Different Types of Steel Reinforcement for Concrete Construction

Concrete is a versatile and highly useful material for construction but it has naturally weak tensile strength. The best solution around this is to use concrete reinforcement steel. There are different kinds of steel reinforcement suitable for different concrete structures. Here at Western Sydney Building Supplies, you can choose from steel mesh reinforcement, steel reinforcing bars, pool steel, stirrups, and many more.

Choosing the Best Steel Reinforcement

In Australia, the two types of steel reinforcement that are most commonly used in concrete construction projects are the mesh and the rebar. They both provide support to the concrete structure and help prevent the formation of crevices and cracks.  

Mesh is typically used for residential construction, like in driveways and walkways. They are easy to use and are highly recommended for DIY work. Rebar, on the other hand, is used mostly for much larger concrete constructions like commercial buildings. The thicker dimensions and larger space provide better support for walls and flooring.  

Special Reinforcement for Swimming Pools

Just like any concrete structure, swimming pools require extra tensile and compressive strength from steel reinforcement. But pools typically have curves so regular steel bars won’t do. For this, you need the bendable S12 pool steel that is designed particularly for concrete pools.
