## BN Products sponsors the Rebar Calc

Starting this month, BN Products-USA is sponsoring a web tool that can be used by you and your customers. BN Products has brought you the finest **rebar** and related construction tools for decades, and we are now the proud sponsor of a **software **tool to help you make professional grade estimates with the Rebar Calculator at vCalc.com. The Rebar Calculator estimates the length and weight of rebar in slabs and walls. The Rebar Calc is available over the Internet for **free** via your desktop computer or on your smart phone. Since it’s a web based tool, you don’t need to download anything. Just go to the website and make your calculations. The Rebar Calculator contains equations and data used in working with reinforcement bars (rebar) in concrete slabs. The formulas calculate materials needed for rectangular, circular and irregular shaped slabs. (para español, HAGA CLIC AQUÍ) . In all, there are 11 sub pages that you should be aware of when talking with your clients and customers:* Irregular Shaped Slab*

- Main Rebar Calc page: CLICK HERE
- The following Sub pages click throughs:
- Length of Rebar in a Grid: Computes the linear feet of rebar in one or more mats of rebar.
- Weight of Rebar in a Grid: Computes the weight of rebar in one or more mats of rebar.
- Weight of a Length of Rebar: Computes weight from a rebar size and any length.
- Area of a Concrete Slab: Computes the area based on length and width of a rectangular slab.
- Volume of a Concrete Slab: Compute the cubic yards of concrete needed for a slab.
- Weight of a Concrete Slab: Computes the approximate weight of concrete in a slab.
- Weight of Rebar Grid and Concrete Slab: Computes the combined slab and rebar weight.
- Rebar - Irregular Shaped Slab: Estimates the amount of rebar in an irregular shaped slab.
- Volume of a Circular Slab: Computes the cubic yards of concrete in a circular slab.
- Wall – Rebar, Concrete and Forms: Computes the amount of rebar, concrete and material for forms needed for a concrete wall.
- Rebar Lapping Length: Computes the length of each lapping based on the rebar size and a lapping factor.

The Rebar Calculator lets you:

- Choose the shape of your slab. Most slabs are rectangles with square corners, but the Rebar Calc also has rebar and concrete formulas for circular slabs and irregular slabs (see diagrams).
- Enter the dimensions of the slab in numerous units. The default is in feet and inches. But you can also enter the dimensions of your slab in meters and centimeters.
- Choose the inset and rebar spacing.
- Choose the number of rebar mats.
- Choose a rebar size. Rebar size is used in computing the weight of rebar in a grid, but size is also a key component when computing the length due to the rebar size effect on the length of lapping.
- Enter a lapping factor

Rebar length is returned in feet, but with a click of a button, this can be changed to meters or other length units. Rebar weight is returned in pounds with automatic conversions to kilograms and short and metric tons.

The Rebar Calculator also has concrete functions to help you compute:

- Surface Areas of slabs in square feet, yards and meters
- Volume of Concrete in slabs in cubic yards and meters
- Amount of plywood or OSB needed for wood forms for poured concrete walls. Choose Forms Area as the Output option.

You can find the Rebar Calc if you **CLICK HERE** or if you Google “Rebar Calc” where you’ll see vCalc’s Rebar Calc high in the list. The Rebar Calc is also available in Spanish.

BN Products is committed to providing the best tools to help make your operations as efficient as possible. The Rebar Calc is simply another step in this process. If you desire additional functions in the Rebar Calculator, don’t hesitate to let us know, or mention BN Products and make a suggestion to the engineers at vCalc through the Contact Us button at the bottom of any page.
