Industrial Welded Mesh Wires

Industrial welded mesh is basically a screen that is made of metal with wires that are placed in a crisscross way. This mesh is made of stainless steel wire ( or sometimes in other materials depending on its application) to avoid corrosion and rust. The industrial welded mesh is generally used for a number of purposes and available in different sizes and shapes. It is very much related to the engineering, procurement and construction industry.

Application of Industrial Wire Mesh

Application of industrial welded mesh varies from infrastructural projects, industries, construction sites,  commercial sites, agriculture as well as residential areas. It is also used in manhole chambers, tunnels and parking lots.

Wire meshes are also used for security reasons. It helps to keep people out of the secured premises and to protect people within. The welded mesh is available in different styles and colors to suit different premises. It ranges in different heights and are available in most of the online stores. It can be obtained in the form of rolls.

In addition to security measures, the stainless steel wire meshes are also used as a protection against rodents, pests and other animals. It has very tiny holes and is made of plastic or stainless steel or aluminium. Welded mesh is widely used for construction purposes like paving of roads which include paving of highways and airport roads. It is also used for the construction of floors along with concrete slabs to ensure strength and durability. Mostly anti rust wire mesh is used for construction purposes as it does not yield to corrosion or rust.

Various Types of Welded Mesh

There are various types of wire mesh that can be easily obtained from the markets today due to its increasing usage and many advantageous features.

PVC coated mesh: made of top quality stainless steel iron, it is coated in PVC to augment its durability. The anti-corrosion wire is covered in PVC and is extremely useful in fencing apartments, homes and office buildings. Available in a range of colors like black, white and green, this mesh can be obtained in the form of panels and rolls.

Square opening electro galvanised wire mesh: this mesh is also available in different colors and sizes and is mainly used for fencing of buildings. Available in rolls and panels, it is mainly used for structural buildings.

Galvanised mesh with zinc covering: this is another variety of welded mesh that includes stainless steel metal dipped in hot zinc. It is most appropriate for grating purpose, animal cages, grilling and for protection of machines.

Wire panels: available in the form of panels, it is used mainly for fencing purposes. Though it is available in both galvanised and non-galvanised forms, these meshed panels are widely used for fencing buildings and parks.

A variety of wire mesh of different shapes and sizes can be obtained from the numerous welded mesh manufacturers. One such reputable one is Siddal & Hilton, a leading European manufacturer of steel wire fence and welded mesh products based in UK. To have better comprehension on the various types of industrial welded mesh wire, lets check out the following product manufactured by Siddal & Hilton:

Figure 1: D49 Construction Mesh - Manufactured from 2.5mm copper washed drawn mild steel wire and conforming to BS 1052:1980, this construction mesh which is manufactured to the latest standards, suitable for construction reinforcement, is resistance welded at every intersection and CARES approved.

Figure 2: Standard Mesh - This standard mesh is manufactured from copper-washed drawn mild steel wire and conforms to BS 1052:1980. It is available in both copper wash (self colour), hot dip Galvanised and Galfan finishes. The wire mesh is welded at every intersection to give maximum strength.

Figure 3: Stainless steel mesh - This stainless steel mesh panels has bespoke sizes and materials supported by a variety of mesh configurations. Welds at all intersections give maximum strength.
Figure 4: Gabion Mesh - Typical mesh aperture is 3" (76.2mm) though special designs. Typical applications for these products are for land reinforcement and soil retention, acoustic barriers, military defence barriers, river, flood and coastal protection and domestic garden walls and features.
