Reinforcing mesh is a welded wire fabric, prefabricated steel reinforcement material. It has a rectangular or square grid pattern and is produced in flat sheets. It is used to provide tensile strength and crack control to structural concrete elements.
Trench Mesh is used specifically for residential footing trenches. Made from grade D500L ribbed reinforcing wire, trench mesh is made using a variety of longitudinal wires up to 12mm diameter. Cross wires are at 300mm centres and sheets are made in 6m lengths, with widths varying from depending on the number of longitudinal wires. The longitudinal wires are at 100mm centres.

Square mesh is general purpose mesh for reinforcing flat concrete, used for concrete floor slabs and walls. Mesh is made to order mesh, which can be specified in different sizes to suit your needs. Our general purpose square mesh is manufactured from L grade ribbed wires (D500L) that are welded together with equal spacing in both directions to form square apertures. Used for reinforcing flat concrete elements such as floor slabs and walls, square mesh is available in sheets of two sizes – full size (6mx2.4m) and 4B2 (2mx4m, ideal for smaller jobs such as driveways).
Rectangular Mesh is used when more strength is required in one direction, such as floor slabs and walls. Rectangular mesh is manufactured from L grade ribbed wires (D500L) that are welded together with different spacing in each direction to form rectangular apertures.
