Our last blog described the TMT steel bars and its importance as reinforcement for the construction of commercial buildings. More specifically, it described the standard IS 1786:2008 that every reinforced steel bar should conform to. The IS standard defines certain guidelines that must be followed when manufacturing the reinforced steel bar.
Reinforced steel is the most important component in the construction of buildings. Its multiple advantages in terms of strength and ductility are the sole reason for its increasing popularity and demand. Different versions of reinforced steel bars were introduced such as Mild Steel, HYSD etc. Each had their particular advantages that made it better than its predecessors. However, with the demand for more strength led to introducing stronger and better-reinforced steel bars. One such example is the TMT steel bars.
There was a time when homes and commercial buildings in India was built with unprocessed iron rods and concrete slabs. The problem with this process was that rods would soon begin to rust away much more earlier than expected. This, in turn, affects the stability of the structures in the long run. Making them unsafe, unreliable, prone to frequent repairs, leakage due to rains and general dissatisfaction of the owner. TMT bars is a solution for all the above-mentioned problems, they are made according to universal standards of strength, rigidity and flexibility. The arrival of TMT bars has made structures more safe and reliable across acts of god. TMT Steel bars have also changed how we use concrete, instead of slabs, we now use concrete bars for better overall results.
