Did you know?


In the Philippines, the local term for rebars is “kabilya” but it may also be referred to by engineers and site personnel as reinforcing steel bars, deformed bars (debars) or concrete reinforcements. The PNS 49 is the national rebar standard, it details the technical specifications of rebars per grade, class, and size.

Confused with the multitudes of international rebar standards out there?

Check out the comparison charts we’ve made! We finished the comparison of the Philippines steel bars standard with both the international American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A615 and A706 standards, as well as with the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) G 3112.
