Hexagonal woven mesh is the perfect product for rockfall mesh netting and to cover large areas of river mattresses quickly. The mesh is of high strength and made of durable flexible material. Two mesh type options are available, either Class A Galvanised or together with a PVC extruded wire coating. The mesh aperture size is either 60×80 or 80x100mm hexagonal mesh type with either 2.20 or 2.70mm mesh wire and 3.4mm diameter salvage wire along the mesh roll edging. We normally also provide the 2.2mm binding wire for lacing rolls together along the common edge. These mesh rolls have a high tensile strength and can also be provided with steel dowels as required for anchorage into slopes.
Mesh rolls can be effectively used to prevent rockfalls on steep rock slopes, with mesh attached securely to the rock face, you can also use mesh rolls to cover large areas of mattresses. Often mattress lids get in the way during installations, we recommend leaving them out of the way, covering them when the infill and packing is complete.
Roll sizes available – 2metres wide x 50m long (100m2) or 2 x 100
The Class A Galvanised hexagonal woven mesh shown was supplied to a contractor in Durban called Gralio construction and use by the civil engineering consultant Moore Spence Jones to improve the bearing pressure of the imported layerworks below the new distribution centre for Checkers in Verulam. The quality of the imported soils from a nearby borrow pit did not meet the required layerwork specification entirely and so it was decided to improve the layerworks horizontal shear resistance by adding two layers of mesh. Our prices were attractive and so we supplied 200rolls of 50x2m mesh for this purpose, which were layer on top of a roadmesh, supplied by others (hexagonal mesh with transverse wire rods at alternative mesh apertures, to improve the strength in both directions uniformly.)
