2008-07 to 2008-12
During the autumn of 2008, me and a group of 6 students worked with Mälarplast AB to develop a new type of rebar shims. The purpose of the product is to lift rebars when pouring concrete in order to ensure the structural integrity of the construction. The challenge was to save material during production of the shims while keeping the rigidity of products offered at the market at the time.
The result was three concepts, one for wall mounted rebars, one for floor placed rebars and one for rebar nets. This was the start of a new company, "Armeringsdistanser i Mälardalen AB", which now sells the rebar shims at Armeringsdistanser.se.
