1. Cut one of the longitudinal wires.
2. The length of overlap for masonry reinforcement should be at least 250 mm and the separation between longitudinal wires ≥ 20 mm
In accordance with the specifications of the current standards, a correct overlap between truss type masonry reinforcement should meet the following requirements: Length of overlap: 250 mm (0,6 the distance of the pitch of the cross-wires). Horizontal distance between overlapped wires: 20 mm.
Lateral coating of the wires that have been cut: 30 mm (except stainless steel wires).
The “plug structure” of the geofor® reinforcement ensures all these requirements without any need for manipulation by the operator.
IMPORTANT: At the ends of the reinforcement for structural use it must meet the tree requirements: ADHESION, MORTAR COATING and OVERLAP.
