The Reo-Sok System comprises brightly coloured extruded plastic caps to which reinforcement bars can be added for increased protection. The various sizes of Reo-Sok cater for all common reinforcement steel diameters as well as covering ends of star pickets and some scaffolding profiles. The Reo-Sok System is recognised and accepted by various Federal and State Safety Authorities in Australia and New Zealand. Tests conducted by TEI Consulting Engineers, highly respected testing engineers in the United States, have proven that Reo-Sok drastically reduces the risk of impalement and other serious injuries in the workplace. Advantages „ High visibility yellow „ Suits 12 to 24 mm reinforcing bars „ High visibility orange „ Suits 24 to 36 m diameter reinforcing bar „ Also suitable for star pickets Application Continuous Application Ensure reinforcement bars are level. Place the correct size Reo-Sok protective cap on exposed bars. Clip-in 12 mm continuous bar. Bend return ends to 90º for safety. Any reinforcement bars that protrude above the rest should be cut back level. Stand Alone Application For reo-bars that stand alone or that need to be higher than others. Reo-Sok combined with protective T-Bar must be used. T-Bars are available on request or simply make your own on site. This will not provide the same protection as the continuous Reo-Sok System, however it will provide greater protection than no bar at all. Trench or similar Application Where a worker can fall into trenches, shafts, piers, etc, the Reo-Sok System must be used with protection bar. Horizontal Bars Reo-bars that protrude horizontally can be made safer with Reo-Soks applied without the need for an additional bar. October 2008
