how do i work out how much mesh I need?

Here is a simple way to work out how many sheets of mesh you require for your slab. Simply calculate the total slab area and divide that total by 12.2.

 

For example: Your slab is 10m long x 8m wide = 80m2. Divide slab area 80m2 / 12.2 = 5.56 sheets, round up to 6 sheets of Mesh. This formula also allows for lapping as per industry standard.

 

how do i work out how many bar chairs I need?

Bar Chairs are generally calculated at 22 chairs per sheet of mesh. Bar Chairs are available in pack sizes of 100 for the smaller chairs and 50 for the larger chairs.
