Supplied exclusively to Maccaferri, Spenax pneumatic and manual tools are used to assemble our double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh products. Adjacent panels of mesh are secured together using Spenax Rings which are closed, using the Spenax tool.
Although not an essential tool for the assembly of our double twist mesh products, these tools accelerate the assembly of gabions by 2-3 times, saving time on the job-site.
The pneumatic tool is connected to a compressor, whereas the manual tool is operated by hand.
As with all hand tools on construction sites, suitable personal protective equipment including eye-protection should always be worn. Always comply with your local health and safety requirements.
Supplied exclusively to Maccaferri, Spenax fixing rings are used to assemble our double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh products. Adjacent panels of mesh are secured together using Spenax Rings which are closed, using the Spenax tool.
Two types of rings are available; GalMac® coated, for use with our galvanised products and Stainless Steel for use with our polymer coated products.
Ties and Spirals
When assembling mesh products, ties and fastenings are also used.
Lacing wire is used to assemble and connect double twist mesh products. Lacing wire is also used to install bracing wire within gabions (both Double Twist and Welded) and Terramesh® units to ensure a good face finish.
Preformed bracing wires, MacTies can also be used to accelerate the installation of bracings within units.
Preformed spirals are also available to assemble the vertical connections of welded gabion units.
