At Seibel Modern, we work with precast concrete embedments fortified with welded rebar reinforcements.
Rebar Welding is the process of fusing steel reinforcing bars (rebar) for reinforced concrete applications. These pieces have many different applications. It is categorized under welding code AWS D1.4 (Structural welding code – reinforcing steel).

Rebar Welding FAQs
How Are Jersey Barriers Connected?
Jersey Barriers have an embedded steel tube on each end. A connection key is used to link the tubes of 2 barriers together to create a temporary barrier. This connection key can be removed as needed to move the barrier when work is complete.
Why Should I Consider Concrete Embeds for my Project?
If your project involves a need for welding members to a concrete panel, or if you need a metal member
on the outer edge of a concrete structure, a concrete embed made with rebar is a good option.
What Welding Methods Can I Use for Rebar Embeds?
GMAW, FCAW and SMAW (stick welding, which we do not do at Seibel Modern)
Can You Weld Rebar?
Rebar comes in multiple grades, some are weldable, some are not. The rebar grade should have a “W”
to designate that the rebar is weldable. (Ex. A706W would be a grade classification for weldable rebar,
whereas A615 would not be weldable)
When fabricating, is important to select weldable rebar. Otherwise the rebar has a high likelihood of
cracking near the welded joint. There is also a risk that the concrete itself would crack or break because
the embedded rebar does not have the necessary tensile strength calculated for the design.
