We’ve visited several construction sites in order to share with you this up-close look at the process, but we have to admit sometimes we’ll see some construction-related object and have absolutely no idea what it is.
It’s a good thing there are plenty of people on the site of whom we can ask: “what is that?”
We thought we’d share their answers here on the blog and we’ll get started with rebar caps.
A rebar cap is a special steel-reinforced plastic “mushroom” cap that is placed on protruding rebar at construction sites.
|Rebar caps protect from injuries.|
If there’s a long row of rebar, a 2x4 piece of lumber can actually be placed on top of these caps providing another layer of safety.
