A steel fixer, also known as a reinforcing ironworker or ironworker, is a skilled tradesperson who specializes in the assembly and installation of steel reinforcement bars, also called rebar, in concrete structures. Steel fixers play a vital role in the construction industry, ensuring that reinforced concrete structures are strong, durable, and capable of withstanding various loads and environmental conditions.

Reading Blueprints: Steel fixers interpret construction drawings and blueprints to understand the layout, dimensions, and specifications of the reinforced concrete structures they will be working on. This includes identifying the placement and configuration of rebar according to engineering and architectural plans.

Cutting and Bending Rebar: Steel fixers use specialized tools and equipment to cut, bend, and shape steel reinforcement bars according to the required dimensions and specifications. This may involve using rebar cutters, benders, and tying machines to prepare the rebar for installation.
