Steel reinforcing materials
The welded fabrics offered in this publication are manufactured to comply with the requirements of this joint Standard.
Seismic Construction Meshes are fabricated from 500E grade steel to specifications listed in the structural section, Table 6B of the Standard.
Hard Drawn Wire Meshes are fabricated from 500L grade steel to specifications listed in the non-structural section, Table 6B of the Standard.
Code of Practice for the Design of Concrete Structures
This Standard lays out the development length and lap-splice requirements for plain wire fabric and deformed wire fabric and is the basis of any pertinent calculations or recommendations given in this publication.
