ACI 318 7.7 covers requirements for cover when designing rebar placement within concrete. However, they are for general components and makes no exceptions for small irregularities such as lifting hook anchors that one may wish to place. I am not an expert with concrete so I wondered if anyone can point out to me whether there are exceptions to these requirements and whether these minor irregularities are actually required to have the same cover requirements, or are they small enough that it's usually not a significant concern.
Example of hook lift anchors: https://meadowburke.com/product/hook-lift-anchor/ https://meadowburke.com/product/hook-lift-recess-former/
So, actually, I am more curious about the recess that I am putting in as you can see within that catalogue (I added a link above). It's obvious that the recess can reduce cover for some of the rebars involved, and I wondered if that will be an issue or whether or not that will create issues later. Any advice?
