Welded wire reinforcement (construction mesh) is an efficient and economical replacement for rebar as reinforcement in concrete construction. The use of welded wire reinforcement saves time and installation costs compared to standard rebar concrete reinforcement. Wires are welded into a sheet eliminating the time needed for tying rebar, and ensuring that the wires will not move when concrete is placed.
All Tree Island Steel’s welded wire reinforcement is manufactured to strict industry standards and complies with ASTM A1064 / A1064M. Galvanized coating options meet ASTM A641 / A641M standards.

Rust is OK! Studies by the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) have found that a moderate amount of rust does not affect the properties of the metal. In fact, tightly adhered rust on the reinforcing steel is not detrimental to bond, but rather can be beneficial. To learn more about the rust myth, click below.
