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. Consequently, we have the PNS 49 as the national rebar standard. To explain, it details the technical specifications of rebars per grade, class, and size and determines if a rebar is of standard quality.
Confused with the multitudes of international rebar standards out there?
Then, check out the comparison charts we’ve made! For this purpose, we made a comparison of the Philippines steel bars standard with both the international American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A615 and A706 standards. Moreover, we also made a comparison with the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) G 3112. Certainly, you can visit us regularly for more updates or contact us for more information.
