Amvic Brick Ledge ReInforcer

The Amvic Brick Ledge ReInforcer® is an engineered ICF Brick ledge reinforcement system that is designed to replace conventional rebar in the Amvic ICF brick ledge forms. It is a single pre-assembled, 4ft (1.2m) long deformed welded wire reinforcement piece that is placed directly into Amvic’s brick ledge. Conventional brick ledge forms must be reinforced properly with a line of horizontal rebar and stirrups between the horizontal bars in both the ledge and the wall area of the brick ledge form.

The Amvic Brick Ledge ReInforcer® eliminates the horizontal rebar and stirrups in the ledge area allowing the Amvic ReInforcer® to be easily placed into the form in one step; providing cost savings of up to 30% when factoring in materials and labour with pre-bent or field fabricated rebar reinforcement.

The reinforcer is compatible with Amvic’s Standard ICF Brick Ledge forms in both 6” and 8”, the Amvic Plus 6” and the fabricated brick ledge extension. Once placed in the ICF form, The Amvic ReInforcer® does not need to be butted, lapped or tied to each other.
