Deformed Reinforcing Bars are circular shaped solid steel bars with a ribbed profile along the length of the bar.  This profile enhances the bonding of the steel to concrete when encased.  The additional surface area of the bars and the dimpled effect increase friction and pull out forces of the bar.  This profile of steel the go to for concrete reinforcing.  All our branches stock a common range of mild steel reo bars in 500 grade mild steel.  All these stocked mild steel round bars can be cut to your sizes with no minimum size, so you only pay for what you need*. (* limits and cutting charges will apply)


Due to the wide range of applications of rebar reinforcement with ductility appropriate to earthquake-resistant concrete structures, coupled with recent investigations into the structural consequences of the relatively low ductility of cold-worked reinforcement, has led to the introduction of three ductility classes. These are distinguished in requirements by the letters ‘L’ (low), ‘N’ (normal) and ‘E’ (earthquake), placed immediately after the strength-grade number, corresponding with different minimum values for uniform elongation and maximum stress to yield stress ratio.

Common Applications

Reinforcing Steel bars are specially designed to be encased in concrete, they can be cut, formed & bent, threaded, and welded for use in :

  1. Structural Reinforcing of Concrete slabs
  2. Dowel pins for concrete repairs or joints


Edcon Steel Tips

  1. All Thread can provide similar increased pullout strength when encased in concrete.
  2. Care needs to be taken to ensure there is ample cover of concrete over the steel to prevent rust of the encased concrete.
  3. All our stores have a sleeted range of Reo Steel Bars in stock on the floor in 6000mm lengths.  
  4. Metro Stores also stock Hot Dip Galvanised Reo Bars for  dowel pins and higher corrosion resistance applications.

Surface Preparation and Coatings

Reo Bars are stocked in a Mill Finish.  Mill Finish is an uncoated, untreated finish which as the name suggests, as it comes from the steel mill.  The surface will be dirty, may be contaminated, but generally will be free form oil or chemicals.  The 500 grade mild steel flat bar will also, in many cases, have a mill scale - a thin flaky substance that is a by product of the hot rolling process.
