Applications of steel reinforcement products
Steel reinforcement is widely used in the following applications:
- Concrete slabs and precast structures: Steel is cast inside concrete slabs and precast structures for use on the construction of buildings, roads, bridges and more. Steel is ideal for reinforcement in concrete, as it bods well with the concrete mixture, and can be manipulated (cut and bend) to fit any concrete shape. Steel adds a tensile strength to the concrete structure, so that the structure isn’t as affected by tensile stresses.
- Infrastructure: Steel reinforcement is widely used in infrastructure including roads, pavement, bridges and more. Welded mesh can be manufactured in large sheets, making it ideal for larger applications such as infrastructure.
- Fencing: Welded wire mesh is widely used as fencing products. Its versatility and ability to be cut, bent and manipulated makes it ideal for a number of fencing applications and needs.
- Agriculture: The agricultural industry relies on welded wire mesh for a number of different applications including crop protection, chicken coops, vertical gardens, green houses, pest control, fencing for livestock and many more. If you are in need of welded mesh for your agricultural needs, contact IPM Steel today for assistance.
- Airports: Airports often make use of wire mesh for fencing and other purposes, offering a versatile, cost-effective and durable fencing solution for larger needs.
