FAQs For This Product
How Strong Is 1.2mm Thick Rodent Wire Mesh?
The strength of a 1.2mm thick stainless steel woven wire mesh can be considerable. As always, it’s important to remember that the overall strength will be influenced by several factors, including the type of stainless steel used, the number of holes per linear inch, and the diameter of each hole.
In this case, having 4 holes per linear inch with each hole being 5mm in diameter provides a good balance of strength and permeability. The lower number of holes per linear inch means that there’s more steel present, which would generally make the mesh stronger.
The 1.2mm thickness of the wire does offer significant rigidity and durability, making it resistant to impact, stretching, and tearing. It should be able to withstand substantial weight and pressure without deforming, although the exact amount it can bear would depend on the specifics of the application.
However, while a stainless steel woven wire mesh of this specification is strong, it’s important to understand that the introduction of holes (even at 4 per linear inch) does reduce the overall strength somewhat compared to a solid sheet of stainless steel of the same thickness. Despite this, the mesh should still be more than capable for most typical applications, including filtration, security, and rodent-proofing.
As always, if you have specific strength requirements for your project, it’s a good idea to consult with an engineer or the mesh supplier.
Is This The Strongest Woven Wire Size?
No, whilst this is one of the thickest wires that can be woven into mesh, we do offer 1.6mm wire thickness. This is slightly thicker and, as a result, stronger.
4 mesh made with a 1.2mm thick wire is very strong in its own right however.
How Rodent Proof Is It?
A 1.2mm thick stainless steel woven wire mesh with 4 holes per linear inch (5mm hole size) can provide a strong barrier against most rodents.
Rodents, such as mice and rats, have a well-known ability to squeeze through small gaps. However, a hole size of 5mm is small enough to prevent adult rodents from passing through. Given the thickness and strength of the 1.2mm stainless steel mesh, it should be highly resistant to gnawing, which is an important consideration since rodents can often chew through softer materials.
