The product consists of a special expanded metal mesh which is welded in between longitudinal and traverse steel bars. The result is a defection resistant element. Tests carried out by the Technical University of Brunswick (Germany) shows that the resistance of these construction joints to shear forces is identical to that for monolithic concrete. When using Stremaform® for bucket foundations the transferable shear forces are approximately 37% higher than with traditional indented joints.
