Builders Mesh

Builders mesh

With more than 15 years of experience in the production of reinforcing mesh, Vulcania Reinforcing has become a leading supplier of customised reinforced mesh products to most industry sectors. Reinforcing mesh has a wide variety of uses, ranging from the ordinary household to heavy industry.

Specialised machinery is used to produce weldmesh with non-standard aperture sizes. The spacing wires in either direction vary between 13mm and 150mm.

Features of Reinforcing Mesh
  • •   The unique deformed wire pattern (curry pattern) offers superior bonding, improved stress distribution and crack-width control.
  • •   Manufactured from hard drawn wire (smooth) and cold rolled wire (deformed).
  • •   All intersections are resistant-welded thereby not reducing the tensile strength of the wires.
  • •   Mesh has an average shear strength equal to 80% of the wire strength.
  • •   The wire used has physical properties which are rigidly controlled to produce mesh with maximum weld strength combined with ductility.
  • •   Specifications allow for cold rolled wire with a minimum ultimate tensile strength of 510Mpa and a high resistance to fatigue.
  • •   Mesh is available in black (pre-galvanised) and galvanised sheets or rolls.
  • •   Consists of parallel longitudinal wires (spaced at a required pitch) with a second series of wires (spaced at a required pitch) so welded to the first      series as to form a rectangle or square mesh. The wires are welded together at their points of intersection by a resistance-welding process. As      shown in picture on left.
  • •   The wire of welded steel fabric shall be hard-drawn steel wire of round cross-section, having a surface that is plain, indented or otherwise      deformed, as required..
  • •   Welded steel fabric is the most commonly used form of prefabricated reinforcement and is particularly suitable for flat slab construction.
