    Anti-Impalement ReACTer Cap with the VRZ System

    As part of our commitment to continually seeking to offer our customers new and innovative products, RFA-Tech has been working exclusively in partnership with its local UK Rebar Safety Cap supplier to find a proven solution for protecting your workforce from the danger of impalement by reinforcement starter bars on construction sites.

    There is currently no British Standard for a Rebar Safety Cap in the UK. However, in the USA they have introduced testing and specification standards California Regs (OSHA) - 344.90 Impalement protection specifications and test criteria. This specifies drop test specifications for an anti-impalement cap which can be approved for working at a height of 2.3 metres. The ReACTer Cap has been designed and tested to exceed these requirements, witnessed by an independent UKAS and ANSI accredited testing laboratory. 

    How it Works

    The ReACTer Cap works in 2 different, but complimentary ways:

    Firstly, the inner flutes reduce the speed the cap is pushed down onto the reinforcement.

    Secondly, the ribs & ridge underneath the head dissipate the impact force by flexing and directing the force over the sides of the cap. These two features combine to give what is known as the ‘VRZ’ or ‘Velocity Reduction Zone’.

    The ‘VRZ’, in conjunction with the careful selection of a thermoplastic polymer prevents the reinforcement from breaching the cap and therefore prevents impalement.

    The ReACTer Cap is visually quite unique. The head is flat and approximately 100cm2. Below the head of the cap there is a set of ribs to support the head and provide the ‘VRZ’.

    There are 3 sizes of ReACTer Cap available to fit reinforcementsizes 8-16mm, 16-32mm and 40-50mm.
