240 Ladder-Twin-Mesh

pdf

The 240 Ladder-Twin-Mesh has 4 Longitudinal (Side) Rods to reinforce block-and-brick or block-and-block composite walls

  • Hohmann & Barnard's Lox All® Truss-Mesh and Lox All® Ladder-Mesh are continuous lengths of joint reinforcement that are embedded into the horizontal mortar joints of masonry walls
  • Joint reinforcement has long proven to be necessary for superior performance of masonry wall construction
  • Benefits:
    • Greatly reduces cracking that can arise from thermal stresses. This enhances resistance to water penetration, as cracks are controlled
    • Increases lateral flexural strength
    • Bonds exterior and interior masonry wythes together in composite or cavity walls. Also bonds masonry at intersecting walls and corners
    • Increases elasticity and performance of masonry walls under various stresses
  • Features:
    • Butt-welding of cross rods to longitudinal rods (not more than 16”o.c.). This construction enhances bonding capabilities, eliminates projection of cross rods beyond the specified width of reinforcement, and prevents excessive build up of wire in limited mortar joints
    • Continuous deformation along each longitudinal rod for superior bonding performance
  • Fabricated in conformance with ASCE/ACI 530 building code requirements for masonry structures and ASTM A 951
