Can Hy-Rib be used in water retaining structures with or without water bar/water stop?
YES. Hy-Rib has been successfully used in water retaining/excluding structures, with and without water stop/bars. It is easily split to suit the stop location.
Does Hy-Rib cause Honeycombing?
NO. Hy-Rib joints greatly reduce the risk of honeycombing. Traditional shuttering entraps air during concrete placement. Hy-Rib’s unique open mesh design allows the air to expelled through it thus reducing the risk. Tests have confirmed that the compressive strength and density of the concrete that is in contact with the Hy-Rib are higher than those of the concrete within the pour.
Why are there three grades of Hy-Rib and which one should I use?
Three grades of Hy-Rib give the temporary works designer more opportunity to optimise the support system. The alternative sheet gauges allow varying spacing of supports
Is there a right and wrong way to fix Hy-Rib?
YES. Hy-Rib should always be fixed with the point of the ribs and tangs facing into the first phase pour. Hy-Rib requires the same concrete cover as the reinforcement unless stainless steel Hy-Rib is being used.
Should the ribs run vertically or horizontally?
Hy-Rib can be fixed with the ribs running horizontally or vertically, provided the support is at right angles to the ribs.
