Welded Mesh Fabric Reinforcement

Welded Mesh Fabric Reinforcement is manufactured using cold-rolled deformed wire, electrically resistance welded at the intersections of the longitudinal and transverse wires at the required mesh spacing with minimal loss of strength and cross-sectional area.

Welded Mesh Fabric is specified and manufactured according to SANS 1024 Standard Specifications making for easy site identification, quality control and management.

Welded Mesh Fabric is generally used in surface beds (concrete floor slabs on fill) and road pavements, mesh can also be used in suspended floor slabs, concrete retaining walls, box culverts and drains, precast stadium seating, tilt-up wall panels to name a few.

Product Features

  • Using welded mesh drastically speeds up the construction process
  • Welded mesh is available in wide range of wire diameters each suited for a particular reinforcing design application
  • Depending on job requirements welded mesh can be designed either in flat sheets, rolls or bent to suit
  • The deformed wire used in the production of welded mesh improves concrete adhesion. The wire has a minimum proof stress of 485MPa and a tensile strength of 510MPa as per BS4482 Standard Specification requirements
  • Welded mesh can be used at higher stresses than that of high tensile rebar, resulting in an 8% overall material saving
  • Due to its rigid nature, concrete cover can be controlled more accurately on site
  • Welded mesh is manufactured in strict accordance to SANS1024 Standard Specifications as well as to international standard specifications on request
  • Where there is a significant amount of repetition, conventional bar reinforcement can be substituted with pre-manufactured designed mesh resulting in easier controls, speed of installation, reducing offcuts and wastage.

    Hard Drawn Wire

    Hard Drawn Wire is manufactured from low carbon wire rod through a cold-rolled reduction process that increases hardness, tensile strength, proof stress and at the same time rolling a deformed pattern onto the wire.

    Hard Drawn Wire is produced to BS4482 standard specifications where the required ultimate tensile strength (UTS) is 510MPa with a minimum proof stress of 485MPa. Hard Drawn Wire is available in strapped coils or supplied straightened and cut to length.

    Coil weights: 500kg; 1200kg; 2000kg (Approximate)
    Bar lengths: 2400mm; 6000mm; 12000mm; 13000mm
