INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the United Steel handbook. This has been written to


provide a helpful guide to our products, their specifications and
their correct usage. This guide has been developed for:

Construction Companies
Building Contractors
The following pages contain helpful information on the nature
of steel and wire, welding and joining processes, on lapping
and on other important design criteria. This will be useful when
assessing and specifying reinforcing mesh options for particular
purposes in construction.
Data sheets follow also for each United Steel product, listing
full technical specifications and suitable applications. Related
services are also available. Please telephone or email us with
any further enquiries.

Before 2012, United Steel operated as the sister companies


Wireplus and Steelplus, earning the respect and trust of the
New Zealand building, engineering and construction industries
for our innovation, quality and service.

THE COMPANY

United Steel is a leading New Zealand manufacturer of reinforcing


mesh and nails, as well as a supplier of structural steel, reinforcing
rod, steel plates and allied products.

Bringing Steelplus and Wireplus together under one banner creates


synergies that improve service and cost efficiency. For customers,
the merger into United Steel offers access to a wider range of
quality steel building products under one roof than ever before.
United Steel has manufacturing plants in Auckland and
Christchurch, and additional distribution branches in Wellington,
Hastings and New Plymouth.
United Steel is a member of the United Industries group of
companies that has served New Zealand well for over 20 years.
The privately owned group also serves the Pacific region.
If you wish to find out more about our product range and how it
can suit your project, please contact your local United Steel branch.

Standard Specifications and Codes of Practice in New Zealand are


controlled, managed and published by The Standards Association
of New Zealand.
The New Zealand Standards determine the characteristics of the
steel used for concrete reinforcement, the manufacturing of welded
mesh, and the process of applying the mesh to the concrete.
NZS4761:2001 STEEL REINFORCING MATERIALS

This standard provides the specifications of the material


requirements for steel bars, wire and mesh intended for use in the
reinforced concrete structures which have been designed in
accordance with NZS3101

NEW ZEALAND STANDARDS

New Zealand Standards

NZS3101:2006 CODE OF PRACTICE FOR THE DESIGN


OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES

This Standard lays out the development length and lap-splice


requirements for plain wire mesh and deformed wire mesh, and
is the basis of any pertinent calculations or recommendations
given in this United Steel guideline.
Further information is available from:

Standards Association of New Zealand, Private Bag, Wellington

For more information, contact us on


0800 800 649 or visit www.unitedsteel.co.nz

The New Zealand Standard 4671:2001 requires testing of every


batch of the seismic reinforcing mesh to ensure the mechanical
properties comply. Testing of the following properties are included:
Weld shear tests
Tensile yield strength tests
Uniform elongation test
United Steel uses both its own modern in-house testing laboratory
as well as external testing laboratories to ensure properties comply
with the standard.

Sheet Sizes of our reinforcing mesh products are designed to


offer our customers ease of use and handling as well as meeting
NZ Standards requirements. All dimensions are specified in the
following product data sheets, and include the end and side
overhang lengths.
With our state-of-the-art Jger & Schlatter Mesh Welding
machine, United Steel is able to customise sheet sizes and lapping
requirements according to particular client specifications. Custom
orders can generally be turned around in two weeks including
delivery - this will depend on raw material availability and volume.

HARD DRAWN MESH


Hard drawn wire meshes are the traditional New Zealand meshes.
In residential dwelling practice it has largely been replaced by the
Ductile Plus 500E seismic mesh, but can in certain applications
still be an alternative option. It is also still used in a wide range of
other applications (listed below).
The range includes 668 to 661 meshes (standard and large sheets)
as well as equivalent Rib meshes 147 to 212 (also known as step
through meshes).
Hard drawn wire mesh will typically provide a lower cost
equivalent to the Ductile Plus mesh where it complies with the
specific application.

COMMON APPLICATIONS
Engineering
Driveways
Non Residential structures
Heavy Construction
Agriculture.
Security screens
Fencing

MESH PROPERTIES
Min MPA 485
Wire sizes from 4 to 9mm
Deformed and Plain wires available in some styles.
Spacings from 50 to 300mm
NOTE:
As of February 2012 DBH mandated that all Dwellings are required to have 500E meshs in
foundations for Building being consented under NZS3604:2011. To ensure compliance in these
structures use any of the meshs from Untied Steel Ductile Plus 500E range.

Lap-splice requirements are set and controlled by the NZ


Standards Association in NZS3101:2006. There are a number
of variables and conditions associated with these.

LAPPAGES

Lappages

United Steel offer the following charts and diagrams to guide


calculations and design specifications. Please refer back to
NZS3101:2006 for substantiation in specific cases.
Please also be aware of the NZ Standards Associations
differential of requirements for plain wire mesh and deformed wire
mesh. Lap-splice requirements are different for plain v deformed,
and presented sheet designs are produced according to NZ
Standards guidelines. For this reason calculations for deformed
wire mesh and deformed bar lappages are the same.
References are as laid out in NZS3101

Ductile 430 mesh is used by the construction industry as a


reinforcing mesh for structural concrete. The mesh is available
in various configurations and is designed to conform to NZS3101
for primary reinforcement in structural concrete elements and
also for topping slabs on proprietary flooring systems for
multi-story construction.
A range of 430 meshes are available all utilising the lapping
advantages available by having wires at 100mm pitch at the
exterior both longitudinally and latitudinally. Sheet sizes are configured to give consideration to lapping efficiency, but considering
handling constraints due to transport and on-site limitations.

NOTES: 1. This list is provided as a guideline only and correct substitution and design should

always be c
hecked with building designer or engineer. 2. Where large ares are involved, efficiencies
may be able to be gained by using custom designed mesh. Consult United Steel for further
information. 3. Mesh other than Ductile 500E can be used in some cases. For details, consult
your local branch or refer to our Conversion Chart for Meshes (available on our website).
4. All above calculations are based on AS/NZS 4671:2001 specifications for 500E Ductile mesh.
