Types and Applications of Steel Mesh

Dec. 04, 2020

Welded Steel Mesh (used in construction) is usually used in the construction of concrete slabs, such as roads, vaults and other curved structures, and as a bonding fabric for gunstone. Compared with traditional lashing steel bars, the cost, time and labor savings of welding wire fabric reinforcement provide an advantage.

Welded steel mesh can be divided into four main types:

1. Rectangular Reinforced Mesh, the metal wires are rectangular cross and supported by longitudinal wires

2. Welded steel wire mesh with square openings, the steel wires are crossed in a square form, and the longitudinal and transverse steel wires are used as supporting wires

3. Welded wire mesh for vertical wall construction

4. Special types.

The above steel mesh can be used for concrete reinforcement. Concrete is one of the most common materials used in commercial buildings. Its properties make concrete an excellent choice for steel structures, cladding systems and floor slabs.

Although concrete is an excellent building material and its compressive strength is extremely high, it has one limitation-concrete's tensile strength is very weak. By combining concrete with materials with strong tensile strength, we can create a composite material that can greatly increase the strength-concrete reinforcement mesh

The Concrete Reinforcement Mesh consists of metal wires or steel bars welded together to form a grid pattern. The size of the grid pattern is usually 4 inches by 4 inches to 8 inches by 8 inches. This type of reinforcement is used to minimize shrinkage cracks on the concrete surface.
