To assist storage of rebar on site, timber chock frames were produced to provide the following benefits:
- It allows lifting slings to be removed without damaging the sling or causing a finger trap for the slinger. If reinforcement is to be moved again by crane, it can be done so off the chocks with the same benefits.
- Once the bundle banding/ ties are removed, the individual loose bars are still contained inside the chock. This helps housekeeping and makes it easier to sling reinforcement again if needed.
- Bar sizes and marks are kept organised and separate to assist good housekeeping.
- Chocks are easily produced and re-used when required.
