Reinforced steel for concrete is one of the most commonly used construction supplies around the world. This tool is made from a combination of concrete and reinforcement, hence the term reinforcement concrete.
Reinforcement concrete is created by embedding deformed steel bars or welded wire into fresh concrete when casting. A reinforcement bar is beneficial in providing additional strength for concrete when needed. The steel offers all the tensile strength where concrete is in tension, like in beams and slabs. It compresses the materials to add more power to columns and walls.
The rebars (short for reinforcing bar) are typically made from twisted strands of steel with nobbles or ridges to allow them to hold the concrete without slipping around inside it firmly. While other contractors use other kinds of materials to reinforce concrete, Carrabay Rebar only uses steel because it contracts and expands in the heat and cold, just like the concrete. This characteristic means it won’t crack the concrete that surrounds it, unlike other materials.
Carrabay Rebar offers the following:
- All reinforcing bar and fabric mesh manufactured to AS/NZS 4671:2001
- Diameters from 12mm to 40mm
- Standard lengths from 6m to 15m with the capability to produce custom, complex orders
- Raw materials sourced from registered Australian suppliers
- Bending and shaping compliant with Australian Standards
- Our rebar grade range includes:
- D500N deformed bar
- 250N Round bar
Aside from rebar, we also offer pre-fabrication and welding of cages made from reinforced steel components. Our in-house expert welders comply with AS/NZS 1554:2014 and RMS specification D&C-B203 welding certification standard. Cages are ideal for footings, columns, pads, beams, edge beams, capping beams, tunnels, piles, pits, covers and more.
