BUILDING ACCESSORIES

Description
MR2 type is a prefabricated reiforcement especiallj'designed for embedment in the horizontal mortar joints of masonry. . It ismanufactured in 10 ft. length. Ladder type consists of two or more parallel, longtidunal rods weld connected to perpendicular cross rods normally spaced 15" O.C. to form a ladder design. For reinforced amsonry applications, 16" spacing is available on request. The cross rods are electricaly butt welded side rods in a single plane. Out to out sapcing of side is approximately two inches less than the nominal thickness of the wall or wythe in wich the reinforcement is placed.

Basic Uses
Ladder type reinforcement can be used in
masonry walls Some are:
. To control shrinkage cracking.
. To provide principal horizontal reinforcement in
engineered masonrj' walls.
. To bond masonry wythes together in composite
and cavity walls.
. To reinforced stack bond masonry.
. To bond intersecting walls.

Advantages
Greater elasticity . Higher ductility . Better resistance to rainpenetration . More economy . Crack control . High bond with side wires.
Prefabricated Corners and Tees
A complete line of prefabricated corner and tee sections are available in all design types and finishes. It is necessary to designate corners as inside or outside when usingtrirod or double design types.
