Reinforcing

Reinforcing Steel Products and Installation

Reinforcing & Mesh Solutions (RMS) supplies, cuts and bends reinforcing to the latest standards and adheres to regular and consistent quality checks to meet customer requirements. We supply reinforcing steel in various specifications range from 250MPA to 500MPA.

Cutting & Bending Standards SANS 282:Edition 6

Bending Schedules

RMS will cut and bend the bar according to the bending schedules supplied by the customer. All bending schedules refer to the standard Shape Codes as per the table shown:

SANS 282: Edition 6

  • Note 1: use shape code 99 for all other shapes. A dimensioned sketch of the shape shall be given in the bending schedule.
  • Note 2: Radii of all bends are standard unless r is given in the bending schedule.
  • Note 3: All dimensions are external (outstide) dimensions.
