OUR MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS

TOP-NOTCH CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL  SPECIFICATIONS OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY!REINFORCE CONCRETE FOR STRUCTURAL FRAME. Reinforce concrete is a composite material in which concrete's relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of steel reinforcement having higher tensile strength. It can withstand catastrophic loading and with lesser movement of structures, buildings have a longer life expectancy.  Industry studies also prove that compared to steel construction, concrete buildings have decreased heating and cooling expenses and also have a good acoustic performance.  Concrete is also naturally fire-resistant, concrete buildings typically qualify for reduced...

IMPORTANCE OF CONSTRUCTION SPECIFICATIONS

STEEL BARS AND ITS USAGE

Steel bars are the most common widely used reinforcing material for most construction of varioys structures. Steel is considered as an excellent partner of concrete in resisting both tension and compression forces. Comparatively, steel is ten times stronger than concrete in carrying compression load and 100 times stronger in resisting tensile stresses. The design of reinforced concrete assumed that concrete and steel acts together in carrying load in the state of simultaneous deformation, otherwise, due to excessive load impose upon it steel bars might slip out from the concrete in...

Loads that are being carried by steel, concrete and wood has to be transmitted to the ground, but it need a transfer device called...
