BARMAT

BARMAT is our customised prefab bar mat solution for reinforced suspended slab construction, precast panels and culverts, retaining walls, road parapets, diaphragm walls and shotcrete walls.

BARMAT is fabricated off-site, using automated machine manufacturing that allows steel to be prefabricated with variable bar sizes and spacing in a variety of mat shapes, configurations and sizes. BARMAT offers increased efficiencies and labour savings. Site safety is enhanced, because there is no cutting and minimal handling.
