You might have 20 years of concreting experience under your belt or you might just be planning your first DIY concreting job at home, ARC branches have got what you need to get the job done.
I like to buy local, from someone who is quick and easy to deal with.
The Connolly Expansion Joint System can be used for forming expansion joints in continuous pour applications in addition to conventional end-of-pour situations.
This Expansion Joint gains its strength from a rigid steel backing profile, with the expansion capability provided by closed cell foam adhered to the face of the metal profile.
This system provides a rigid and strong product that produces straight clean lines. The Expansion Joint is fixed in place with Connolly's renowned and patented peg and wedge fixing system making installation fast and simple and providing accurate height adjustment.
ARC supplies a comprehensive range of standard N grade, 500 MPa deformed reinforcing bar (D500N). Stock lengths are available off-the-shelf, but rebar is often supplied processed (cut, bent, threaded) or fabricated to suit the specific requirements of the project.
Specially formulated reinforcing bar for use in domestic concrete swimming pools to meet AS 2783.
Designed to be easily cut and bent into shape on site to speed up construction times and allow complete freedom of design.
Bars are 12mm diameter, grade D250N to meet AS/NZS 4671 and are available in 6 or 9m stock lengths.
These processed bars are normally used to tie reinforced masonry or concrete walls to slabs or footings, as designed by the engineer. Cut and bent to shape from standard deformed reinforcing bar, grade D500N. Common shapes are listed but others can be made to order. Meet the requirements of AS/NZS 4671.
These bars are used to tie together two elements of a structure that are at right angles to each other, such as walls, slabs or beams, as designed by the engineer. Cut and bent to shape from standard deformed reinforcing bar, grade D500N. Common shapes are listed but others can be made to order. Meet the requirements of AS/NZS 4671.
A full range of ligatures (fitments) manufactured from round reinforcing bar, grade R250N, to suit all requirements. Commonly used to separate top and bottom layers of Trench Mesh in residential slabs or for fabricating beam or column cages. Common square and rectangular shapes in 6mm and 10mm bar are listed below. Other shapes and sizes can be manufactured to order. All ligatures meet AS/NZS 4671.
This general purpose mesh is used for reinforcing flat concrete elements such as floor slabs and walls.
Square mesh is manufactured from L grade ribbed wires (D500L) that are welded together with equal spacing in both directions to form square apertures.
Square mesh is available in sheets of two sizes:

Trench Mesh is made specifically for use in residential footing trenches.
Made from grade D500L ribbed reinforcing wire, Trench Mesh is made using a variety of longitudinal wires up to 12mm diameter.
Cross wires are at 300mm centres. Sheets are made in 6m lengths, with widths varying from depending on the number of longitudinal wires. The longitudinal wires are at 100mm centres.
The product code, for example L8TM3, refers to the ductility grade (L), diameter of main wires (8) and the number of main wires (3).
Other sizes are available, so check with your local ARC Sales Representative.
Plastic slab-on-ground spacers are suitable for supporting both reinforcing mesh and bar in slab-on-ground applications.
The steel-wire spacer's legs are protected with a film of plastic. Plastic-tipped bar chairs can be used in suspended slabs, beams, vertical walls and slab on ground applications.
Metal bases are round metal plates that support wire bar chairs on soft surfaces.
