Parking garages and structures exist in aggressive environments where corrosion of steel reinforcement due to moisture, chlorides and chemicals has typically led to significant deterioration and rehabilitation needs. Municipalities, owners and engineers are committed to building maintenance-free and more durable structures. The non-corrosive nature of V-ROD FRP composite rebar is beneficial for improved durability, being impervious to chlorides and other actions. Numerous test results using FRP reinforcement satisfies both serviceability and strength requirements of CSA-S806-02 design code.
