Fletcher Reinforcing supply 100% New Zealand made ductile and hard-drawn reinforcing mesh required for the New Zealand construction and building industry, manufactured in facilities around the country, then distributed through leading building material suppliers or directly through their national branch network, including Ductile Mesh.

Seismic 500E grade of steel reinforcing mesh is designed to withstand the forces of seismic activity and provides stronger steel 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 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. Seismic 500E mesh is available at PlaceMakers and other leading building products retailers nationwide, with a wide range of options to meet your requirements. Sheets are individually tagged and test certificates are available.

Fletcher Reinforcing also supply Hard Drawn (non-ductile) Mesh. Hard drawn mesh is more suitable for non-structural applications, such as driveways and footpaths, and Fletcher Reinforcing offer a range of mesh sheet sizes to meet the needs of typical New Zealand applications. Their range covers the standard sheet sizes.

Regarding the Mesh Smartphone App, they deliver all the technical specifications and information you require while out on site, directly to your smartphone or iPad via their Mesh app. Simply go to the Apple AppStore or Google Play from your device and search for Fletcher Reinforcing – the App is free, and for more information on steel reinforcement please go to http://www.fletcherreinforcing.co.nz .
