What is Concrete Mesh?

Concrete mesh is often called wire mesh or fiber mesh. While these are two types of concrete mesh, they are quite different. Wire mesh is the more common option to make concrete more durable and it give it the strength it needs.

Fiber mesh is made of glass fibers, steel fibers, synthetic fibers, and natural fibers. It’s often used in driveways, patios, and sidewalks. The main benefit of this type of concrete mesh is the ability to place it in wet cement.

Wire mesh, on the other hand, must be laid down before the concrete is poured. However, it provides a steel reinforcement, which is stronger than fiber mesh and used for many other projects. You will need to lift it up to position it in the middle of the cement before the cement is poured.

Top 3 Benefits of Using Concrete Mesh

It’s always a good idea to reinforce your concrete. Even if you have excellent concrete or you don’t think it’s required for your project, reinforcing concrete with concrete mesh will give you many benefits. Let’s look at three of the top benefits below.

1. Durability

One of the main benefits of concrete mesh is the durability you gain. When you add concrete mesh to reinforce your concrete, you gain more longevity due to more durability.

It can also help to keep your concrete from cracking. Concrete slabs will last longer as an effective foundation when you decide to use concrete mesh.

2. Higher Compressive Strength

Gravel and sand in the concrete give you compressive force. It helps to support more weight and the harder the rock in the concrete, the stronger the compressive strength you get. By adding concrete mesh, you gain even more compressive strength in your concrete.

3. Tensile Strength

When you use concrete reinforcement mesh, you gain more tensile strength. The cement within your concrete mix provides the tensile strength you need. By adding the mesh, you gain even more tensile strength.

It really boils down to gaining more durability and strength when you choose to use concrete mesh. This is a great way to reinforce your concrete and get more life out of it for any type of project.

Concrete Mesh Products We Offer

We offer many great concrete reinforcement products, such as slab bolsters, high chairs, and rebar. However, one of our most popular options is the concrete mesh we offer.

Both our locations in the New York City and Long Island area carry concrete mesh options. We carry the following products in this category:

  • Wire Mesh – The most common type of concrete mesh we carry is our wire mesh. It comes made of steel with 6×6 spacing and wire gauges of 10/10. You can get this concrete mesh in 5-foot by 150-foot rolls.
  • Welded Wire Mats – We also offer welded wire mats with both 6×6 and 4×4 spacing. The 6×6 spacing comes in four different steel and wire gauges, while the 4×4 is offered in two steel and wire gauges. You can get these sheets in five-foot by 10-foot sheets. We also offer epoxy-coated sheets.
  • Wier Lath – If you need the right option for swimming pool construction or another type of concrete reinforcement, our wire lath might be a perfect choice. It comes in two-foot by eight-foot sheets with 1.75″ and 2.5″ galvanized options.

These three products we offer fall under the concrete mesh category. They all have specific uses and might fit perfectly for your concrete project.

Using Concrete Mesh to Control Cracking

One of the main reasons concrete mesh should be used in driveways, walkways, and other concrete projects to control the cracking. When you position the mesh at the top or within the upper portion of the slab, you can help to keep the width of random cracking to a minimum. Cracking often happens with shrinkage, loads are applied, temperatures change, or the settlement of the subbase.

You will likely buy your concrete mesh in sheets or rolls. This means it may be pre-measured, but you will need to cut or trim it to fit your specific needs. Make sure you have the right tools to properly cut the mesh when using it.

Reinforcing Your Concrete with Concrete Mesh

You will need to place the steel mesh in the middle of the concrete. By placing it towards the top or bottom, you may also gain other types of benefits. Either way, it will need to be placed before the concrete is poured.

Often, you will pour half the concrete, lay down the steel mesh, and continue to pour after. However, not all projects are the same. Depending on the project, you may need to suspend the concrete mesh using rebar and wire ties.

There are many reasons you might need concrete mesh for your upcoming project. When you need to complete any type of construction project in the New York City area, we can help. We offer all the right concrete mesh products for your needs.
