Devoran Metals hold large stocks of CARES approved high yield reinforcement bar to BS4449:2005+A3 in diameters up to 40mm. Our ongoing commitment to investment in the latest automated technology ensures that we are able to respond quickly and efficiently to the needs of our customers.
Reinforcing bar is available ex stock in standard lengths up to 15m, or cut & bent to a range of shape codes as specified by customers’ requirements. All cut & bent reinforcement conforms to British Standard BS8666:2005 the ‘Specification for scheduling, dimensioning, bending and cutting of steel reinforcement for concrete’.
“Flexibility, productivity, safety and quality”
Recent investment in automated technology includes the purchase of the MEP Mini Syntax 16. Unlike existing machines, the Mini Syntax boasts two patented systems. The first, an AFS straightening system that eliminates the effect of wire rotation on its own axis creating closed stirrups and straight bars every time; the second, a secondary feeding unit that allows the production of shapes bent on both sides utilising one bending unit instead of two. What results is a machine that produces the maximum level of flexibility, productivity, safety and product quality.
