The Wire Girder – Double has been designed to quickly and accurately position wire mesh in large slab-on-grade applications. The girder is available in heights from 3″ to 9″ in 1″ increments and in any length up to 40′. Optional snap-on sand plates are available for use on soft, sandy soils and to prevent the girder from turning during concrete placement. When using the girder on a firm casting bed, the snap-on plates are not a necessity but will give better support on slabs exceeding 6″ in thickness.
The optional snap-on plates are field installed by simply squeezing the bottom runners of the girder inward until they slip inside the plate tabs. Release of the runners will let them slide under the tabs and be held firmly in place by the tabs.
