TruncatedX delivers diagonal reinforcement at a steeper angle than the current code-based approach, resulting in the same capacity for significantly less steel.  By using fewer bars and reducing the overlapping of reinforcement, TruncatedX achieves thinner walls – meaning less congestion and more net rentable square footage (NRSF).
