  • Typical application:

    during construction (in new construction) of as well as during repair, reinforcement or renovation of residential and municipal buildings which consist of various wall materials (calcium-silicate or ceramic bricks, foam concrete blocks, breeze blocks):

    • for reinforcement of horizontal brickwork joints in order to increase load-bearing capacity and integrity thereof
    • for reinforcement of clay block walling systems with a hollowness exceeding 30% in order to save grout in mortar joints and ensure regulatory level of thermal conductivity of masonry walls
    • as binding elements in multilayer brickworks while binding a layer of brick veneer with a main inner wall of various wall materials
    • for reinforcement of foundations and floor cement screeds
    • as reinforcement of waterproof finish in accommodation buildings (underground floors, swimming pools)
  • Cheaper than metal mesh at equal tensile propertiesCheaper than metal mesh at equal tensile properties
    Basalt meshes are easy to handle: the meshes are lighter, space-saving, cause no injuries to hands, subject to high-level adherence to walls, cuttable to rolls of required width, effortlessly cuttable to required dimensionsBasalt meshes are easy to handle: the meshes are lighter, space-saving, cause no injuries to hands, subject to high-level adherence to walls, cuttable to rolls of required width, effortlessly cuttable to required dimensions
