Products

Welded Mesh

Codimetal Industries S.A is equipped with cutting-edge technology and qualified human resources allowing high production flexibility in order to expand the production of welded meshes according to customers’ needs.

Applications:

  • Slabs
  • Pavements
  • Retaining walls
  • Walls
  • Pipe galleries
  • Foundations
  • Tunnels
  • Reinforced concrete pipes
  • Slopes consolidation
  • Precast concrete elements

Advantages:

  • Time of application (high efficiency)
  • Reinforcement rationalization
  • Waste Reduction
  • Quality guarantee in factory
  • Not specialized workforce in the application (easy application)

Welded meshes are made of steel bars set in parallel in two orthogonal directions and the points of contact between welded bars are welded by an electrical resistence welding process of points. By having the flexibility in producing welded meshes, Codimetal Industries SA produces special products whether in reference to size, type or quality grade of the steel as well as regarding the mesh geometry.

Technical Support

The steel bars that constitute the welded mesh are previously approved. After the welding process tests are again carried out in order to determine mesh mechanical characteristics. quality control measures all the dimensions in the sheet or roll of the welded mesh such as length, width, pitch miter and diameters involved. The sampling procedure covers the requirements of all European standards.

Special Welded Mesh

The production flexibility enables the fabrication of meshes with different characteristics in order to adapt the reinforcement to the design feautures. May be considered meshes with different characteristics, both in size and spacing of the meshes, rolls and panels, as well as the diameters of the steel bars to fit the project. For specific applications we have calendering and folding bending equipment fitting the armor to the shape of the structural element.

Welded Mesh - Fences

Welded meshes produced with a diameter 6 and 8 mm allow the execution of fences with high strength and durability.

Galvanized Welded Mesh

The galvanized welded mesh is produced with pre-galvanized coated wire.

The main applications of these meshes are:

  • Locksmith works
  • Fences
  • Bricolage works
  • Meshes for protection
  • Construction
  • Agriculture
  • Industry

Lattice Girders

Codimetal Industries SA lattice girders are resistant elements made of steel wires welded by an electrical resistance welding process.

Each lattice girder consists of three or four longitudinal wires placed at the vertices of a triangle, these being joined by two other wires with a triangular waveform. The upper chord reinforcement may consist of two wires together, thus reinforcing the steel section to a maximum of ø16+ø12.

Applications:

  • Precast concrete reinforced
  • Solid slabs
  • Precast concrete reinforced beams
  • Double walls
  • Suspended ceilings
  • Spacers
  • Precast panels

Note About Quality

The steel wires that constitute the welded lattice girder are previously approved. After the welding process tests are again carried out to determine the mechanical characteristics of the welded lattice girder. The quality control measures all the existing dimensions in the welded lattice girder such as length, base width, height and pitch, curvature, deflection and diameters involved. The sampling procedure covers the requirements of European Standards.

Steel Bar

The calibrated wire, grade A500ER ribbed surface and grade A500EL smooth surface are produced through a wire drawing process or by a cold rolling process and commercialized as coil or bar. It has very good weldability and good adherence to concrete in the case of the ribbed surface.

The steel bar, besides being an intermediate for other products in Codimetal Industries SA such as welded mesh, stirrups, straps
and lattice girders have numerous applications in other prefabricated structures such as:
  

  • Precast concrete reinforced pipes
  • Beams
  • Cross Beam 

Stirrups

The steel bar may be cut and shaped according to customer specifications and it can be made in any kind of geometry and dimension.

Structures in General:

  • Beams
  • Columns
  • Lintels

Precast Concrete:

  • Spacers
  • Agriculture
  • Tubes

Note About Quality

The steel wires used for the production of stirrups are previously approved. After the production process are measured and verified of all dimensions (sides and angles) existent in the stirrups. The sampling procedure covers the requirements of European standards.

Spacers Strips

This product is used in the separation of upper and lower reinforcement of slabs at a given height. The spacers are produced in two-dimensional lattice girder and composed of two longitudinal wires welded separated from each other by a zigzag wire. The zigzag pitch is constant of 150 mm and the height varies between 70 and 200 mm at intervals of 10 mm. The standard length is 2.00 m for all kinds.

Applications:

  • Concrete slabs in general
  • Reinforced concrete walls
  • Motorway in concrete
