Stainless Steel Woven Mesh Roll
Stainless steel coarse mesh in top quality 304 grade made from 0.4mm wire. As you can see from the image. This mesh is fairly coarse, but the holes are very small and not especially visible by naked eye. It is of interest to anyone who needs a coarse for any application. You would be able to bend this mesh by hand very easily. Once bent it would hold its shape.
The stainless steel mesh roll is a robust and durable material crafted from 304-grade stainless steel, known for its resilience and resistance to rust. The mesh features a coarse weave, with 18 wires per linear inch, translating to a total of 324 wires per square inch. Each wire in the weave has a thickness of 0.4mm, ensuring that the mesh remains sturdy yet flexible. The mesh’s hole size or aperture stands at 1.01mm, allowing for a moderate flow of air, light, and liquids, depending on its application.
A key benefit of this mesh is its 51% open area, striking a balance between solidity and permeability. This makes it versatile and suitable for various applications, from fencing to filtration and crafts. Another notable feature is its ease of customization. Though robust, the mesh can be efficiently cut to desired sizes using tin snips or even standard kitchen scissors, giving users the flexibility to shape it for their specific needs.

Wait!! Before you order your mesh please first check out our clearance listing which is where we put all of our over-run bargain rolls at reduced prices. You never know, you might find just the roll that you need for your purposes.
We also offer a massive range of 304 stainless steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce stainless 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.

The coarse weave of the stainless steel mesh roll makes it versatile for a range of applications. Its design is similar to a kitchen sieve, allowing for moderate airflow and filtration. Some of the best-suited applications include:
- Filtration: Ideal for separating larger particles from liquids or fine substances in both industrial and domestic settings.
- Crafts: Can be used in artistic projects for its unique texture and appearance.
- Ventilation: Can be used in vents or exhaust systems to allow air passage while filtering out larger debris.
- Safety Screens: In machinery or tools, it can act as a protective barrier to prevent large particles from passing through.
- Food Preparation: As a strainer or sifter for ingredients, given its similarity to kitchen sieves.
- Home Improvement: Acts as a protective or decorative element in cabinetry, doors, or windows.
What Is The Hole Size Or Aperture Of The Stainless Steel Mesh Roll?
The holes are 1mm in each direction. There are 18 holes per linear inch and 324 per square inch.
How Do I Seam Or Join Pieces Of The Stainless Steel Mesh Roll Together?
Joining or seaming pieces of the stainless steel mesh roll together requires a few steps to ensure a strong and durable connection. Here’s a straightforward method to do so:
- Preparation: Begin by ensuring that the edges of the mesh pieces you intend to join are straight and free of any burrs or protruding wires.
- Overlap Method:
- Overlap the two edges of the mesh by at least an inch or more.
- Use stainless steel wire or cable ties to weave the pieces together at regular intervals, ensuring a tight fit.
- Trim any excess wire or ties for a neat finish.
- If you’re looking for a more permanent bond, soldering is an option. Ensure the mesh is clean and free from dirt.
- Use a soldering iron and stainless steel-compatible solder to join the overlapping sections. Ensure a well-ventilated area, and always wear safety gear.
- For an even stronger bond, especially for heavy-duty applications, you can weld the seams. This requires expertise and the right equipment. TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is recommended for stainless steel.
- Clean the areas to be welded and ensure they are closely aligned without gaps.
- Weld along the seam, ensuring complete penetration for a strong bond.
- Joining Clips or Clamps:
- Stainless steel clips or clamps can be used to join the edges of the mesh. These can be particularly useful for temporary setups or if you anticipate needing to reposition the mesh in the future.
- There are high-strength adhesives available that can bond metal surfaces, including stainless steel. Ensure the surfaces are clean and apply the adhesive as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This method is less common and may not provide as robust a bond as other methods.
