What Is Welded Wire Fabric?
Welded wire fabric is a heavy-duty welded wire mesh product. It is widely used in concrete and buildings. At Wanzhi Steel, the welding of welded wire fabric is done by machines. This ensures accurate dimensions for the period. The commonly used shapes of welded wire fabric are rectangular and square. You can customize the size you want according to your actual needs. Here is more information about welded wire fabric for your reference.
Advantages of Welded Wire Fabric in Concrete
1. Good Anti-cracking Performance
Using welded wire fabric in concrete can prevent cracks in wall and floor slabs. This is because when a wall or floor slab shrinks or is pulled, the steel resists these tensile stresses. Welded wire fabric distributes them evenly over a large area, helping them to hold tightly together and thus minimize cracks.
2. Higher Strength
Compared to manually assembled rebar, this welded wire mesh made of high-quality low-carbon iron wire welded by the machine is much stronger. The mesh stays where you place it and adheres well to the concrete.
3. Economical and Practical
The economy is a very important advantage of welded wire fabric. This is because there is no need to cut rebar, mark, and space it when using welded wire fabric. In addition, you do not need to laboriously tie the ties. This means less reliance on on-site manpower, which saves a lot of labor and time.
4. No Need for Frequent Maintenance
Using a welding wire fabric can in a sense eliminate some of the maintenance work and inspections you have to perform. This is because it always stays in good condition. Besides, it minimizes cracks, making it a good choice for concrete reinforcement.
5. Easy Handling and Placement
Welded wire fabric can be supplied not only in sheet form. In the case of welding wire cloth made from finer wire, it can be supplied in long rolls. This makes it easier to transport and handle. In addition, it will be more space-saving when stored.
6. Avoiding Steel Waste
Welded wire mesh fabric is quick and easy to lay. When using it, you can change the rebar size and spacing. You can reduce steel waste by providing the exact rebar size where it is needed.
Applications of Welded Wire Fabric
Welded wire mesh fabric is widely used for the reinforcement of concrete structures. Besides, it has other uses, for example：
1. Fabrication of frames;
2. Reinforcement of road surfaces or parking lots;
3. Manufacture of various fences;
4. Used as masonry mesh;
5. Used as coal mine roadway support netting.
