MacArmour is a 2-in-1 product that combines a homogeneous structure of steel wire rope with double twist wire mesh.
The result is a unique product that has an excellent out-of-plane stiffness (punch resistance) and an outstanding tensile strength in the longitudinal and transversal direction.
Maccaferri DT Mesh is a core component of our MacRO rockfall mitigation and natural hazard protection application area. It is one of a range of mesh systems that are selected according to our analysis of the project site conditions and client requirements.
Used for over 50 years, our DT Mesh is engineered from our double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire and is used as a drapery system to prevent rocks and debris from falling onto roads and railways.
Due to the characteristics of the double twist, the steel wire mesh can withstand the punching force of falling rocks and without unraveling in the event of wire breakage.
DT Mesh is made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanised to provide long term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for meshes that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
Maccaferri new PA6 polymer coating has been added to our range of protective coatings to offer a solution to those projects that require improved environmental and technical performance to the existing PVC and HDPE coated mesh products on the market.
Our DT mesh is manufactured in our factories around the world. In selected factories, the mesh is produced in compliance with CPR – Construction Product Regulation 305/2011. The management and production system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (related to the environmental management system).
