Why is Concrete Reinforced?

ADC Structural Panels

Reinforcing concrete with steel and fiber is a common and effective way to improve its strength and durability. Steel reinforcement, in the form of rebar, provides additional tensile strength to the concrete and helps to prevent cracking and breaking, while fiber reinforcement, in the form of various types of fibers, provides additional tensile strength and reduces cracking in the concrete. The benefits of reinforcing concrete with steel and fiber are numerous, including increased strength, durability, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. By choosing the right type of reinforcement for the application, concrete can be made even stronger and more durable, ensuring it will last for years to come.
