Benefits of Sm@rtFAB Prefabricated Welded Wire Mesh

  • Precision
  • Less Lapping
  • Minimum Binding
  • Simple Reconciliation
  • Minimises Labor
  • Saves Space
  • Fast and Easy usage
  • Zero waste production 

The cold worked, ribbed, flat welded wire fabric is created using the electric fusion welding technique at the intersections of the main and the cross wires placed at the required spacing intervals. The ribbed wire mesh increases the tensile strength as the ribbing guarantees a perfect bond with concrete. 


Standard Welded Wire Fabric Sheet Sizes

Type A Square Fabric 200mm main wire spacing / 200mm cross wire spacing
Type B Rectangular Fabric 100mm main wire spacing / 200mm cross wire spacing
Type D Small Square Fabric 100mm main wire spacing / 100mm cross wire spacing
Type E Square Fabric 150mm main wire spacing / 150mm cross wire spacing

Our Welded Wire Mesh is available in following sizes:

  • Wire Diameter*:
    • Available in 2mm to 4.9mm in plane roll form (Commonly available sections are 2.3mm, 3.2mm, 4mm)
    • From 5mm to 12mm at an interval of 1mm as ribbed flat customised sheet
  • Spacing interval: In rectangular grids from 75mm to 300mm at an interval of 5mm
  • Fabric Size: 2.4 meter (width) x 6 meter (length)


  • Features of Sm@rtFAB

    • Electrical Fusion Welding

    Changes the state of the joints from solid to liquid, then solidifies them together without affecting the chemistry of the rods

    • Guaranteed spacing accuracy

    Matches the exact cross-sectional steel area which allows customization while proving accuracy due to a flexible manufacturing system

    • Produced as per IS 1566 with steel complying with IS 432-2

    Manufactured with hard drawn steel wire fabric for concrete reinforcement
