Reinforcing Mesh

We supply 100% New Zealand made ductile and hard-drawn reinforcing mesh required for the New Zealand construction and building industry. Manufactured here in Auckland.

Seismic 500E Grade
Ductile Mesh

Seismic 500E grade of reinforcing mesh designed to withstand the forces of seismic activity provides stronger reinforcement to concrete foundations. It was developed specifically to meet the amended residential building standards requirements that came into effect in February 2012. Development of the product involved an unwavering focus on research, in collaboration with Pacific Steel, as well as independent testing at the Pacific Steel test house.

All concrete floor slabs on ‘good ground’, are required to have reinforcing steel mesh, and all perimeter foundations are required to be tied to the concrete slab with reinforcing steel. The minimum reinforcement requirement as of 1 February 2012 is 2.27kg/m2 of Grade 500E reinforcing mesh fabric.

Hard Drawn (non-ductile) Mesh

Hard drawn mesh is more suitable for non-structural applications, such as driveways and footpaths. We offer a range of mesh sheet sizes to meet the needs of typical New Zealand applications.

Our range covers standard sheet sizes of 4.65m x 1.97m through to our larger economical sheets which are 6.15m x 2.42m. Centres are either 150 x150mm or the ‘step through’ option of 300 x 300mm.
