Tips For Protecting and Storing Your Rebar
A reinforcing bar, commonly known as rebar, provides strength and stability to concrete structures. While concrete is extremely strong, it can lose its integrity under tension stresses and lead to cracking and spalling, which occurs when the material starts flaking and breaking away. Rebar helps prevent concrete structures from premature cracking and flaking by absorbing and distributing the stress. However, common rebar is manufactured from unfinished tempered steel and is susceptible to rusting.

The first challenge of the day is usually the transportation of the crane itself. Thankfully, a bulk of industrial cranes are designed with easy travel in mind. Once they’re safely rolling down the road or highway, operators ensure that they avoid any overheads or bridges that would bar them entry.
