Yes, steel reinforcement is permitted where it can be embedded in mortar joints, bond beam courses, or grouted into continuous vertical cells. Screen walls are very versatile and is used in both exterior and interior applications. Curtain walls, fences, sun screens and room dividers are few of the numerous applications in which screen walls can be used.
