Driven by customer and market demand, Fox Blocks, the Nebraska based Insulated Concrete Forms manufacturer, evaluated leading concrete reinforcement technologies for inclusion in their structures. This search identified Helix Steel Twisted Steel Micro Rebar as the ideal solution to reinforce concrete. Helix Steel TSMR is a 3-dimensional concrete reinforcement solution that has International Accreditations and Approvals covering 99 countries.

By incorporating Helix Steel TSMR in their structures Fox Blocks can provide customers with added strength, resiliency and durability all while shortening the construction schedule and achieving sustainability objectives.

Over the past year teams from Fox Blocks and Helix Steel have collaborated from a design and engineering perspective, culminating in this Strategic Partner Alliance between the two companies. The Alliance enables Helix Steel TSMR to be supplied with Fox Blocks Insulated Concrete Forms across the entire Fox Blocks dealer network.

Mr Mike Kennaw, VP of Fox Blocks said that "The combination of Fox Blocks ICF and Helix Steel allows us deliver more resilient, durable and sustainable concrete structures to our customer base. By including Helix Steel TSMR in our wall, slab and footing designs, our customers will realize the benefits of increased shear capacity, 3-dimensional concrete reinforcement and achieve elevated FEMA ratings for hurricane and tornadic activity. This Alliance empowers our partner network to deliver these industry leading solutions."

Mr Chris Doran CEO said that "Helix Steel is excited about our involvement with Fox Blocks. The combination of our respective technologies will deliver tremendous value and time savings."
