Road Mesh® is engineered from our double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh, with integral transverse reinforcement bars woven into the mesh. Road Mesh® is unrolled into position and secured appropriately before the upper asphalt layers are placed.
Road Mesh® is made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily GalMac® galvanised to provide long term corrosion protection.
Road Mesh® has a three-dimensional structure, enabling the bound layer material to envelope each continuous wire strand, ensuring interlock occurs and therefore optimum and immediate load transfer from the aggregate to the reinforcement.
Whereas MacGrid® AR glass fibre and polyester geogrids inhibit reflective cracking, Road Mesh® additionally structurally reinforces the pavement. As it structurally reinforces pavements, Road Mesh® can also be used in new-build roads, and not just overlays.
