Truss Mesh Structural Panels for Anti Cracking Reinforcement in Masonry Building Construction

Quick View

Truss Wire is a kind of Horizontal Joint Reinforcing Mesh, offering continuous length joint structural reinforcement. Widely used in the masonry wall and bridge construction.

Truss type welded wire / rod reinforcement is a steel wire structural sheet designed to be embedded in the masonry wall. It consists of 2 side-rods welded to a continuous diagonal formed cross-rod forming a truss design with alter nating welds not exceeding 8” (200 mm) O. C. overall. For use in single-wythe walls.

How Truss Mesh Works

Welded Fabrics of galvanized after weld (GAW) processing are popular for Masonry Building Reinforcement. The mesh panel is normally located in the bed joint to strengthen masonry panels without thickening the wall. It has the continuous lengths of joint reinforcement that are embedded into the horizontal mortar joints of masonry walls. Joint reinforcement has long proven to be necessary for superior performance of masonry wall construction.

Block work truss mesh sheet with its unique structure ensures good mortar cover even when lapped or used with wall ties: The longitudinal steel wires are flattened, while cross wires are welded in the same plane as the main wires at 450mm centres.

Choose Galvanized Steel or Stainless Steel Mesh

Masonry wall reinforcing truss mesh can be made from materials of stainless steel or galvanized steel. Stainless steel provides the user with the greatest corrosion resistance and life-cycle costing benefits, and is suitable for use in any application. Galvanised steel mesh is not suitable for use in the external leaf of a cavity wall.

40 cm Spacing Truss Mesh with a width of 10 cm, at 3 meter length
