Reinforcing steel (also called rebar or concrete steel) is used to strengthen reinforced concrete. The concrete bar steel or the concrete steel mats are filled with concrete in order to achieve the high rigidity of the reinforced concrete components.
The use of reinforcing steel is a frequently used alternative to steel construction.
The properties of reinforcing steel are regulated in the EN 10080 standard.
Ribbed concrete bar steel is available in diameter 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 26, 30, 34 and 40 mm. Hot-rolled reinforcing steel as coil is available in diameter 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 mm.
