Formwork Z Bar (also known as tie bar) is a 16mm diametre high tensile bar used in a tie system to hold wall or column formwork together while concrete is being poured and is curing. It has a coarse thread for easy and very fast wind-on and wind-off, making set-up quick and reliable. It is normally used with wingnuts, washers, conduits and cones, as a complete system.
Safari Group’s Z-bar is a premium hot-rolled product most commonly supplied in 6m lengths, but shorter lengths can be supplied on request.
