Steel posts will reinforce the narrow walls on either side of the bi-fold hangar door. These posts will be fastened to concrete pads by threaded rod. The threaded rods are inserted into the concrete pads before the concrete cures. A plywood template ensures that the rods are positioned correctly relative to one another as they are inserted.
|This is one of the concrete pads on each end of the bi-fold hangar door. The threaded rods are assembled into the template and waiting.|
|Inserting the threaded rods into the concrete pad. The pink string marks a reference line from which to determine the correct position.|
|Carefully measuring to ensure that the rods are in the correct position.|
