Why Choose a Cordless Rebar Tying ToolRebar tying tools help reduce health risks such as carpal tunnel and back injuries for workers. They also save time and money by completing a tying job in half a second or less.
A high quality cordless rebar tier will tie rebar five times faster than manual tying. That saves on labor costs, which is good for the contractor and the project budget.
The best battery rebar tiers also eliminate the back pain that is often associated with manually tying rebar. They allow you to work from a standing position instead of stooping or kneeling, which reduces the risk of injury.
Check out rebar tier specifications to find out how big of a diameter rebar it can tie (most models max out at #7 rebar). Look for battery recharge time and how fast you can swap out wire spools, which will likely happen frequently.
Rebar tying tools loop and twist tie wire, wrapping it around the intersections of reinforcing bars to prevent shifting when concrete is poured. Battery-powered cordless rebar tying tools cut and twist the wire with a push of a button, eliminating a labor-intensive job that’s typically done by hand.
Reduces Risk of Injuries
Rebar is an essential part of concrete construction, providing strength and stiffening the structure. However, tying it by hand can be backbreaking work. A cordless rebar tying tool helps prevent injury by using a mechanical power tier to loop and twist wire around the intersections of reinforcing bars.
Rebar tiers also allow workers to tie more per wire reel than manual tools and are typically faster than a pneumatic rebar tool, tying up to three bars in about one second. Some rebar tiers feature adjustable tying strengths, easy-to-load wire reel positions, and a transparent cover for visibility. They run on lithium-ion batteries for fast, consistent tying and charging times that are shorter than professional models.
If you’re using a cordless rebar tying tool, you can cinch a wire tie around the intersections of reinforcing bars to prevent them from shifting when concrete is poured. Also known as rebar tie guns, these battery-powered tools make it easier to loop and twist rebar together.
