ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock a broad range of reinforcing bars (also known as “rebar”).
These ribbed steel rods are used to reinforce concrete structures. Reinforcement is used due to its low tensile strength and consequent demand for a substitute tension device lest the structure collapse.
We cut, bend and fix reinforcing steel for all concrete structures and can deliver the pre-fixed units wherever you might need it. We supply to specification and deliver on time.
ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock quality wire and mesh products. Like reinforcing bars (rebar), reinforcing mesh is embedded in concrete to add the necessary degree of tensile strength to support large loads.
Mesh differs from rebar in that it may be used to shape structures at the same time as supporting them, but is disadvantaged by an inability to be anchored to the ground.
ASAP Steel & Pipe’s reinforcing mesh features a unique deformed wire pattern, known as the curry pattern, which facilitates superior bonding, stress-distribution and crack-width control. Our reinforcing mesh is made according to SABS standards (SANS 1024:2012).
We can size reinforced mesh to customers’ specifications when required.
