Where steel reinforcement of a slab is required for structural reasons, the specification will more than likely require high-tensile steel bars as well as fabric mesh, and the design should be undertaken by a qualified engineer. Steel mesh comes in a wide array of profiles with varying mesh sizes and wire sizes as indicated in the table below.
The most commonly specified steel fabrics for paving works are A142 (6mm wires), A193 (7mm wires) and A252 (8mm wires). A142 mesh is often used in 100mm thick light-use slabs such as paths, driveways and garage bases, while A252 is normally associated with heavier-duty 150-200mm thick slabs, with A193 used in either. In light-use applications, a single layer of fabric may be used, but in heavier jobs, two layers are used "top and bottom".
There must always be a minimum of 50mm cover over steel reinforcement, both above, below and around . The fabric is supported from beneath at regular intervals by Hystools, Wire ring spacers, concrete bar spacers, Grade Plate Spacers which are purpose made for use with the sheets of Mesh fabric. . These spacers are placed roughly every 600mm or so, sufficient to carry the fabric without allowing it to sag unacceptably.

SCS heavy-duty concrete square bars are manufactured in 1 metre lengthsa from 20mm up to 100mm. Fixing costs are greatly reduced as the bars can simply be laid on the formwork or ground floor sub-base prior to the loading of the reinforcement cage. Other applications include their use as kickers and formwork spacers.
Flat based , double and triple cover concrete spacers are designed for use on both vertical and horizontal applications. The flat base provides additional support and stability where the weight of reinforcement is high.

High Tensile Rebar is available from us in a number of standard rebar sizes in straight lengths. What is Rebar? This product is a standard reinforcing steel rod that is used as a tension device in concrete structures to strengthen and hold the concrete together. It is incredibly versatile and very long lasting. By being cast into structures, it effectively counteracts the poor tensile strength of concrete. It is able to be cut to desired size and welded into position. For any further assistance with this product, or any in our range, please speak to a member of our expert team on 01423 331600

MBT couplers require neither bar end preparation to form threads nor bar rotation to effect installation. The bars are supported within the coupler by two serrated saddles. As a series of lockshear bolts are tightened to a predetermined torque, they are embedded into the bar. At the same time the saddles bite into both the bar and the shell of the coupler. Installation is complete when the heads of all of the bolts are sheared off. The lockshear bolts on sizes 10mm to 20mm can be tightened using a ratchet wrench. For larger sizes a nut runner is recommended. Impact tools must not be used. MBT couplers can be used to join imperial, plain round or deformed reinforcing bars. MBT Couplers For Rebar Prices :

The ALC Alligator Couplers are used for splicing any grade or profile of reinforcing bar. These couplers are made for reinforcement steel with diameters in the range of 10mm to 40mm. Connection is made by inserting bars into both ends of the coupler. The breaking bolts are then screwed by hand and tightened by ratchet wrench until bolts shear off. These couplers can be used in particular cases to replace the damaged reinforcements with new ones and to connect to the old structure. ALC Alligator Couplers Price -:

Eazistrip Reinforcement Continuity Systems are designed to maintain continuity of reinforcement at construction joints in concrete. Formwork design is simplified and there is no need to drill shuttering. Each unit consists of a galvanised steel casing which is dimpled to provide an effective concrete bond. Pre-bent bars are housed within the box and are secured by a protective cover. When the cover is removed the bars can be straightened ready for lapping onto the main reinforceme : Box made from galvanized steel-sheet , The bars are bent in accordance with standard DIN 488. Box-length. approx. 1,25 m. Other stirrup-types and Diameters on request.
