Hexagonal Perforated Steel Mesh Plate
6mm hexagonal perforated steel mesh plate 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.
The steel mesh plate is a precisely engineered mild steel perforated metal sheet designed for versatility and durability. The hexagonal pattern, which is one of its defining features, provides both an aesthetic appeal and functional benefits. Each hole in the pattern is a round 6mm aperture, ensuring consistency across the sheet. Positioned at a pitch of 6.7mm, the design takes into account the hole size as well as the gap between them. This specific configuration allows for an optimal balance between open space and material strength. With a thickness of 1.5mm, this flat sheet ensures rigidity while still being manageable for various applications.
Benefits of using the steel mesh plate include its adaptability to different projects, whether they’re for decorative purposes, such as in architecture and interior design, or functional ones, like in filtration or protection. The mild steel composition of the sheet provides a reliable foundation, especially when strength and durability are crucial. However, it’s worth noting that, like all mild steel products, proper maintenance and protection against elements are essential to prevent corrosion.

We also offer a massive range of mild steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce mild 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
Can The Steel Mesh Plate Be Used In Marine Environments?
Using the steel mesh plate in marine environments requires consideration. Mild steel, which is the primary material of the steel mesh plate, is susceptible to corrosion, especially when exposed to the salt and moisture prevalent in marine settings. Steel plates can rust over time due to the salty sea air and water, which may compromise their integrity and appearance.
It is essential to take protective measures if the application must be used in such conditions. Depending on the mesh, it can be coated or painted to prevent rust, or it can be maintained and cleaned regularly to remove salt deposits. If you are working in a marine environment, stainless steel, especially marine-grade stainless steels like 316 stainless steel, is often recommended as a corrosion-resistant material.
Are There Alternatives To The Hexagonal Pattern Available?
Is The Steel Mesh Plate Suitable For Outdoor Use?
The primary material of the steel mesh plate is mild steel, which, while durable, is prone to rusting when exposed to moisture and varying weather conditions over extended periods.
For prolonged outdoor use, it’s advisable to:
- Apply a protective coating: A rust-resistant paint or powder coating can act as a barrier against the elements, helping to prevent corrosion.
- Regular maintenance: Regularly cleaning the steel mesh plate to remove debris and potential moisture-trapping elements will extend its lifespan.
- Positioning: If possible, install the steel mesh plate in areas where it’s less exposed to direct rainfall or standing water. This will reduce its exposure to moisture.
- Consider environment: In areas with high humidity or coastal regions with salty air, additional protective measures or more frequent maintenance may be required.
