Heavy Duty Woven Strong Mesh Wire
5.45mm hole heavy duty strong mesh wire in top quality 304 grade stainless steel made from 0.9mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a heavy woven mesh specification. 5.1mm aperture is fairly large to be woven to form a mesh netting, as a consequence it requires a thick wire to produce.
The mesh under discussion is made from 304-grade stainless steel, widely acknowledged for its superior durability and resistance to corrosion. This particular grade of stainless steel contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel, elements that greatly enhance its resilience against rust and oxidation. Moreover, the stainless steel used here is known for maintaining its structure and integrity under a wide range of temperatures, making it suitable for various applications. The mesh has been woven in a plain weave pattern, the most common and simplest method of weaving. In a plain weave, the warp (lengthwise) and weft (widthwise) wires cross over and under each other alternately, creating a uniform and consistent pattern. This gives the mesh a high level of strength and stability. The wire thickness of 0.9mm and hole size of 5.45mm strike a balance between strength and permeability, making this mesh versatile and adaptable. Whether you’re looking for a sturdy material for an outdoor project or something robust and reliable for an indoor DIY venture, this 304-grade, plain weave stainless steel mesh is an excellent choice.

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.

FAQs For This Product
Would This Strong Mesh Wire Be A Good Soil Sieve?
This heavy duty mesh make a great soil sieve material.
You will find this metal mesh to be of interest if you require very strong product for a filtration application. The stainless steel wire used to make this heavy duty mesh is 304 grade, which provides excellent corrosion resistance.
Due to the thick wire diameter of this 5.45mm hole heavy duty strong mesh wire would be ideal for rodent proofing, but would not be suitable for use as insect mesh.
Cutting would require the use of industrial tools. We cut this thickness of steel mesh using a guillotine in our factory.
Can This Mesh Wire Double As A Grill Grate For Barbecuing?
In theory, a strong, stainless steel mesh wire could potentially be used as a grill grate for barbecuing, but there are important considerations to take into account.
First, the mesh wire must be made from food-grade stainless steel to ensure it doesn’t release harmful substances when heated. Second, the wire thickness and size of the holes will affect its suitability. In this case, a 0.9mm thick wire with 5.45mm holes might not be the optimal choice for grilling certain types of food as smaller items could fall through the holes. Finally, hygiene is critical when cooking, and the mesh must be easy to clean and resistant to food sticking. If you can ensure the mesh meets these conditions, it could potentially serve as a DIY grill grate. However, it’s often simpler and safer to use a grill grate specifically designed for the purpose. Always ensure your setup is safe and suitable for cooking food.
We would advise you to look at this mesh instead.
Would This Mesh Wire Be Suitable For Creating An Outdoor Art Installation?
Absolutely, this mesh wire could be a fantastic material for creating an outdoor art installation. Its strength, durability, and resistance to weathering make it an excellent choice for outdoor use. Furthermore, the size of the wire (0.9mm thickness) and the hole (5.45mm) provide a perfect balance between structural integrity and flexibility, making it easy to mold into various shapes and designs. However, the practicality of using this mesh wire will depend on the specifics of your art project. For installations requiring finer details or smaller intricacies, a mesh with smaller holes might be more suitable. Remember, if you plan on cutting or reshaping the mesh wire, always use appropriate safety equipment, including gloves and eye protection, to prevent injury.
Could I Use It To Create A DIY Radiator Cover?
Yes, you could use mesh wire to create a DIY radiator cover. Its robust nature and ability to handle heat would make it an appropriate choice for such an application. The 0.9mm wire thickness and 5.45mm hole size would provide adequate ventilation to let heat escape while acting as a protective barrier to prevent direct contact with the radiator.
However, you should bear in mind that any cover should be properly installed to avoid contact with the radiator itself, which can get extremely hot. Also, consider the aesthetics and how well a strong mesh wire cover would fit into your room décor. Always ensure any DIY project aligns with safety standards and best practices.
