A cover block is essentially a spacer that is used to lift the rebar matrix off the ground so that concrete may flow underneath the rebar.
Why we Must Use Cover Blocks?
- When Doing RCC Work it is Important to Embed the Steel in the Concrete ( Also Known as Cover ) So That the Rebar Doesnt Corrode and to Provide Fire protection to the Rebar.
- If we Dont Provide the Recommended Cover the Rebar will corrode with time and Will Ultimately Result in Premature Failure of the Structure.
- Thus Using Cover Blocks Enhances the Life of the Structure Significantly without Adding Much to the Cost.
