Lap your Ductile Plus Mesh with certainty. United Steel introduces QR codes

United Steel is always looking to ensure its customers have access to relevant product information. The introduction of QR codes on labels for the “ductile plus” mesh range allows the placer to see clearly how to lap the mesh he or she is actually laying.

“We want our mesh to be laid with the minimum lapping configuration so the customer maximises m2 coverage” says Ryk Kleynhans the Auckland United Steel manager.

United Steel offers a ductile mesh range to the market that few competitors can match. The many size options ensures the most cost effective coverage can be achieved for any job.
