Firstly, what is D49 Construction Mesh and how is it made? Produced by us it is manufactured from 2.5mm copper washed drawn mild steel wire and conforms to BS 1052:1980. Our D49 construction mesh is manufactured to the latest standards, suitable for construction reinforcement and is resistance welded at every intersection.
Screed reinforcement is a common practice adopted to improve the strength of screed constructions, curb shrinkage and cracking and impart better impact resistance to screeds. Reinforcement of the screeds using D49 wire mesh can prevent this to a great extent as it acts as a physical obstruction, deflecting the stress developed by micro cracks and preventing the formation of larger cracks on the screed.
D49 Mesh has a variety of uses, one being to protect pipes by laying a 30cm width over the piping which as stated above, helps enormously to obviate cracks. When it comes to under floor heating, the manner in which shrinking of the screed occurs raises problems which can be dealt with effectively by laying D49 mesh over the pipes and its efficacy cannot be understated.
The constantly changing temperature causes expansion and contraction which can result in potential cracks and curling; stabilising the screed with D49 mesh deals with this problem. D49 mesh is great for increasing reinforcement for the bending moment.
