Using Murfor® Compact is very simple. The reinforcement is available in lengths of 30 m, which can be easily rolled out and cut to length with a cutter; no overlaps, no heavy lifting, no material loss. Moreover, Murfor® Compact is very light. One roll of the reinforcement is weighs up to 10 times lighter (only 3 kg) than regular reinforcements of the same length. The light-weight rolls are safer to lift, carry and use.

Suitable for any wall width

Murfor® Compact is available in two different widths. If required, reinforcement of two different widths can be put next to each other onto the stones to match the width of the wall.
