STABOX standby boxes are used in concrete structures when continuous reinforcements are required, and for reasons of use, these reinforcements cannot be implemented in a single stage. The box can simply be placed on the formwork. After concreting, the cover can be removed easily and the bars contained in the unfolded boxes. (for 6/8/10/12 mm bars)
Stabox standby boxes are delivered made to measure to the worksite and can hence be used directly. The STABOX is made of steel bars, unfoldable once, contained in a rigid steel box closed by a cover in composite material and two polystyrene removable plugs. Its exclusive dovetail profile secures anchoring in first stage concrete. The set allows fast and effective linking between the elements.
The STABOX withstands heavy loads thanks to its well-studied profile. Tests have been carried out for boxes without callipers in C25/30 class concrete. The breakage observed is still visible in the concrete; no loosening of the box.
The results can never be used to reduce the steel cross-section, but they enable the oversizing of the steel reinforcement on the worksite to be avoided, to compensate for uncertainties.
Seismic staboxes follow the same production method as those of the standard range. They are distinguished by longer unfolded steel reinforcements meeting the current requirements for seismic calculation strips.
Indeed, 30% additional reinforcement length is included in overlap with respect to the conventional length in non-critical areas of the structure and 50% more in critical areas.

Using the STABOX box saves implementation time through easier formwork stripping. <br/>As a producer, we can meet all your specific requests.<br/>The use of the unfolding tool is strongly recommended to prevent a bayonet effect.
8. Stabox for pre-slab, a standby welded under the Stabox creates the bearing for the pre-slab, facilitating its use
1. Choose a length compatible with the cover required in the second stage concrete. Check the presence of polystyrene caps at both ends of the box
6. Use an appropriate unfolding tool to prevent warping when unfolding the reinforcement bars (bayonet effect)
7. Stabox bending
The Stabox can be bent by cutting the sides of the box. Obviously it is important not to crop or damage the steel reinforcements inside the box. Openings in the boxes must be sealed meticulously before concrete casting.
