> Builder benefits 

  • Fast and simple installation
    Murfor® Compact can be easily rolled out onto blocks or bricks and be cut to size; no overlaps are required and less material is lost. One roll of Murfor® Compact has 30 m of reinforcement, and only weights about 3 kg, about 10 times less than regular masonry reinforcement of the same length. The lightweight rolls are much safer to lift, carry and use. 
  • Easy to stack and transport
    Murfor® Compact rolls have a low volume, which has several economic and logistical advantages. You can easily stack the rolls so that they take up less space in storage and transport.
  • Accommodates any wall width
    Murfor® Compact is suitable for any wall width. The reinforcement is available in two convenient width options that can be easily combined to reinforce any wall width.
