To an outsider, tying rebar may seem as simple as doing your shoelaces. However, it can be a highly demanding and cumbersome task. Eventually, you might find it back-breaking and causing aches and pains in your hands, wrists and fingers. That’s what happens when you tie rebar manually. It even puts you at risk of developing chronic repetitive strain injuries and musculoskeletal damage down the line. To avoid those hazards, you may want to consider investing in a good bar tie tool.
An innovative tool
Manual rebar tying is inefficient and outdated. It’s also a health hazard recognised by organisations, such as National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in the US and the Construction Safety Association of Ontario. Bar tie tools (also known as rebar tiers) are powerful devices that automatically tie reinforcement steel bars. They are carefully designed and tested to ensure the quickest and safest way to tie rebar.
How fast can it tie rebar?
A high-quality bar tie tool can complete a precise tying action in under a second, depending on the model. Some models ensure lightning-quick speeds that tie rebar in 0.6 seconds and are capable of performing more than 5,000 ties with two wraps per charge. Other automatic rebar tie guns can tackle challenging tying operations in just 0.8 seconds.
Avoid back-breaking efforts
Bending over is sometimes unavoidable when tying rebar, but you don’t have to do that anymore because you can attach the bar tying tool to an electronic extension arm. It’s an ergonomic solution with an electronic trigger that tells the tool to do its job and complete the task in under a second.
Get a high-quality rebar tie tool
The bar tie tool is a handy device that can save you time and money during every construction job. It allows you to tie rebar quickly and efficiently to increase productivity without risking your health. Be sure to get bar tie tools for every worker involved in rebar tying to improve productivity and safety as well as prevent musculoskeletal injuries.
