Square Mild Steel Perforated Mesh Sheet Metal
3mm square mild steel mesh sheet metal 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 sheet metal, made of mild steel, boasts a distinct square hole even pitch design. With a perforation classified as C3 U5, it’s characterised by 3mm square holes evenly spaced across the material. The pitch, which stands at 5mm, signifies the distance from the beginning of one hole to the start of the next. Essentially, this encompasses the hole’s size plus the gap in between each perforation.
With a thickness of just 1mm, this flat sheet metal combines durability with a sleek appearance. The use of mild steel ensures strength, making it a reliable material for various applications, from industrial settings to design projects. Its even perforation offers consistent airflow and filtration capabilities, making it an excellent choice for ventilation systems, protective barriers, and architectural design elements. Furthermore, the uniform square holes offer both a pleasing aesthetic and functional utility, ensuring a balance between visual appeal and performance.

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 Resistant Is Mild Steel To Rust?
Steel that is low in carbon is susceptible to rusting when exposed to moisture and oxygen. It is inevitable that mild steel will oxidise in the presence of these elements over time, resulting in iron oxide and rust. This susceptibility is due to the high iron content in mild steel and its lack of alloying elements that might offer corrosion resistance.
A protective layer such as paint, powder coating, or galvanising can enhance mild steel’s rust resistance. In particular, galvanising involves coating steel with zinc, which provides a barrier against moisture and oxygen, reducing the risk of rusting.
Can This Mesh Sheet Metal Be Welded Or Fabricated?
sheet metal made of mild steel can be welded and fabricated. Many fabrication projects use mild steel because of its excellent weldability. Whether using MIG, TIG, or stick welding, mild steel can be effectively joined to other mild steel components. Due to the thinness of mesh sheet metal, it’s essential to ensure proper penetration when welding.
Furthermore, mild steel can also be cut, bent, and shaped. With the right tools and techniques, the mesh design can be effectively manipulated to fit the desired application despite some unique challenges during fabrication.
Does The Square Hole Design Benefit Ventilation?
Yes, the square hole design in the mesh sheet metal significantly benefits ventilation. The uniform and consistent pattern of square holes allows for a steady and even airflow through the material. The design ensures that a substantial portion of the sheet’s surface area is open, facilitating efficient circulation of air.
This feature makes the square hole mesh sheet metal particularly useful for applications where ventilation is crucial, such as:
- HVAC systems and vents: Ensuring optimal airflow while acting as a barrier to larger debris.
- Machine guards: Offering protection while allowing machines to cool through airflow.
- Architectural facades: Providing aesthetics while ensuring indoor-outdoor air exchange.
- Industrial filters: Separating particulate matter while letting air or fluids pass through.
