Bar-Lift Yellow Chairs Work For Any Concrete Foundation Project
Residential & Commercial Concrete foundations
Why use our revolutionary rebar support chair ( Bar-Lift ) ?
Whether the job is for a residential driveway or a multistory building, the rules never change: you’ve got to position your rebar at the midpoint of the concrete foundation’s depth. Fortunately, Bar-Lift’s yellow chairs are designed to snap effortlessly onto rebar and wire mesh of various sizes and raise them the perfect height without any guesswork. We make four different models of chairs for specific construction including residential and commercial.
The American Concrete Institute states that the rebar in a concrete foundation must be placed at the midpoint of the depth of the foundation. This is necessary to obtain greater strength and longevity of the concrete slab.
Many contractors, until now, have been using rocks, broken bricks, or even inferior support products. This results in uneven distribution of the rebar mesh, exposure to the elements, corrosion, and even failure. The pouring of the concrete mix displacing the rebar mesh, workers bumping into or even stepping on the rebar are even more reasons to use Bar-Lift.

Why is Bar-Lift the top choice for rebar placement?
It’s cost-effective. With 2 1/2” of horizontal support, you can place the chairs further apart, resulting in fewer chairs per job overall.
Its visible safety yellow color means that your workers will have an easier time keeping up with them on the job site.
It’s dependable. By design, it is capable of supporting torsional and lateral forces without failing.
It’s strong. During pouring, the Bar-Lift yellow chair completely fills with concrete and assumes the same pressure (2500-3500 psi) as the concrete poured.
It’s also lightweight (41 grams). Workers can easily carry both rebar and a full bag containing 250 plastic chairs.
It’s easy to use. Each Bar-Lift chair snaps onto the rebar, stirrup or wire mesh material and stays in position without shifting, collapse or breakage.
It’s affordable. We have a flexible pricing plan that allows you to buy just the right choice of chairs for your concrete foundation project
