Reinforcing Mesh

With many years experience in the production of reinforcing mesh, hongda is a leading supplier of customised reinforcing products to most industry sectors. Reinforcing mesh has a wide variety of uses, ranging from the ordinary household to heavy industry.

In many construction applications such as reinforcing, a welded mesh fabric is preferred to rebar, particularly if Ferro-Fabrik is used. Ferro-Fabrik is a top quality product conforming to SANS 1024/2006. It has greater features and strengths than rebar (minimum 485Mpa) allowing a material saving of 8%, and allows for time saving when fixing on site.

Features of reinforcing mesh

  • The unique deformed wire pattern (curry pattern) offers superior bonding, improved stress distribution and crack-width control
  • Ferro-Fabric is available in a wide range of diameters and apertures. The products can be bent to shape as required
  • 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
  • The steel 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
  • Also available on request: plastic coated and hot dipped (galvanised) mesh
