Pieresearch’s UNIBAR® Receives New Patent for Revolutionary Adjustable Centering Device

Pieresearch® a leader in the design and manufacture of alignment and centralizing devices for the geo-construction industry has just received a new patent for its revolutionary UNIBAR® centralizer (patent number 10,584,459).

The answer to uniform reinforcement steel spacing requirements for single-bar foundation and earth support elements is provided by Pieresearch’s Quick-Lock® Adjustable UNIBAR® Centralizer. These rugged, light weight, quick and easy-to-install, non-corrosive centralizers are designed to keep the bar or tendon centered in the borehole to allow for required concrete or grout cover. Proper alignment in concrete or grout placement is a critical element in quality assurance and quality control.

The adjustable UNIBAR® is ideally suitable for use with soil nails, micropiles, tiebacks, or augercast-in-place piles. The UNIBAR® accommodates single and multi-bar anchors both threaded and non-threaded, strand anchors, encapsulated (DCP) anchors, and other types of soil and rock anchors in 8″ boreholes. They easily attach to #6 through #11 bars. The snap-together centralizer can be affixed with zip ties or tie wire to any type of reinforcing. They are equally effective for steel or pipe applications.
