What is Steel Fixing?
Find out why steelwork is key to your new construction project in Sydney
The process of steel fixing is to install rebar (reinforced steel bars) in such a way that it will support the structural integrity of the concrete. If concrete were to lay on its own, there is a high chance that it could collapse. The steel rebar and steel mesh are tied together and spaced out in accordance with the structural engineers plans. This is important to the strength of the structure, if the rebar is placed in the wrong way, it may not support the concrete enough.
Also named black bar, this is by far the most commonly used rebar around today. Carbon steel rebar is used for its versatility; however, it is known for its rate of corrosion.
It corrodes faster than other forms of rebar and is not recommended for use in areas that experience high levels of humidity. It also should not be used on projects that may be subject to water contact.
Essentially corrosion-resistant carbon steel rebar, Epoxy-coated rebar is the same as black bar yet layered with an epoxy coating. This type of rebar is made specifically to resist water and corrosion damage.
It provides between 70 to 1500 times the resistance compared to non-epoxy coated carbon steel rebar. This is impressive; however, the coating is expensive and very delicate so should only be used when there is a high risk of water damage.
This form of rebar is not as resistant its epoxy coated competitor, roughly 40 times more resistant than original carbon steel, however, it is more robust. In this sense, galvanized may be the better option due to the durability, even when considering water damage.
Cost is a factor as this type of rebar is 40% more on average than epoxy-coated, but if you are looking for durability, galvanized rebar may be your answer.
GFRP is an impressive rebar, in fact, when it comes to corrosion, there is nothing that can compete. Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer does not corrode at all, so you have peace of mind that there can never be water damage and general durability is unquestionably top quality.
The obvious drawback to this type of rebar is the cost. It is roughly 10 times the price of epoxy-coated rebar, however, this is only per pound. GFRP is significantly lighter than its carbon steel competitor so the cost is actually brought down to roughly double. For the quality material that you are provided with, this may be worth the extra cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
In construction, steel bars (also called rebar) and steel mesh are positioned and secured in reinforced concrete to strengthen buildings and other structures. Steel fixers work with the design of a structure closely to ensure the safety and security of the building. For more information and to receive a quote, call G-Force Constructions today!
Rebar is short for reinforcing bar. It is a steel bar or mesh of wires that are built into the concrete of a structure to provide more strength under tension. They are extremely important to the integrity of a building. If only concrete was used in some larger structures, there is a high potential that the building could collapse under stress.
When undergoing any new construction project, make sure you contact the experts in steel fixing. G-Force Constructions will always be on hand to professionally carry out your steel fixing work, with satisfaction guaranteed.
To show the amount of tensile strength that rebar has, it must be graded. This is in terms of pounds per inch. The low-end grading of a typical rebar is grade 33. When we move up to grade 40, we are looking at roughly at a yield strength of 40,000 psi and a tensile strength of 60,000 psi.
If you have a project in mind, you need an experienced steel fixer. Luckily, at G-Force Constructions, we are the experts. Call today to organise a quote, trust that we will get the job done.
Simply put, the process of producing the concrete is where it gets its strength. When the cement paste and water is mixed together with the aggregates, the paste coats the aggregate all over its surface. Hydration then occurs, this causes the paste to solidify and gives the concrete its strength.
However, as strong as concrete is, steel fixing is still needed in all sorts of structures to give reinforcement. For more information, enquire at G-Force Constructions today!
