over the quality of an interfacing scabbled joint
  • Faster and easier to use than timber formwork and chemical retarding agents used on concrete to create interlocking surfaces
  • Can be installed before reinforcement with bars pushed through the mesh at a later stage
  • Material is easy to cut, bend and shape into and around difficult profiles such as toggle joints
  • Can be used vertically or horizontally, and curved for such applications as water retaining structures
  • Enables pour to be visually monitored, thus reducing risk of voids or honey combing within concrete
  • No need to clean, reface or oil as would happen with traditional timber formwork
