Because of the simple installation and regular manufactured grid design, wire mesh is also a reinforcing material like rebar known as reinforcing mesh grid and used popularly.Fiberglass reinforced polymer bar ( GFRP rebar) is used widely for efficient construction right now, because it is lighter, cheaper and stronger than steel. It is not susceptible to corrosion also, and lasts much longer. Comparing with steel wire mesh, Pulwell’s fiberglass (GFRP) rebar mesh is stronger, lighter, and rust free, which means can significantly save costs in installation as well as in handling, and also make the constructions more durable
Benefits of Pulwell fiberglass rebar mesh/GFRP rebar mesh vs steel rebar mesh
◎75% lighter than steel--ease of handling, labor and freight savings
◎Stronger than steel-- 2X tensile strength of steel rebar
◎More durable-- impervious to corrosion, longer service life,no more corrosion cracks
◎Non conductive-- electrical and thermal insulator
◎Cost competitive-- consistent pricing and cheaper than steel
◎Faster to install-- light weight and easily cutting for 50% labor savings
◎Lower tensile modulus-- springs back and stays centered when stepped on or driven on, less cracks

Concrete Reinforcing fiberglass rebar ( GFRP rebar) mesh
It can be used for reinforcing concrete flatwork such as parking lots, floors, concrete pads, roads, driveways, walkways, sewage treatment plants, sidewalks, agricultural slabs,shed pad, steps, ramps, curved pathway, patios, lightweight paving, floors in livestock farms,precast,chemical waste storage facilities, pedestrian paths, construction of coastal and hydraulic structures,as well as swimming pool deck and surround.
Masonry wall reinforcement mesh for bricks or concrete blocks
The fiberglass masonry mesh is used to reinforce masonry in the construction of houses with concrete, expanded clay blocks and bricks. The advantages of a fiberglass masonry mesh are light weight to reduce load on the foundation and low thermal conductivity , which does not create cold bridges unlike a steel mesh.We sell a mesh with width 20, 25, 33 and 50 cm. Choose the appropriate size, depending on the thickness of your wall.
