Reinforcing steel is the core of our business. We offer a complete range of both grade 300 and 500 plain and deformed reinforcing steel. Each grade has a variety of diameters available. All the steel supplied by Fletcher Reinforcing is produced in New Zealand by Pacific Steel.

Fletcher Reinforcing supplies almost every type of reinforcing mesh used in New Zealand.

Super Ductile™ is a new, 500E grade of reinforcing mesh designed to withstand the forces of seismic activity to provide stronger reinforcement to concrete foundations. It has been developed specifically to meet the new residential building standards requirements that will come into effect in February 2012.

Development of the product involved an unwavering focus on research, in collaboration with Pacific Steel, as well as independent testing by SGS.

Super Ductile™ comes in three sizes – 5.5mm, 6.1mm and 7.5mm – with a gold tag for easy identification on-site. Super Ductile™ is available at PlaceMakers and leading trade merchants.
