Round Reinforcing Steel Bar
Round reinforcing steel bar is a useful product for many residential, commercial, and infrastructure building projects.
It’s most common use is as a dowel between an existing slab and a newly poured slab to ensure the structural integrity is present throughout the entire slab. It can also be used to make ligatures and they are often present within footings, piers, columns, partitions and precast concrete sections.
Benefits Of Round Reinforcing Steel Bar
Why Round Reinforcing Steel Bar Is So Effective
Round reinforcing bar is an effective solution for a variety of applications; including dowels, ligatures and spirals.
Dowel applications are almost always round reinforcing bar, this is due to the need for the dowel to allow movement within the slab to prevent any concrete cracking.
Round bar is often the designer and processor preference for spiral wraps in prefabricated piles or columns, as it forms a spiral easier than deformed bar.
Often round reinforcing steel bar is used for fitments primarily in non-structural applications. In these cases its primary focus is to hold the trench mesh or reinforcing bars in position. These footing systems are designed as a beam on an elastic foundation to ensure a flexible slab system as the ground heaves and sags in wet weather and droughts.
