The styles of building mesh is in rolls and sheets. Properly placed on concrete slab on grade to hold the concrete together after cracking. It is an important ingredient in a successful floor slab. The wide range of wire sizes and spacings available make it possible to furnish almost the exact cross-sectional areas of steel required to reinforce precast products, tilt-up walls and building floors.
Structural or engineered mesh is a step beyond standard mesh. As the name implies, the spacing or "grid" of the mesh can be varied in both directions. Wire sizes in both plain and deformed wire Sheet sizes are made to fit your requirements, up to the width of the welding machine and lengths determined by handling limitations.
The advantages of using Structural mesh over other types of reinforcement include: Proper Steel Required - exact area of steel can be achieved thus eliminating unnecessary over-steeling. Proper Spacing for Proper Placement - reduces quality control problems and time. Ease and Speed of Placement - eliminates hand tying individual bars and large areas are covered with each sheet. Reduces Labor Costs - smaller crew can place and secure reinforcement in less time. Less Space Required at Job Site - material stacks, no fabrication space required and shipments can be tailored to your needs. Reduces Total Construction Time
