Readymade Steel Bars
In order to ease the complicated practice of requisitioning of steel bars, bending them to shape and as stirrups, keeping an eye on the bar binder gang that they cause minimum wastage of steel by making judicious cutting of steel lengths, steel manufacturers in India have now come up with innovative idea of providing steel bars cut and bent to required shapes. The bar binder gang just lays the shaped bars in position and ties them up.
Once the drawings showing steel reinforcement details are ready, these drawings can be directly handed over to the steel manufacturers. The steel manufacturer prepares a bar bending schedule from these drawings and then provides requisite number of cut & bent bars of each diameter, each shape and each length to the customer. Thus customised steel bar orders are fulfilled by the steel manufacturers. If the buyer has got prepared the bar bending schedule from his designer then the steel manufacturer doesn’t need the drawings but prepares and supplies steel bars as per given bar bending schedule.
Biggest advantage of buying readymade steel bars of required shape and diameter is that all the wastage in steel that happens at site is avoided. There is no need to establish a bar cutting and bending station.
