The Bar reinforcement in composite slabs usually takes the form of a relatively light welded fabric mesh, commonly supplemented by some bar reinforcement.

Bar reinforcement may be used to supplement the fabric mesh for various reasons such as:

  • To achieve longer fire resistance periods
  • To reinforce the slab around significant openings.
  • When additional transverse reinforcement is needed.
  • To achieve greater crack control.

Our high yield 8mm reinforcing steel bar is 100% UK sourced and manufactured to BS4449/2005 with CARES approval.
