Mesh & reinforcement
Almost every concrete pour requires a reinforced mesh or re-bar

Concrete is the only viable solution for supporting buildings and incredible levels of force. It’s properties mean that it won’t buckle under the immense pressure it typically needs to endure.

However, across almost every pour you’ll find that there is a requirement to reinforce the concrete with a mesh grid and steel reinforcement bars. Concrete is poured over the mesh which cures around the steel. This significantly increased strength and durability of the final product and prevents cracking.

Mesh & reinforcement Applications
You'll need reinforcement on almost every industrial concrete pour

You’ll need some steel reinforcement on every industrial concrete pour. Reinforcement increases the strength of a floor enormously and reduces cracking. Steel will run through all industrial floors and extra reinforcement will be found at details and corners. Joint details at regular intervals allow floors to dry without unsightly cracking.

our process
The installation process is fairly standard

We carefully study design drawings and involve our purchasing dept to make sure the correct materials are present. The designs are forwarded to our installation teams where competent steel fixers follow the drawings to the letter. Spacers are installed and the reinforcements are tied together in line with BS EN 1992. All details are signed off by an engineer before pouring.

Recommended Preparation

Shuttering

The frame around the pour area to keep the concrete in place whilst it dries.

Types of lay

Laser Screed

The quickest method for laser level accuracy (up to FM1) for large scale concrete pours.

More Info

Screed Rail

A screed rail system allows the manual levelling of a pour when you can’t use a laser screed.

More Info

Hand Lay

Skilled specialists use a metal tamp to spread the concrete evenly across a surface.
