Ligatures

Ligatures, also commonly known as fitments, are pieces of steel reinforcing bar which are used to create reinforcing steel cages. Ligatures are often used to assist in creating footing cages, pile cages, bored piers, column cages, walls and suspended beams. Ligatures serve two main purposes:

    • Separate bars at the specified spacing
    • Increase integrity and strength of the structure

Benefits Of Ligatures

  • Available in stock lengths
  • Can be round or deformed steel bar
  • Holds steel in place
  • Adds structural integrity and strength
  • Separation of bar when creating cages
  • Can be custom ordered to specifications

Why Use Ligatures?

The main advantage with using ligatures is that it enables accurate placement of reinforcing bars in steel cages. It also allows an extra layer of strength within the cage, as the fitments add structural integrity.

Using ligatures, you are able to fabricate the steel cage either offsite or somewhere safer onsite and then place the entire cage into the structural element as specified.

Stock ligatures are available for order in regular shapes and sizes. If the size you require is not available in stock, we can manufacture ligatures to suit your custom specification requirement.
