Bar Markings - Identifying SEISMIC®
All SEISMIC® Grade 500E and Grade 300E products by Pacific Steel are rolled with our unique bar markings to assist in identification on site.
- Deformed bars or coils have our product brand, 'SEISMIC', rolled into the bar surface.
- Plain bars/coils (as typically used in by mesh manufacturers) have either 2 Dots, or a Dot and 2 Dashes
To ensure all the steel on your site is made by Pacific Steel to our local standards, be sure to look for either our rolled SEISMIC® brand, or the Dot/Dash combinations.
300E or 500E Grades
Our unique bar marking allows users to quickly identify if their product is a Pacific Steel SEISMIC® grade 300E or 500E product.
On Plain Bar or Coil users will see either 2 dots, or a dot and 2 dashes. The former identifies a Pacific Steel Grade 300E with the latter identifying a Pacific Steel grade 500E plain bar/coil.
On Deformed Bar or Coil users will also see 2 horizontal lines joining two deformations followed by a gap of two missing deformations, or without a gap. Products with the gap are grade 500E, and those without are grade 300E.
