COMBISAFE launches new innovative rebar socket

COMBISAFE has developed an innovative socket for use with its edge protection posts or traditional scaffolding. The socket comes complete with a hook and anchor to enable precast manufacturers to quickly secure it rigidly to the rebar without the need for wiring or spacers.

The socket is fixed at a junction of the rebar mesh before further reinforcements are added and the concrete poured. The use of the robust hook and anchor ensures the socket will not move while the casting table is oscillated or vibrated, or while the concrete surface is being keyed.
