By blocking off potential entry points, rodents can be prevented from entering. You should use a rodent proof sealant or wire mesh to block off possible entry points. Rat proof mesh is a low-cost product that can be effectively utilized by both professionals and individuals.
Rodent Control Mesh
1/4″ welded mesh can be an effective tool for rodent control as it provides a barrier that prevents rodents from accessing an area while still allowing for adequate ventilation. This type of rat proof mesh can be used to cover openings in structures such as soffits, gables, eaves, vents, chimneys, and crawl spaces, effectively blocking rodents from entering the area. The mesh acts as a tacit pest filter, and thus makes an excellent deterrent.
Additionally, 1/4″ welded mesh can be used to create barriers around gardens and other outdoor areas, preventing rodents from accessing plants and other food sources. The welded construction of the mesh provides added strength and durability, making it resistant to damage from chewing and other rodent activity.
Overall, 1/4″ welded mesh is a versatile and effective solution for rodent control in a variety of settings.
Rat Mesh Specification:
- STRONG MESH – This 1/4″ x 1/4″ stainless steel welded has a square hole size of just over 5mm which makes it the ideal rodent proof wire mesh
- GREAT TO USE – Rodent wire should be easy to cut and use as required. This mouse proof mesh is easy to cut with scissors and can be bent to suit as it’s welded, which is naturally more flexible than other types
- Bending & Forming – Good. You could bend this mesh by hand and it would retain its shape
- Corrosion Resistance – Very good. 304 grade stainless steel offers good resistance to many corrosive elements, however 316 is preferable for marine and aquatic applications
- Heat Resistance – Good. 304 grade stainless steel offers a good level of resistance to heat
- Machinability – Good. Mild steel is the metal choice for many forms of machining and grinding, but stainless steel can also offer good results
- Welding – Very good. You could easily weld with this mesh to suit your requirements
- Painting – Poor. We suggest that a mild steel product is used when a layer of paint needs to be applied. Galvanised and stainless steel will not take pain

FAQs For This Product
Does Stainless Steel Welded Mesh Rust?
Nothing it 100% rust proof. That is why is it called stain-less and not stain-proof. However stainless welded mesh is a corrosion-resistant material that contains chromium and other alloying elements. As a result, stainless welded mesh is highly resistant to rust and corrosion in most normal conditions.
However, if the stainless welded mesh is exposed to harsh environments such as high levels of chloride, high temperatures, or prolonged exposure to moisture, it can still rust or corrode. In addition, if the welded mesh is not properly maintained or cleaned, it may develop surface rust over time.
To ensure the longevity of stainless welded mesh, it is important to select the appropriate grade of stainless steel for the intended application and to properly clean and maintain the mesh over time. Regular cleaning and inspections can help to prevent rust and corrosion and extend the lifespan of the mesh. We would suggest that this stainless steel will work without issue everywhere apart from by the coast, where the added salt in the air requires 316 grade.
What Is Woven Wire Rodent Mesh And Welded Wire Rodent Mesh?
Woven wire rodent mesh and welded wire rodent mesh are two types of wire mesh used to prevent rodents from accessing specific areas. Both do the same job, in essence they filter out a rodent in the same way that mesh filters out particles.
Woven wire mesh is made by weaving wires together in a crisscross pattern to create a mesh with small holes. This type of mesh is popularly used to prevent rodents from entering garden beds, attics, and crawl spaces. It is typically made from copper, galvanised steel or stainless steel wire, which makes it resistant to corrosion and rust.
Welded wire rodent mesh, on the other hand, is made by welding wires together at their intersection points to create a grid-like pattern. This type of mesh is often used for larger areas where a more robust and rigid barrier is needed. It is also commonly made from galvanised or stainless steel wire and is suitable for outdoor use as it is resistant to corrosion and rust.
Both types of rodent mesh are effective in preventing rodents from accessing specific areas.
Stainless steel lasts longer and gives higher resistance to corrosion. Galvanised steel is lower in production cost and, consequently, final price.
Can Steel And Stainless Steel Be Welded Together?
Yes, steel and stainless steel wire mesh can be welded together. However, it is important to consider the different properties of these two materials before welding them together.
Plain steel wire mesh is typically made from carbon steel, which has a lower chromium content than stainless steel. This makes carbon steel more susceptible to rust and corrosion when exposed to moisture or acidic environments. Stainless steel wire mesh, on the other hand, contains higher amounts of chromium and other alloying elements, making it more resistant to rust and corrosion.
When welding steel and stainless steel wire mesh together, it is important to use the appropriate welding technique and filler material to prevent galvanic corrosion. Galvanic corrosion can occur when two dissimilar metals are welded together and exposed to moisture or other corrosive environments.
To avoid galvanic corrosion, it is recommended to use a filler material that is compatible with both materials, such as a stainless steel filler rod.
Additionally, the weld should be properly cleaned and protected from moisture to prevent corrosion over time. We have an on site welding department here to cover our offshore oil rig department.
