Rebar (reinforcing bar) is used to reinforce concrete structures. A stick of rebar is categorized by a number (i.e. #4). The number represents the number of 1/8ths inches in diameter of the bar. For example, #4 Rebar is 4/8" or 1/2" in diameter, #3=3/8", #8=8/8" or 1" and so on... The largest I've specified was a #11 bar for a building at Glenridge. That's heavy duty reinforcing!
