5mm Stainless Drain Mesh Cover Material
This 304 stainless steel woven wire is a practical and durable solution for various applications, one of its primary uses being as a mesh drain cover material. What sets it apart is its unique feature where one side lays flat, making it ideal for surfaces that require a smooth finish. The mesh boasts a count of 3.9 holes per linear inch, which means there’s a good balance between the strength of the mesh and the flow of liquid through it.
When it comes to its specifications, the wire thickness stands at 1.5mm, ensuring that it’s super heavy duty and can withstand significant weight and pressure. The hole size or aperture is 5mm, which is optimum for filtering debris while allowing water to pass through effortlessly. This size ensures that larger particles or debris won’t pass through, making it ideal as a drain cover, especially in areas with a higher risk of blockage.
For those concerned about installation or adjustments, this woven wire mesh can be easily cut using a guillotine or an angle grinder, providing flexibility in its use. The advantage of the flat side becomes apparent when used as a drain cover, as it provides a level surface, reducing any tripping hazards or unevenness on the ground. When considering a solution for drain covers, this mesh not only offers functionality but also the durability of 304 stainless steel, ensuring it remains rust-free and maintains its integrity for a long time.
We also offer this mesh with a hole size that is twice as large. This is an extremely popular woven mesh material.

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.
