Steel Wire Mesh

Steel wire mesh, or wire cloth or netting, is a versatile and widely used material made from interlaced steel wires. It is formed by weaving or welding the wires to create a mesh-like pattern with evenly spaced openings. Steel wire mesh has various configurations, including wire diameters, mesh sizes, and weaving patterns, to suit specific applications.

Here are some key features and common uses of steel wire mesh:

  • Strength and Durability: Steel wire mesh is known for its high tensile strength and durability. It can withstand heavy loads, impact, and harsh environmental conditions, making it suitable for demanding applications.
  • Filtration and Separation: Wire mesh with finer mesh sizes is commonly used for filtration and separation. It can effectively filter and separate solids, liquids, and gases based on their particle size, allowing for the control of fluid flow, sieving, and particle retention.
  • Protection and Safety: Steel wire mesh is frequently used as protective barriers or enclosures. It can create fencing, partitions, and cages for securing perimeters, controlling access, or preventing contact with hazardous equipment or areas.
  • Animal and Pest Control: Steel wire mesh finds use in agricultural settings, gardens, and construction sites to keep animals, birds, and pests away from crops, plants, and sensitive areas. It can be used as animal enclosures, bird netting, or as a barrier to prevent digging or entry.
  • Reinforcement and Support: In construction and concrete applications, steel wire mesh is often embedded within concrete slabs or structures to provide reinforcement and increase structural strength. It helps to control cracking and improve the overall integrity of the concrete.
