<p style="margin:2px !important;">Structural Steel ICS # 77.140.15</p>
Description of Content

This document specifies requirements for carbon-steel wire and welded wire reinforcement produced from hot-rolled rod to be used for the reinforcement of concrete. The steel wire is cold-worked, drawn or rolled, plain (non-deformed, as-drawn or galvanized), or deformed. Welded wire reinforcement is made from plain or deformed wire, or a combination of plain and deformed wire.

Objectives & Rationale
<p style="margin:2px !important;">Structural steel is considered the ideal choice for constructing buildings by contractors, architects, designers and engineers. It offers benefits for characteristics such as durability, strength and temperature resistance. Building structures must be designed to withstand the weight, loads and environmental pressures that are placed on them and so the safety and durability of buildings and structures must be a vital consideration at all times.</p>
Relevant Documents

A notice of the Standard Specification for Carbon-Steel Wire and Welded Wire Reinforcement, Plain and Deformed, for Concrete will appear in The Jamaica Gazette Supplement - Proclamations, Rules and Regulations.
