What Is trimming bar ? cant find definition or photo

What Is trimming bar ? cant find definition or photo

I was looking at some plans and noticed that some temperature bars in the wall stem were labeled as "Trimmer Bars" - I have tried looking at my reference for the definition of a trimmer bar but I still have not been able to find anything.

Appreciate your help, in trying to figuere out what a Trimmer Bar means?


RE: What Is trimming bar ? cant find definition or photo

Can you post a picture of what the plans were referring to as trimmer bars? That would be helpful for us to be able to help you.

I believe the previous word for word identical post complete with the same spelling mistakes (and yet made 14 years apart) that IRstuff linked to holds the answer. What an amazing coincidence?!

Bars trimming openings in walls and slabs are often referred to as trimmer bars, usually additional to any of the main reinforcement. Sometimes additional bars might be placed on the diagonal as a crack control measure as well.
