Title: REINFORCING FRAMEWORK AND SLAB DESIGN
Abstract:
A reinforcing framework (10) for the construction of reinforced concrete structures includes at least two spaced-apart mesh layers (202, 204). A plurality of spaced-apart spacers (206) are mounted between the mesh layers (202, 204) to support the two mesh layers (202, 204) spaced-apart in substantially parallel planes. Each spacer (206) has a cross member with a leg extending outwardly at each end of the cross member, said legs being substantially parallel to each other and substantially perpendicular to the cross member. Each leg has a foot at an outer end of the leg remote from the cross member, the foot being substantially perpendicular to the leg and substantially perpendicular to the cross member. The cross member is bent inwardly between the legs.
