Galvanised Steel Mesh Sheets
Perforated metal galvanised steel mesh sheets are produced by punching flat galvanised plate with a specific round pattern. The customer’s requirement for metal for cosmetic or application purposes drives this decision.
The galvanised steel mesh sheets are a testament to practical design, offering both durability and versatility. Constructed with a 3mm round hole aperture, these sheets are meticulously designed to ensure consistency and precision. The pitch, measured at 5mm, is the distance from the start of one hole to the next, accounting for the hole itself and the 2mm gap between holes. This configuration ensures optimal spacing and uniformity, which is crucial for its varied applications.
With a thickness of 0.7mm, the flat sheet strikes a balance between robustness and flexibility. This means it can be moulded or shaped as per requirement without compromising its structural integrity. The galvanised coating further enhances its resilience, granting the sheet a significant resistance to corrosion. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor projects or environments where moisture is a concern.
Specification Of This Mesh:
- Hole Size (Aperture) – 3mm round hole
- Pitch – 5mm. You can measure the pitch from the start of one hole to the next or the hole size plus the gap between the hole
- Thickness – 0.7mm thick flat sheet
- Pattern – Triangular
Sheets with perforations are commonly used to allow air to pass through. Ventilation and filtration are the main uses for this mesh type. Rodent proofing is another use for perforated sheeting.

We also offer a massive range of hexagonal hole galvanised metal sheet options from immediate stock.
In order to produce galvanised steel hexagonal perforated metal mesh sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with a hexagonal hole. Perforated sheets are commonly often used in applications where the passing of air is required. Because the holes are punched, it is possible to have a far stronger finished metal product than it would be for the equivalent thickness in woven or welded mesh.
FAQs For This Product
How Long Would Galvanised Steel Mesh Sheets Last?
Depending on environmental conditions and maintenance, galvanised steel mesh sheets usually last between 20 and 50 years. By protecting the sheet from corrosion, the galvanisation process extends its life. However, in highly saline or acidic environments, the lifespan might be reduced. Further extending the lifespan of your equipment can be achieved through regular inspections and minimal maintenance.
Which Is More Popular Out Of Round And Square Hole Mesh Sheets?
The Mesh Company offer an enormous range of round and square hole galvanised steel mesh sheets.
Mesh sheets are typically designed with round or square holes depending on the application and aesthetic preferences. Round holes are often used for decorative purposes due to their smooth appearance, while their design is especially effective for filtration and minimises particle trapping. By contrast, square holes have a distinct geometric look that aligns well with modern designs, and their straight lines and uniform spacing can sometimes improve airflow. In manufacturing, round holes might be slightly more material-efficient, as their curves can be closely packed. However, in terms of durability, both shapes have their merits, with the perceived strength often depending on the material and production process rather than the hole shape. In response to changing industry needs and design trends, either design often fluctuates in popularity.
What Weight Or Pressure Can These Sheets Bear?
The weight or pressure that the galvanised steel mesh sheets can bear is contingent on several factors, including their thickness, hole size, pattern, and overall design. With a thickness of 0.7mm, these sheets are engineered to provide a balance between flexibility and sturdiness.
When discussing weight bearing or load capacity, it’s essential to differentiate between two types of loads:
- Uniform Distributed Load (UDL): This refers to a consistent weight or force spread across the entire surface of the mesh. The galvanised steel mesh sheets, due to their structural integrity and the rigidity imparted by the galvanising process, can typically support a substantial UDL, especially when properly supported along the edges or at regular intervals.
- Point Load: This is a concentrated force or weight applied to a specific point on the mesh. The capacity to bear a point load can be less than that of a UDL, especially near the centre or unsupported regions of the sheet.
The triangular pattern further augments the mesh’s strength. Triangular patterns, due to their geometric configuration, distribute stresses more evenly, thus potentially increasing weight-bearing capacity.
