Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / types of reinforcements for concrete
French term or phrase: treillis de peau
I'm dubious of how to translate this as it appears in inverted commas in the French - does anyone know the official term (if any) for this or could they describe it me what is it? Presumably it is some kind of wire mesh??

Les "treillis de peau" sont conforme à la norme NF A 35-024 et doivent bénéficier de la certification NF - Armatures pou le béton armé.

WWF crack control reinforcement
Explanation:
WWF = welded wire fabric (= wire mesh)

Crack-control reinforcement
Reinforcement in concrete construction designed to prevent opening of cracks, often effective in limiting them to uniformly distributed
small cracks.

Traditionally crack control reinforcement has been achieved by using steel fabric, which is placed before the concrete/screed is poured. ...

Crack-control reinforcement is placed close to the concrete surface. It does not really play a structural role - unlike the main reinforcing bars - but is primarily intended to have an aesthetic effect by preventing or reducing surface cracking. In a second phase though, it does affect the structure since if it reduces surface cracking, it helps prevent deterioration of the main reinforcement (rust due to water ingress).
