Multi-purpose lightweight wire frame
Trimesh® is made from high-tensile steel wire with the option of a lightweight polymer core. It can be used in curtain or partition walls and as a core in precast elements. Trimesh® Plus is a stronger panel and can be used for the construction of load-bearing elements of construction. Spraying Trimesh® or Trimesh® Plus with LAF fireproofing or soundproofing products gives outstanding fire resistance and/or sound reduction.
The Trimesh® structure is a composite panel that combines the strength of steel, the energy saving properties of a thermally efficient core (when included) and the fire endurance capabilities of our monolithic spray applied mortars. The panel is basically conceived to be used as a total construction system, but it also can be included in other construction systems such as curtain walls, partition walls or as a core in precast elements.
Compliant with most building regulation provisions, Trimesh® saves both time and costs. Trimesh® panels are erected onsite and can be easily transported and re-dimensioned. A standard Trimesh® panel consists of two layers of mesh wire of a nominal 2mm in diameter; with a square pattern of approximately 5cm. Trimesh® can be supplied as a plain wire-frame panel, with a polymer core of the desired thickness, or with aluminium foil for thermal insulation and a vapour barrier.
Health and Safety
Trimesh® can be spray coated with any of the LAF Group range of materials which, as blends of either gypsum and vermiculite or cement and vermiculite, contain no asbestos and present no known health hazard before, during or after application.
Trimesh® has no long-term environmental effects on air, water or land, and being made of steel, it can be recycled.
