Besides the widely and traditionally used ground slab reinforcement, BRC Wire Mesh became an important reinforcement in modern construction. It is now widely used in all different types of construction and in most structural members such as:
· Retaining Walls
· Precast Elements
· Mat Foundations
· Silos, Pipes
· Suspended Slab
· Canal Lining and Culverts
Also in moderate size housing projects, BRC MESH is the major reinforcement used. This saves time and material due to the quick fixing of mesh and the high strength of the mesh steel.
BRC MESH is produced using high yield strength - drawn deformed wires to BS4482 : 2005, ASTM A1064 or DIN488 and in accordance with BS4483:2005 or ASTM A1064 M standard. (Minimum yield strength of 485 - 515 N/mm2). BRC Mesh comes in standard size. If special sizes could be produced upon client's request BRC Has the capability of producing mesh with wires diameters ranging from 5 to 12mm with various sheet sizes and openings. The table below gives details of wire sizes, weights and steel areas per metre width for BRC special and standard sheets.

For a wider usage of Welded Wire Mesh, in all structural elements of construction, Bridges, Foundations, Columns, Beams, Retaining Walls and New Jersey Barriers, BRC Arabia has the capabilities of producing suitable Engineering Welded Wire Mesh, with wire sizes upto 12mm and with different sizes of mesh sheets upto 3.30 m width and upto 10.00 m length. Also wire mesh bending facility is available

d* means double wires of the same diameter. Sometimes, instead of placing the wires in a single formation, to obtain a given cross sectional area, they are placed in double formation but with a spacing twice as large so that the same cross sectional area is obtained. If the spacing remains the same, the cross sectional area obtained is consequently double that of a single wire.
