Stainless Steel Heavy Wire Mesh Rodent Proof
2.47mm hole heavy duty wire mesh rodent proof in top quality 304 grade stainless steel made from 0.71mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a heavy woven mesh specification. 3.3mm aperture is fairly large to be woven to form a mesh netting, as a consequence it requires a thick wire to produce.
The stainless steel woven wire mesh is a versatile and resilient material that offers a range of benefits for various applications. One primary use is for beehive floors. The mesh ensures that the hive remains ventilated, allowing for better air circulation, which is crucial for the health and productivity of the bees. With a mesh count of 8 holes per linear inch and a total of 64 holes per square inch, it strikes a balance between ventilation and protection, ensuring bees remain safe while keeping pests and rodents at bay.
The wire thickness stands at 0.71mm, ensuring durability while not compromising on flexibility. The hole size or aperture measures 2.47mm, providing adequate space for optimal airflow. A significant feature of this mesh is its open area percentage, which is at 60%. This high open area ensures that the mesh doesn’t hinder the movement of air, essential for the bees’ health and honey production.

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.

FAQs For This Product
How Effective Is This Wire Mesh In Keeping Out Mice And Rats?
The stainless steel wire mesh rodent proof screen is highly effective in keeping out both mice and rats. Even the smallest rodents cannot squeeze through its design specifications, including a hole size/aperture of 2.47mm and wire thickness of 0.71mm. Additionally, stainless steel resists chewing, a behavior often seen in rodents trying to gain access. The robust nature of the material combined with its tight weave pattern means rodents can’t easily penetrate or damage it. Furthermore, stainless steel mesh maintains its rodent-proofing capabilities for extended periods without needing to be replaced frequently due to its durability and longevity. When properly installed, this wire mesh serves as a formidable barrier against rodent intrusions.
How Long Does The Stainless Steel Last In Outdoor Conditions?
Stainless steel is renowned for its durability, especially in outdoor conditions. It is naturally resistant to corrosion, rusting, and staining, especially when compared to regular steel. In most typical outdoor environments, stainless steel woven wire mesh can last for several decades without showing significant wear or degradation. Its longevity can be attributed to the formation of a passive protective layer of chromium oxide on its surface, which prevents further corrosion. However, in more aggressive environments, such as coastal areas with high salinity or areas with high pollution levels, maintenance might be required occasionally to retain its pristine condition.
Can I Install This Mesh In My Attic For Rodent Proofing?
Yes, you can install this stainless steel woven wire mesh in your attic for rodent proofing. Its design, with a hole size of 2.47mm, is effective in preventing both mice and rats from gaining access. In attics, where temperatures and humidity can fluctuate, stainless steel is durable and rust-resistant. If installed correctly, with no gaps or weak points, the mesh acts as a formidable barrier, keeping rodents out of your attic. Airflow is not significantly obstructed by the 60% open area, which keeps pests out while maintaining good ventilation. To maximise rodent-proofing effectiveness, ensure a snug fit around edges and corners.
