If your project requires reinforcing products, we can assist with sourcing products such as trench mesh, square mesh and deformed bar.

Mesh products

  • Trench Mesh: Trench mesh is used for residential footing trenches and is made using a variety of longitudinal wires up to 12mm in diameter. Sheets are made in 6m lengths with widths varying depending on the number of longitudinal wires, which are spaced at 100mm centres, and crosswires spaced at 300mm centres.
  • Square Mesh: Square mesh is general-purpose rebar for reinforcing flat concrete, used in floor slabs and walls. Mesh is made to order, which means our team can provide your products in different sizes to suit your needs. This variety of reinforcing steel is popular for use in slab flooring, walls, and driveways.
  • Rectangular Mesh: With similar characteristics to square mesh, rectangular mesh fulfils a similar role, however, is typically used when more strength is required in one direction, such as long, narrow floor slabs or tall walls.

Bar products

  • Plain Round Bar: Commonly utilised to manufacture ligatures used to separate top and bottom layers of mesh in concrete slabs, or as dowel bars for joining concrete sections in pavement.
  • Deformed Bar: Deformed bar is used where extra reinforcing is required to fabric sheets or trench mesh.
  • Starter Bars: Starter bars are usually made to tie reinforced masonry or concrete walls to slabs or footings, as designed by the engineer. They can be cut and bent to shape from standard deformed reinforcing bar.
  • Corner Bars: Corner bars are used to tie together two elements of a structure that are at right angles to each other, such as walls, slabs, or beams. They are most often cut and bent to shape from standard deformed reinforcing bar.
  • Ligatures: Ligatures are used to separate top and bottom layers of trench mesh in residential slabs, or for fabricating beam or column cages.
  • Swimming Pool Reinforcing Bar: Reinforcing bar for use in domestic, concrete swimming pools is easily cut and bent into shape on-site to speed up construction times. Swimming pool bar (specially formulated reinforcing bar) is particularly easy to work with and modify, allowing for total freedom of design.

Reinforcing accessories can be just as crucial to your job as reinforcing steel itself. BlueScope Distribution understands this and offers bar chairs, spacers, safety caps, jointing, lintels, polythene film, and whichever rebar accessories you need to complete your project.

  • Spacers & Chairs: Spacers and chairs for concreting provide support for reinforcing mesh and bar.
  • Slab-on-Ground Spacers: Plastic slab-on-ground spacers are suitable for supporting both reinforcing mesh and bar in slab-on-ground applications.
  • Wire Chairs: The steel-wire spacer’s legs are protected with a film of plastic ultimately preventing the wire spacer from sinking into the ground. Plastic-tipped bar chairs can be used in suspended slabs, beams, vertical walls, and slab-on-ground applications.
  • Concrete Block Spacers: Concrete block spacers feature a wide, flat base, which ensures no rolling or tilting. This product is suitable for the slab-on-ground application.
