WMC manufactures ESM with sizes ranging D4 up to D31 with variable and fixed spacing available. Sheet sizes available up from 12’ - 0” wide to 48’ - 0” long. We have a team of design engineers that can assist and produce CAD drawings and WSM placement drawings. WMC can also provide rebar to ESM conversions and splice calculations.
All ESM produced by WMC conforms to current ASTM A1064 (replaces ASTM A185 for smooth wire and ASTM A497 for deformed wire). WMC is NTPEP approved at some of our locations along with being DOT approved in many States (contact us for list). WMC can provide ESM with yield strengths from 65,000 psi to 80,000 psi. We also offer bent ESM in addition to custom cutting and coatings, such as Epoxy Coated and Hot Dipped Galvanized. Stainless Steel is also available by special order.
• Reduced labor: In many cases ESM can be placed
50% faster than conventional rebar and can be placed
using less labor and replacing conventional rebar.
• Accurate spacing: Because ESM is mechanically welded, the spacing is accurate and requires less field inspection than rebar, thus saving additional time and money.
• Custom lap splice sheets: Saves steel and makes placing ESM accurate in the lap zone.
• High yield strength: Allows engineers to reduce the steel area from grade 60 of conventional rebar. This can reduce up to 25% of the weight, thus saving overall tonnage on projects.
