Different types of rebar ties/Different ways of tying rebar with binding wire.

 You can tie your rebar in 6 different ways with the help of binding wire as follows.

A. Snap tie

This is a simple type of tie. The wire is wrapped once, diagonally over the junctions of rebars that should be tied, and twisted several times to create a knot. These types of ties can be used when the rebar is in the horizontal position. They are also named single ties.

B. Wall tie:

They are also said to wrap & snap ties. As you can see in fig., the binding wire is wrapped around the top bar as an additional grip before the snap tie as mentioned above.

C. Double strand single tie:

Instead of a single strand as in the case of a snap tie, here, the binding wire is wrapped with a double strand to make it stronger and more secure.

D. Saddle tie:

The wires cross half part of a top bar and then the wire is passed beneath the bottom bar on either side as shown in fig. The two ends of the wire are twisted above the top bar forming a knot of a firm grip.

E. Saddle tie with a twist:

The binding wire is wrapped to make a one and half-round alongside the top bar instead of a half-round as in the case of a saddle tie. This extra grip retains the bar movement from its tied position.

F. Cross tie :

This type of tie is also called a figure-eight tie as it resembles the number eight. Half a round of the wire is run beneath the bottom bar on either side and wrapped diagonally over the top bar to tie a knot.

All these types of ties are used depending on the nature of work, rebar position, type of structural member, etc.

 Tying of rebars is done to secure their given position with a firm grip until the completion of that particular RCC structural work. So, selecting the right type of tie is your choice as tying itself does not carry any structural load.
