Graphical Construction Glossary >> Concrete and Concreting. >> >> Concrete Rebar
Unlike the wrought iron bolts and straps as used by medieval builders, modern rebar is fully embedded into the concrete mass.
Rebar in it's smaller diameter sizes leaves the steel rolling mills and is transported to smaller regional retail factories in rolls. Larger diameter bars are transported in straight lengths.
All retail rebar outlets provide a full package of taking off the rebar quantities from the job documentation and the supply and delivery of the cut and bent steel to the work site.
