Reinforcing Bar

Reinforcing bar is the core of our business. We offer a complete range of both grade 300E and 500E plain, deformed and threaded reinforcing steel. Each grade has a variety of diameters available.

All the steel supplied by Fletcher Reinforcing is produced in New Zealand by Pacific Steel. Seismic® reinforcing bar, made by Pacific Steel, is made specifically to meet New Zealand’s unique seismic conditions and is found in commercial, industrial, infrastructure and residential buildings.

Test Certificates are available for every production batch of this product.


Seismic® Grade 300E Bar

Higher ductility, lower tensile strength Grade 300E plain carbon steel for the reinforcing of concrete available as plain and deformed bars. This steel meets the demanding requirements of the seismic structural design methods employed in New Zealand as required by local Standards.

Grade 300 steel is identifiable by registered bar marks and can be hot or cold bent (for procedures refer to NZS 3109)
