Independent drop tests show that the Life Guard™ caps prevent penetration of 114 kg sand bags when dropped from 3.05 m above capped reinforcement bars and star pickets. Under impact, the end of the rebar is directed into the centre boss and retained there, preventing the cap from being displaced. This inhibits the bar from breaking out through the side of the sleeve. Advantages „ Yellow to suit bars from 12-20 mm nominal diameter „ Orange to suit 24-36 mm nominal diameter bars plus star pickets „ Manufactured from robust, UV-stabilised polypropylene „ Domed carapace 115 mm diameter „ Encapsulated domed steel plate 2 mm thick with central raised boss „ Internal ribs within sleeve to hold cap centrally on bar „ Twelve gussets between sleeve and carapace „ Longitudinal stiffening ribs incorporated into sleeve. Packaging Two specific sizes of Life Guard™ caps available: ‡ to suit bars from 12 to 20 mm nominal diameter (Yellow) ‡ to suit 24 to 36 mm nominal diameter bars plus star pickets (Orange) October 2008
