Available in 3.6m Long x 2.0m Wide sheets, 50 per bundle.
Used for the reinforcement of concrete structures and floor slabs. Supplied in standard sheet sizes of 2.4m x 4.8m. Flying ends are available for ‘A’ type meshes, reducing the build up of lap depth.
Can also be pre bent to your requirements. Stainless steel meshes also available.
Reinforcement mesh is a hugely versatile reinforcement product, being widely used for a variety of applications. It is predominantly used as reinforcing fabric in concrete slabs; being immersed in concrete and vastly increasing the structural rigidity of a construction. Steel mesh fabric has a similar coefficient of thermal expansion to concrete, meaning that with temperature fluctuations, both concrete the steel embedded in it expand and contract at similar rates. This makes it an ideal material to help reinforce concrete structures.
For domestic applications such as pathways, driveways and garden groundwork, the most commonly used mesh fabric is A142. A142 is manufactured with 6mm longitudinal and cross wires, and is relatively light and easy to maneuver into place. Because the expected loads placed on the concrete slab are low, relatively speaking, there is not as much need for heavy duty mesh.
For more heavier duty domestic applications, A193 and A252 are advised. Examples of these applications would be house extensions and high load driveways.
