Mesh reinforcement

Where steel reinforcement of a slab is required for structural reasons, the specification will more than likely require high-tensile steel bars as well as fabric mesh, and the design should be undertaken by a qualified engineer. Steel mesh comes in a wide array of profiles with varying mesh sizes and wire sizes as indicated in the table below.

There must always be a minimum of 50mm cover over steel reinforcement, both above, below and around . The fabric is supported from beneath at regular intervals by Hystools, Wire ring spacers, concrete bar spacers, Grade Plate Spacers which are purpose made for use with the sheets of Mesh fabric. . These spacers are placed roughly every 600mm or so, sufficient to carry the fabric without allowing it to sag unacceptably.

mesh fabric

Our range of B reinforcement mesh is primarily used as a fabric for reinforcing concrete slabs, walls and other constructions. B Reinforcement mesh is also called structural mesh , and cosists of 10mm long and 8mm cross bars , manufactured to BS4449 / 2005 standards , they are cares approved products and fully CE certified. B Mesh Data Sheet

REINFORCEMENT STEEL MESH SHEETS

The most commonly specified steel fabrics for paving works are A142 (6mm wires), A193 (7mm wires) and A252 (8mm wires). A142 mesh is often used in 100mm thick light-use slabs such as paths, driveways and garage bases, while A252 is normally associated with heavier-duty 150-200mm thick slabs, with A193 used in either. In light-use applications, a single layer of fabric may be used, but in heavier jobs, two layers are used "top and bottom". A Mesh Data Sheet

Concrete Bar Spacer

Concrete Bar Spacers

SCS heavy-duty concrete square bars are manufactured in 1 metre lengthsa from 20mm up to 100mm. Fixing costs are greatly reduced as the bars can simply be laid on the formwork or ground floor sub-base prior to the loading of the reinforcement cage. Other applications include their use as kickers and formwork spacers. Concrete Spacer Bar Data Sheet

Plastic Tric Trac Spacers

Plastic Tric Trac Spacers

Plastic Line Tric Trac Spacers are supplied in 2000mm lengths and are ideal for supplying bottom reinforcement in suspended slabs . It is also particularly suitable for use on metal decking.

Concrete Double Cover Spacers

Concrete Double Cover Spacers

Flat based , double and triple cover concrete spacers are designed for use on both vertical and horizontal applications. The flat base provides additional support and stability where the weight of reinforcement is high. Concrete Spacer Data Sheet

Plastic Wheel Spacers

Plastic Wheel Spacers

Plastic , clip on wheel spacers provide cover through a full 360 degrees and therefore ideal for columns , walls and beams.

Meshmen

Concrete Meshmen Spacers

Concrete Meshmen/Castles are for use with rebar construction . They are a heavy duty spacer block  that provide a stable and secure platform for rebar to sit on .

Meshmen / Castles can be used for vertical and horizontal support.

Plastic Grade Plate Spacers

Plastic Grade Plate Spacers

Grade Plate spacers are a popular double cover spacer that have been designed for use in groundbeams and slabs. Its large base area prevents puncturing of polythene or groundheave products and provides a stable support for the reinforcing steel. each spacer is capable of holding the steel at two different heights. Grade Plate Spacer Data Sheet

Hychair Spacers

Hychair Wire Spacers

The standard two metre long Continuous Hystools are particularly suitable for ground floor slabs as their unique design eliminates any danger of puncturing damp proof membranes. Hychair Spacer Data Sheet

Rebar Mushroom Safety Caps

Rebar Mushroom Safety Caps

Rebar Safety Caps/ Mushroom Caps  are specifically designed for use in the construction industry and fit over the ends of protruding bars reducing the risk of injury. Rebar  Safety  Caps Data Sheet

Circular Wire Spacers

Circular Wire Spacers

The Circular Wire Spacers provide a quick, easy and economical method of supporting reinforcement in concrete slabs. The spacers are delivered in 3.0 metre long straight lengths, which can be formed into a circle of 1.0 metre diameter. We recommend 4 circular spacers per sheet of mesh.CWS Data Sheet

 

Tying Wire

Tying Wire / Loop Ties

Our rebar tying wire is 17gauge annealed steel wire  , the prefrred choice for steel fixers . Used in construction for fixing reinforcing bars and attaching spacers to mesh reinforcement. Tying Wire Data Sheet

Our double loop ties are used with a tying tool to facilitate quick steel rebar fixing , these come in 150mm & 200mm lengths - packed in 1000s.

Reinforcement Steel - L Bars

CUT & BENT REINFORCEMENT BAR

Our rebar products offer the best steel reinforcement bar none. We can supply a wide variety of rebar solutions, ideal for strengthening the structure and improving the load-bearing capabilities of all foundations and building works.

From the highly cost effective straight length high tensile rebar, used as a tensioning device to hold compression in reinforced concrete, to PVC coated steel gabions, used to prevent erosion and add extra support to retaining walls, each and every one of our rebar products possess unique benefits to enhance the structural soundness of your foundations.

We can even bend and cut the bars to suit your requirements, and we'll bend over backwards to deliver the perfect product at great value for money. On top of this, we have all the accessories you need, from frost blankets which offer durable protection from extreme weather conditions, to couplers for joining and reinforcing steel bars.

High Tensile Reinforcing Bar

HIGH TENSILE REINFORCEMENT BAR

High Tensile Rebar is available from us in a number of standard rebar sizes in straight lengths. What is Rebar? This product is a standard reinforcing steel rod that is used as a tension device in concrete structures to strengthen and hold the concrete together. It is incredibly versatile and very long lasting. By being cast into structures, it effectively counteracts the poor tensile strength of concrete. It is able to be cut to desired size and welded into position. For any further assistance with this product, or any in our range, please speak to a member of our expert team on 01423 331600

COUPLERS

Tapered Thread Standard Couplers

Tapered Threaded Standard Couplers are available from us in different sizes depending on your needs; please see our drop down menu for the full list. Couplers are used in Rebar construction to connect two rebar rods together. This product is specifically designed to seamlessly connect bars of the same diameter while allowing one bar to be rotated. The coupler itself is made up of an internally threaded sleeve tapered towards the middle covered by a metal casing.    

Threaded Standard Couplers Data Sheet

MBT Couplers

MBT Mechanically Bolted Couplers

MBT couplers require neither bar end preparation to form threads nor bar rotation to effect installation. The bars are supported within the coupler by two serrated saddles. As a series of lockshear bolts are tightened to a predetermined torque, they are embedded into the bar. At the same time the saddles bite into both the bar and the shell of the coupler. Installation is complete when the heads of all of the bolts are sheared off. The lockshear bolts on sizes 10mm to 20mm can be tightened using a ratchet wrench.  Terwa Aligator Coupler Data Sheet
