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
Why Is Stainless Steel Rat Mesh So Popular?
1/4″ stainless steel is considered to be an excellent material for various applications due to its unique properties. Here are some reasons why 1/4″ stainless steel is such a useful material:
- Corrosion Resistance: Stainless steel has high resistance to corrosion and oxidation, making it ideal for use in harsh environments such as marine or chemical plants. This is due to the presence of chromium in the alloy, which reacts with oxygen to form a thin, protective layer on the surface of the metal.
- Strength and Durability: Stainless steel has high strength and durability as its core characteristic. Thus it is resistant to wear and tear, and damage from impact or pressure. This makes it ideal for use in applications where high levels of strength are required.
- Aesthetic Appeal: Stainless steel has a sleek and modern appearance that can enhance the aesthetic appeal of a structure. This makes it a popular choice for use in architectural applications, such as decorative mesh or cladding. This mesh has a shinier look than the industry standard galvanised steel equivalent.
- Hygiene: Stainless steel is easy to clean and maintain, making it ideal for use in applications where hygiene is a concern, such as in food processing or medical equipment.
These characteristics make 304 stainless such a versatile and popular material. More importantly, they make stainless steel the ultimate choice for rodent control mesh.
Stainless Steel vs Galvanised Steel
When it comes to choosing between stainless steel and galvanised steel for 1/4″ welded mesh rat mesh, both materials have their advantages and disadvantages. Here are some key differences to consider:
- Offers excellent corrosion resistance and durability, making it ideal for outdoor applications where exposure to moisture and other harsh elements is a concern.
- Has a sleek and modern appearance that can enhance the aesthetic appeal of a structure.
- It more expensive to produce than galvanised steel.
- Has a zinc coating that provides good corrosion resistance and durability, making it suitable for outdoor applications.
- Is generally more cost-effective than stainless steel.
- May be more prone to rusting and deterioration over time, especially in highly corrosive environments.
If long-lasting durability and high resistance to corrosion are top priorities, then stainless steel may be the better choice. If cost-effectiveness is a priority and the application is not highly corrosive, then galvanised steel may be a more practical option.
What Is A Wire Mesh Welding Machine?
These rat mesh soffit rolls were produced using a welding machine. But what it one of those?
A wire mesh welding machine is a type of manufacture equipment that is designed specifically for the production of wire mesh products. It is used to weld wires together in a precise and consistent manner to create a mesh structure that can be used for a variety of applications.
Wire mesh welding machines typically use a resistance welding process, where an electrical current is passed through the wires to heat them up and create a weld at the point where they intersect. The machines can be fully automated or semi-automated, depending on the specific application and the level of production required. Our weld mesh is made in a full automated production process.
