Rebar & Wire Mesh

Steel has been used in construction since the late 1800’s.  Builders quickly discovered that its strength is greatly increased when embedded in concrete.  Now we regularly use steel and concrete together in nearly all construction projects. This encompasses everything from massive stadiums to small sidewalks.  The two main types of steel used in poured concrete are rebar and wire mesh.  

Rebar is a steel rod that is generally milled in 20′ lengths.  The common sizes range from 3/8″ to 1″ in diameter.  At D&L we generally stock plenty of 1/2″ and 5/8″ bar as well as some 3/4″ bar.  Other sizes can be special ordered if needed.  The main uses of rebar are for vertical support in poured concrete walls, horizontal reinforcement in concrete floors, and bridge construction.  At D&L, we also have the capability of cutting and bending rebar custom to a contractor’s needs.  
Wire mesh is mostly used for reinforcement in concrete floors and driveways.  It consists of steel wire rods welded together on a grid.  The grids are commonly spaced at 6 inches both directions and are sold in sheets or rolls.  D&L stocks 5′ by 10′ sheets of both 10 gauge and 6 gauge wire mesh.  These are the 2 most common sizes required by engineers for most general construction projects.
