Mild Steel Perforated Metal Mesh Sheet
2.5mm mild steel perforated metal mesh sheet is produced by punching flat sheet metal with a specific pattern. This is driven by the customer’s requirement for the metal for cosmetic or application purposes.
The mesh metal sheet is a durable and versatile material designed with precision to cater to a variety of needs. Made from mild steel, the mesh boasts a thickness of 1.5mm, ensuring robustness and longevity in its applications. One of the standout features of this mesh is its round hole staggered pitch design. Each hole is 2.5mm in diameter, with a pitch of 4mm, indicating the distance from the beginning of one hole to the next. This design not only gives the mesh its distinctive appearance but also provides it with a balanced distribution of open spaces, making it an optimal choice for both protective and decorative purposes.
Given the perforation specification of R2.5 T4, users can expect a consistent and symmetrical pattern throughout the sheet, which can be beneficial for projects requiring a uniform look. The mesh metal sheet’s inherent properties make it suitable for applications like ventilation, filtration, protection, and even aesthetic implementations like room dividers or decorative panels.

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
Stainless Steel vs Aluminium Mesh Mesh Sheet
Stainless steel and aluminium are two commonly used materials for perforated mesh sheets, each offering its own advantages and properties. The strength and durability of stainless steel make it an excellent choice for heavy-duty applications or environments prone to corrosion. Its resistance to rust, coupled with its non-reactive nature, often makes it preferable for applications involving chemicals or moisture.
In contrast, aluminium is lighter in weight, which can be advantageous for applications that require ease of installation or transportation. Additionally, it is naturally corrosion-resistant, especially when anodized. Aluminum may not be as strong as stainless steel, but it is more malleable, making it easier to shape or bend. There are several factors to consider when choosing stainless steel or aluminium perforated mesh sheets, including weight, strength, corrosion resistance, and budget.
How Does The Mesh Metal Sheet Handle Moisture?
The 304 stainless steel mesh metal sheet exhibits excellent resistance to moisture due to its inherent properties. A particular characteristic of the 304 grade is its resistance to oxidation and corrosion in a variety of environments. In steel, chromium reacts with oxygen when exposed to moisture, forming a passive layer of chromium oxide. Water and oxygen are prevented from directly contacting the underlying metal by this layer. The staggered round hole design, with a 2.5mm aperture and 4mm pitch, facilitates good airflow and drainage, reducing the chances of water pooling on the sheet. Despite consistent moisture exposure, the sheet’s 1.5mm thickness ensures durability. Consequently, this mesh metal sheet not only provides aesthetic appeal and functionality, but also ensures longevity under moist or wet conditions.
Is This Stainless Perforated Metal Sheet UV Resistant?
Yes, the 304 stainless steel perforated metal sheet is inherently UV resistant. In contrast to some other materials, stainless steel does not degrade or break down when exposed to sunlight or UV radiation. Due to its non-reactive nature and the passive protective layer formed by chromium oxide, stainless steel is UV resistant. Stainless steel remains unaffected by UV rays, which can brittle, fade, or weaken some materials over time. As a result, users can expect the perforated metal sheet to retain its strength and appearance even if it is placed in direct sunlight.
