Did you know that steel mesh fabric and concrete have a similar coefficient of thermal expansion? It means that both materials expand and contract at the same rate, thereby eliminating cracks in extreme weather conditions. It is the reason why industrial contractors prefer reinforcing mesh to other concrete reinforcement options. It is especially the case for construction projects that mainly use concrete slabs. That said, it is crucial to inspect steel mesh fabric before slab-concreting works begin. [Read More]
Do you need to purchase chemical dosing pumps?

Over time, exposure to dust can lead to health issues such as lung problems and silicosis. It also messes up the construction site. It is, therefore, imperative to prevent the hazardous situation by all means. Dust control techniques aim to prevent or reduce the movement of dust particles in the air. [Read More]
