DEFORMED Reinforcing Bar
Deformed steel reinforcing bar has a rougher surface in order to further enhance the bond between the steel bar and the concrete used.
Deformed rebar has a ribbed surface and is used typically to apply tension within reinforced concrete structures because it has a higher tensile strength than regular reinforced steel bar.
Benefits Of Deformed Steel Bar
Why Deformed Rebar Is So Effective
The main difference between deformed reinforcing steel bar and regular round steel bar is the surface texture which enables concrete to grip the steel bar more effectively. Once the concrete has set, it also means that the steel bar is much less likely to slip or shift within the concrete as well creating additional stability.
In fact, deformed bar is rated to 500MPa (D500N) as opposed to round (smooth) reinforcing bar which is 250MPa (D250N).

Projects Using Deformed Reinforcing Bar
Maryborough Rail Upgrade
The first of its kind in Australia, with the railway tracks being built off the ground to allow room for working pits underneath the tracks.
Gold Coast HOTA Gallery
The new Gold Coast HOTA Gallery in partnership with Hansen Yuncken.
The Scone Bypass supplied with 1300 tonnes of deformed reinforcing bar.
Indooroopilly State High School
Indooroopilly State High School project required 220 tonnes of deformed bar for a multi-level accommodation building.
