Scope of supply:
2,000 tons thread bars SAS 670/800 Ø 63.5 mm,
121 tons thread bars SAS 670/800 Ø 43 mm,
with SAS couplers with set screws
The thread bars SAS 670/800 are used in this building as reinforcing steel in the foundation slab and shear walls - the primary supporting elements in the building. Due to high wind loads on tall structures shear walls
contain concentration of reinforcing steel. A practical and elegant solution is to reduce the number and
quantity of rebar by substituting thread bars SAS 670/800 Ø 43 mm and 63.5 mm for conventional rebar.
Additionally, eliminating lap splices with threadable coupling results in significant additional.
