What Is An Iron Rod?
An iron rod is a length of iron that is mainly used in construction work (usually heavy construction projects). The iron rod is intertwined with reinforced concrete to strengthen the building.

There are several types of iron rods that are used in Ghana. But, below are some of the most popular and most used ones.
The type of iron rod you choose will be determined by the type of project you are constructing. This means that the type of iron rod that will be used for constructing a gutter will be different from the one used for constructing a stadium.
Mild Steel Bars
The mild steel bars are used for tensile stress of Reinforced Cement Concrete slab beams in reinforced cement concrete work. This type of iron rod has a plain surface and has round sections of diameter from 6 to 50 mm.
Mild steel bars are manufactured in long lengths and can easily be cut and bent without damaging the iron rod.
Deformed Steel Bars
Deformed steel bars minimize slippage in concrete and increases the bond between two (2) materials. Usually, they are produced in 6 mm to 50 mm diameter sections.
This type of iron rod has more tensile stress than the mild steel bars and are usually the recommended choice for structural engineers.
