Newform Wireholder Rebar Chair
The Newform Wireholder Rebar Chair from Newark Recycled Paperboard Solution is a recycled paperboard product that can be used to lift mesh, cable or wire off the ground, keeping the mesh supported above the membrane before and during concrete pouring.
Used for multiple purposes, one side can be used for wire and, when flipped over, the other side can be used for rebar. Made out of 100 percent recycled paperboard materials, Newark’s rebar chair is the first and only of its kind offering the benefit of being sustainable and allowing contractors the ability to claim the benefits of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credit. Current solutions consist of plastic, metal or concrete.
Capable of holding more than 410 pounds, the chair’s modest appearance hides ample strength and has a sturdy stable design, allowing wire to be held securely in place. Its large base provides maximum resistance to being depressed into soft sub-surfaces, permitting it to be effectively used on sand or soft fills.
Newark is company specializing in the collection of recovered fibers and the manufacturing and converting of 100 percent recycled paperboard in the United States and Canada. The company has a line of construction products, including concrete forming tubes, and floor and door protective coverings, which are geared to support environmentally conscious building.
