As said by David Allen Coe that “It is not the beauty of the building you should look at, it is the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time”, it is of utmost importance to get the foundation of the house correct and strong. There are many things involved in getting the super structure right. The basis and foundation of the house is a complex and one-time work. There are many important and fundamental materials used in setting the foundation of a building or a house. One of them is Stirrups.
A stirrup is a closed loop of reinforcement bar used to hold the main reinforcement bars together in an RCC structure. It also makes sure that the various structural elements like beams, columns etc. are built as per the design. These are placed at proper intervals to beams and columns to prevent them from buckling. There are various shapes and designs of stirrups available depending upon the load bearing member like circular, U, crosstie or polygonal. Traditionally, stirrups are made at the construction site manually by the bar benders. In most cases, such stirrups do not adhere with the standards. Beside dimensional inaccuracies, this can cause improper locking of the ends thereby increasing the chance of failure or damage during earthquakes. Inferior quality stirrups act like weak-links in a RCC structure and increase the chance of a building collapse under severe conditions.
TATA Superlink Stirrups for your rescue
TATA Superlink Stirrups are made from high strength ribbed TMT reinforcement bar. Manufactured from automatic and advanced machines adhering to consistency, accurate dimension and strong quality, it increase the compressive strength of column and even improve the ductility of column. Having 135 degree as prescribed it also confine concrete in the core thus improving the strength. It holds the longitudinal bars in place and prevent the concrete from bulging outwards. These stirrups helps to secure much needed resistance. When the pressure from above comes down on the column, the stirrups act like tendons. It also prevents premature buckling of individual bars. It helps to keep order and also add strength to the structure at critical points preventing it to collapse during earthquake or in other adverse situation. Following the standards during manufacturing which meets all the Indian Government norms like IS 456, IS 2502, IS 13920 and SP-34 ,it has managed to become everyone’s choice in foundation of a structure.
