Reinforced Foundation for Overhead Crane

Rebar cage used for reinforced concrete foundation

Massive foundations for an overhead crane with Rebar Reinforcing

(RC) Reinforced Concrete. As it should be the factory floor was a tough nut to crack, with 32 of these 2m x 1m x 400mm deep foundation holes it was a tough and time-consuming task. After the foundation reached its target depth of 400mm we assembled the Rebar Cages on site, these are too heavy to carry. The second half of the cage is assembled on the floor due to the weight.

The Cage is then carefully put into place and the mounting bolts perfectly aligned as the cement trucks fill each block with two cubic meters of cement. A vibrating poker is used to get all the air out of the cement.
