SIDEFIT Special Reinforcing Mesh is designed to meet all reinforcing needs that exist in construction works. It is applied mainly to form a reinforcing grid for surface structures (slabs, walls, etc). Moreover, it covers all special needs of transverse reinforcement (stirrups) for longitudinal members (columns, beams etc), which are not covered by the standard range of SD column mesh reinforcements.
SIDEFIT reinforcement modernizes existing reinforcing practice, combining guaranteed industrial quality and significant time and cost savings.
Depending on the arrangement of the main reinforcement, in one or two directions, SIDEFIT reinforcement consists of two main categories: In SIDEFIT 1D mesh the main reinforcement is arranged in one direction whereas in the other direction small-diameter (Ø6) bars of SAE 1010 wire rod are welded. They hold the reinforcement at the desired spacing.The number of these bars (Ø6) is the minimum required to ensure the cohesion of the mesh and their position may vary depending on the type of application (e.g. bending points, flying ends, “guides” for the forming of the mesh, etc). Their material enables easy cutting when required.SIDEFIT 1D Special Reinforcing Mesh can be manufactured with the use of mesh-welding machines, for the lapping and the creation of cages of various shapes (e.g. complex columns) or hooks. SIDEFIT 1D can be used in all cases of transverse reinforcement for longitudinal members (all kinds of beams, columns, walls, etc.), and moreover for the creation of a reinforcing grid for surface structures (slabs, walls, etc).
