Stainless Steel Rodent Proof Wire Mesh
1.14mm hole coarse woven stainless steel rodent proof wire mesh in top quality 304 grade made from 0.45mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a coarse mesh specification. 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.
This 304-grade woven wire mesh is tailored for rodent proofing, ensuring that spaces remain free from unwanted pests while maintaining airflow and visibility. With 16 holes per linear inch, resulting in 256 holes per square inch, it offers a tight weave pattern, sufficient to deter even the smallest of rodents. The wire has a thickness of 0.45mm, which offers a balanced combination of flexibility and strength. This means that while the mesh can be easily shaped to fit various spaces, its resilience against potential intruders remains uncompromised.
The hole size or aperture stands at 1.14mm. This size is strategically chosen to ensure rodents are kept out while not overly restricting airflow or visibility. The mesh boasts an open area percentage of 51%, indicative of its ability to allow a good amount of light and air to pass through. Such a feature is especially useful in spaces where ventilation is essential, but the intrusion of pests is a concern.
For those looking to customise the size or shape of their mesh, it’s easily cut with standard kitchen scissors or tin snips, offering adaptability to the user’s specific needs. Whether it’s for homes, businesses, or outdoor areas, this rodent proof wire mesh ensures peace of mind without the need for harmful chemicals or complicated installations.

FAQs For This Product
How Effective Is The Rodent Proof Wire Mesh In Preventing Rodent Entry?
Rodent Proof Wire Mesh has a hole size of 1.14mm, making it highly effective at preventing rodent entry. A tight weave of the mesh makes it nearly impossible for common pests, such as mice, rats, and other small rodents, to penetrate or chew through it, making it a durable barrier against pest infestations, like mice, rats, and other small rodents.
Can The Mesh Be Installed In Vents For Rodent Control?
Yes, the rodent proof wire mesh is ideal for installation in vents. Its 1.14mm hole size effectively blocks rodents while maintaining airflow. Installing it in vents can help prevent rodents from entering and infesting your home or building, ensuring a rodent-free environment.
Does The Rodent Proof Wire Mesh Also Keep Out Other Pests?
Certainly. The rodent proof wire mesh, while specifically designed for preventing rodent entry, has benefits that extend to other pests due to its design specifications.
The 1.14mm aperture of the mesh is sufficiently small to block out a range of pests. Here’s a breakdown of its effectiveness against various pests:
- Mice and Rats: The primary purpose of this mesh is to prevent these common rodents from gaining access. Mice can squeeze through spaces as small as 6mm, so the 1.14mm aperture is far too small for them.
- Insects: Many larger insects, such as beetles, cockroaches, and crickets, will be effectively blocked by this mesh. Some smaller insects like large ants might also be deterred, but it’s worth noting that the tiniest of insects could still pass through.
- Birds: Smaller birds that might try to nest in vents or other openings will be blocked by this mesh.
- Bats: These creatures are known to squeeze into surprisingly small areas, but the rodent proof wire mesh will effectively prevent them from entering spaces protected by the mesh.
- Larger pests: While it might seem obvious, it’s worth noting that larger pests like raccoons, opossums, and squirrels will also be prevented from accessing areas covered by the mesh.
However, it’s crucial to install the mesh correctly, ensuring there are no gaps or spaces around its edges, which pests might exploit. Also, remember that while the mesh is effective in blocking physical access, it doesn’t deter pests from being attracted to a location, so it’s essential to combine its use with good sanitation and other preventive measures.
