WHY USE IT?

In order to support the entire rebar cage vertically within the drilled shaft and provide proper clearance between the rebar reinforcement and the earthen surface at the bottom of the shaft. The encapsulation of the ends of the vertical rebar provides added corrosion protection. 

BARBOOT

A simple and economical method of supporting and spacing vertical cage reinforcement at the base of drilled shafts.
