Offsite, 12-foot wide, two-story high BauCages™ of horizontal BauGrids®, vertical rebars with couplers and steel WF link beams are quickly assembled with a very accurate dimensional tolerance of ± 1/8".


Onsite, the BauCages™ are rapidly set and easily connected using BauTech’s proprietary SpliceGrids™ at the common vertical edges of the 12-foot wide BauCages™.  Forms are speedily set around the dimensionally exact BauCages™ and concrete is rapidly placed and vibrated the full height of the HOOK-FREE "cells" of the BauGrids®.

BauGrids® save labor in both cage fabrication and installation, and eliminates congestion, speeds up concrete placement and form setting, and expedites schedules while providing superior ductility. With ± 1/8" manufacturing tolerance, BauGrids® provide accurate vertical bar location, making it possible to install a two-story BauCage™ with vertical rebar couplers in less than 30 minutes.
