Conac’s Ultrafix Circular Spacers are designed for use in civil precast and commercial construction applications. The unique design offers 360 degrees of cover. The built-in sleeves prevent the circular spacer from twisting when in position, holding the bar firmly in place.
The central clip in the Ultrafix 5-16 model also locks the reinforcement, so it stops it from falling out even if the Ultrafix rotates against the formwork as the reinforcement is lowered. The circular spacer provides the same level of concrete cover, irrespective of the bar diameter in use.
Why are Ultrafix Circular Spacers popular?
Circular spacers, like Ultrafix, also go by the names wagon wheels, fast wheels, circulars or pile cage spacers. Circular spacers provide support in raked pile applications, where a reinforcing mesh or rebar is placed in a vertical position.
For example, circular spacers are designed to be used when lowering cages into pile holes or trenches. By clipping the circular spacer on to the cage, they keep the cage correctly spaced as it is lowered into the trench.
CONAC’s Ultrafix Circular Spacer will not twist out of the desired position, thereby ensuring your reinforcing steel is positioned exactly where you need it.
