Where steel reinforcement of a slab is necessary for architectural reasons, the specification will most likely require high-tensile steel bars along with fabric mesh. Also, the design should be approved by an engineer who is a qualified one. Steel wire mesh comes in a wide array of profiles with varying wire mesh sizes.
For paving works, the most commonly specified steel fabrics are A142 (6 mm wires), A193 (7 mm wires) and A252 (8 mm wires). Thick light-use slabs such as garbage bases, paths and driveways, A142 mesh is used most of the times. For heavier-duty 150-200 mm thick slabs, A252 is suggested. A193 can be used for either of these applications. In light-use applications, a single layer of fabric may be used, but in heavier jobs, two layers – “top and bottom” are used for added strength and durability.
A minimum of 50 mm cover over steel reinforcement, both above, below and around should be there. Hystools, Wire ring spacers, concrete bar spacers, Grade Plate Spacers, purpose made for use with the sheets of Mesh fabric, support the fabric from beneath at regular intervals. . These spacers are placed roughly at a distance of every 600 mm or so, and are sufficient to carry the fabric without allowing it to sag unacceptably.
|Mesh Fabric||Sheet Size||Wire|
|A142 Mesh Fabric||2.4mt x 4.8mt||6mm|
|A193 Mesh Fabric||2.4mt x 4.8mt||7mm|
|A252 Mesh Fabric||2.4mt x 4.8mt||8mm|
|A393 Mesh Fabric||2.4mt x 4.8mt||10mm|
Bharat Wire Mesh offers reinforcing concrete mesh. We deal with wholesale companies, construction companies, farm owners and suburban areas owners.
The diameter of Welded mesh reinforcement bars is from 3 to 40 mm and the same are located in mutually perpendicular direction, forming a square or rectangular shape mesh. The opening size of the reinforcing mesh ranges from 50 mm to 250 mm. The heavy reinforcing mesh has the diameter rods of 12 mm and above, and light meshes have the diameter of the rods from 3 mm to 12 mm.
When deciding to choose a wire mesh, material, mesh sheet size, mesh opening, the purpose of the same must be taken into account. For example, the thin wire mesh is suitable if you need concrete mesh for plastering.
The reinforcing steel mesh is used to enhance reinforced concrete structures and has become an integral component of the same.
In the civil and industrial construction, special attention and increased demands are placed on the quality of the foundation, as the operational safety and durability of structures completely depends on it.
Considered the most popular type of wire mesh. it is referred to the building grid and used as a reinforcing element in the construction of masonry buildings and reinforced concrete. It is known to increase the strength of the structure and quality of plastering work. Steel wire diameter of 3 to 5 mm is used for manufacturing masonry reinforcement wire mesh. The mesh size is between 50 mm to 250 mm.
This mesh is packaged in a roll form. It is highly convenient for delivery as the diameter of the wire used is relatively small in size. The length of such a mesh size is not more than two meters, which facilitates its easy transportation.
Reinforcement mesh is commonly used in road works to strengthen the road surface and is made from stainless steel with diameter of 3 mm, 4 mm, or 5 mm. Its composition with low carbon content allows qualitative strengthening of road terrain. The reinforcing road mesh is the most cost-effective option for construction and repair of bridges, roads, and large industrial plants. Usually, road mesh opening is available in sizes 50 × 50 mm, 100 × 100 mm, 125 × 125 mm, 150 × 150 mm. Its sheet sizes are mainly 1.5 × 2 m, 2 × 3 m, 2 × 6 m.
Trench mesh is long, narrow sheets of concrete reinforcing mesh, mainly used for paths, trenches or other narrow spaces. Its longitudinal wires (main wire) are 7.6 mm or 15.6 mm in diameter, and cross wire are 4 mm or 4.77 mm in diameter. Trench rib mesh is available in 6.0 m length.
Brick wall reinforced mesh is also named as concrete slab mesh. It is a kind of welded wire mesh panel for reinforced concrete uses. It covers ladder mesh reinforcement and truss mesh reinforcement.
Mine mesh is a grid which is placed on the surface of the mine’s walls. This mesh retains the walls against falling rocks and ensures the safety of the miners during drilling, and also protects them from loose scaling in the mines. It is manufactured to the desired exact specifications to meet the demands of the mining industry. Flush cut edges improve handling, installation, and maintenance of safety standards. These welded steel mine mesh are available in a range of sizes and configurations to cater to most individual mine requirements.
You will find yourself working in a true partnership that results in an incredible experience, and an end product that is the best.
