Quality Control

Quality Assurance

FSL ensures that all quality parameters are adhered to strictly and on consistent basis. The expertise in manufacturing and quality of raw material utilities makes FSL branded steel rebars an extremely reliable product for quality conscious customers. It’s no surprise if FSL remains the first choice for construction of dams, hydro-power plants, nuclear-power plants, bridges, motorways, airports, factories, high-rise buildings, especially in Seismic Zone (earthquake zone) 2 & 3 etc.

Characteristics Affecting Quality Of Steel Rebar

Following factors affect the strength of steel rebars and its bonding with concrete.

Rib Spacing

Deformation Area

Heights of Ribs

Surface Scraps

Gap Cord


Unit Weight

Unit weight of steel rebars is another factor that can significantly affect quality of construction as well as hurt the customers pocket considerably. It can be proved that manufacturing of steel rebars under uncontrolled conditions or without required expertise produces over-size / under-size or over-weight / under-weight steel rebars. Such rebars when used in construction significantly hamper implementation of engineering-design as the weight and strength of steel rebars varies considerably.
