Re: concrete reinforcing steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


Grade 60 #3 and #4 reinforcing has been readily available for a long time.  You would have to check with your local rebar supplier to see if there is any real cost savings in specifying Grade 40.  I gave up with the duel grade call outs many years ago but it may still be popular in the low end commercial world.

concrete reinforcing steel

For as long as I can remember, #3 and #4 deformed bars were typically grade 40, while #5 bars and larger were grade 60.  Is that still the case?  or is this something local like here in the SF bay area?
