The Bar reinforcement mesh in composite slabs usually takes the form of a relatively light welded fabric A142 Reinforcement mesh, commonly supplemented by some bar reinforcement. The fabric reinforcement is required to perform a number of functions: -

  • Provide bending resistance at the supports of the slab in the fire condition.
  • Reduce and control cracking at the supports, which occurs because of flexural tension and differential shrinkage effects.
  • Distribute the effects of localised point loads and line loads.
  • Strengthen the edge of openings.
  • Act as transverse reinforcement for the composite beams.

Our high quality A142 reinforcement mesh is 100% UK sourced and manufactured to BS4483/2005 with CARES approval. The A142 mesh is lightest mesh we offer from stock, with 6mm cross wires.
