Fiber concrete spacers for concrete pipes

Max Frank GmbH & Co. KG, based in Leiblfing, Germany, has developed special geometries for spacers to facilitate the centering of reinforcing cages in concrete pipe production. This in combination with the elevated reinforcement at the foot of the pipe ensures the durability of concrete pipes. Apart from the elevated reinforcement, spacers with longitudinal and transverse clamps are offered. For the spacers made of fiber concrete, a KOMO product certificate according to the Dutch BRL 2817 assessment guideline is available.
