Mild Steel Perforated Mesh
11mm hexagonal mild steel perforated mesh is produced by punching flat sheet metal with a specific hexagonal pattern. This is driven by the customer’s requirement for the metal for cosmetic or application purposes.
Perforated mesh is a versatile and functional material that can be used in a variety of applications. One of our most popular types of perforated metal is mild steel hexagonal mesh, which boasts a hole size of 11mm and a pitch of 14mm. With a thickness of 1mm and a flat sheet design, this perforated mesh is perfect for a range of industrial and commercial uses. The precise hole and pitch measurements mean that the mesh can be used for everything from screening and straining to structural support and decorative cladding. Whether you need to create a durable and long-lasting barrier or want to add a touch of visual interest to your space, mild steel hexagonal mesh is an excellent choice. With its sturdy construction and reliable performance, it’s no wonder that so many professionals rely on this versatile material.

We also offer a massive range of stainless steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce stainless steel perforated metal sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with round or square holes. 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
What Can This Mesh Filter?
An 11mm hexagonal perforated metal sheet has holes in the shape of hexagons, each measuring 11mm from corner to corner (also called the “across flats” dimension).
Objects that will pass through these holes will largely depend on their size and shape. Here are a few general examples:
- Solid particles: Any particle or small object smaller than the smallest diameter of the hexagonal hole (approximately 9.5mm, if the hole is regular) can pass through it.
- Liquids: Any liquid can pass through the perforations, provided the surface tension doesn’t cause it to bead up on the surface.
- Gases: Similarly, any gas will also be able to pass through the perforations.
- Light and Sound: These can pass through the holes, but the pattern of the holes may influence how they are dispersed or refracted.
How Long Will Mild Steel Last?
The longevity of mild steel greatly depends on the conditions it is subjected to. Mild steel is prone to rust when it’s exposed to moisture and oxygen, which can significantly shorten its lifespan. Here are some general estimates:
- Indoor, Dry Conditions: If mild steel is kept in a dry, indoor environment, it can last for many years without showing significant signs of wear or corrosion.
- Outdoor, Exposed Conditions: If mild steel is exposed to the elements outdoors without any form of protection, it can start to rust within a few weeks to a few months, and severe rust could develop within a few years.
- Outdoor, Protected Conditions: If the mild steel is protected with a rust-proof coating, paint, or galvanized, it can last many years outdoors. The quality and upkeep of the coating can also impact how long it lasts.
- Harsh Conditions: In marine environments or places with a lot of pollution or acidic conditions, even protected mild steel may only last a few years before significant corrosion sets in.
