Continuing the Path To Innovative Building
Helix has more than 15 years of history; from its development as university research to practical, everyday applications. Helix was first introduced to the market by Luke Pinkerton, company President and CTO in 2003.
Pinkerton, a mechanical engineer, and other researchers began working to develop what is now Helix for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers as an alternative to rebar in blast resistant applications where rebar was not good enough and too cumbersome to use.
Today, this technology is not only used for blast resistant, high impact applications, but a wide array of uses including in the construction of commercial buildings to roads, bridges, homes and airports.
Helix is manufactured in the United States and sold across the United States and around the world. It has been used in more than 30 countries, with that number growing.
What is Helix?
Helix is Micro-Rebar. Helix is an excellent accompaniment to the TF Forming Systems' insulated concrete wall systems. In many applications, these tiny, twisted steel fibers can be a replacement for rebar and in most cases, a better way to reinforce concrete.
Here are some benefits of Helix:
