Reinforced Concrete

What is Reinforced Concrete ?

Reinforced concrete is a special type of concrete as it contains steel reinforcement, usually consisting of steel bars to make the structure sturdier and more resistant to damage. There are different types of reinforced concrete slabs that can provide high thermal comfort and are easy to install. Reinforcement is essential in various construction projects due to its versatility, adaptability, and resistance to corrosion and fire.

Another benefit is its ruggedness as it is not easily damaged compared to standard concrete, which is quite expensive to maintain in the long run. Usually, reinforced concrete is used for rooftops, foundations, and buildings. It is even used in irrigation canals, drains, precast structures, and other structures that need a strong type of concrete.
