Vertors – The Fastest Way To Set Rebar
We are out of Vertors for now! Sorry
Vertors Best Rebar Chair Ever!!!
Vertors has solved the rebar-tying dilemma of holding vertical rebar in place while the concrete is poured. There is a plastic vertical rod and a plastic snap that holds the rebar in place. There are rebar chairs on the market but none of them hold the rebar into a veritical position like Vertors do!!
One of the hardest jobs on a construction site is tying rebar. Setting rebar for concrete is gnarly and nasty work. The rebar is dirty with oils and sometimes a bit of rust. The rebar tie wire is oily and gets all over your clothes, hands or gloves. You spend the day constantly bent over, performing repetitious movements all day long, the same thing over and over again. Rebar tying is very exhausting and unrewarding work.
Holding the rebar in a vertical position is something that I have never seen in the hundreds of rebar chairs that I have used over the years – which is ironic since the hardest part of tying rebar is getting the rebar into a vertical position and making it stay that way as hundreds of pounds of concrete come sliding down the concrete shoot and slam into the rebar. There is a lot of force when liquid rock weighing in at around eighty pounds per cubic foot comes crashing into a rack of rebar tied together with a few loops of tie wire.
I know for a fact that Vertors will help your concrete footing pouring go quicker and easier! When I started using Vertors I was able to cut my rack crew labor (rebar setting footing crew) by 40%. That was instant profit in my pocket!
The rewards in most construction activities come in standing back after a long day and gazing upon the fruits of your labor, but when you tie rebar, you get to look at it for a few minutes but when you are finished it gets covered with concrete never to been seen again –well ‘er, uh, hopefully you won’t see it again provided you and the concrete pouring crew did their jobs correctly. I have always loved masonry and concrete work. I enjoyed the planning, the conceptualizing, the drawing, the layout the setup and the pouring or laying, but as hard as I tried I could never make myself like tying rebar. Then to my great luck in 1999 I found a fabulous invention called Vertors. Vertors are plastic rebar chairs that suspend and support the rebar off of the ground – rebar does you no good if it is not in the middle of the footing or cavity and surrounded by concrete – but Vertors goes a step further, in that Vertors has a vertical support that holds the vertical rebar in position as well. Setting rebar in your footings is now as easy as one two three. Just as the video above shows, vertors are for real and they save you time and money!!
