Fly mesh made from stainless steel is ideal for keeping insects out. It is woven to produce small holes of 0.42mm x 0.42m. In light of the material’s flexibility, it may require a frame in order to add rigidity. Rolls are available in a range of widths and lengths that are suitable for diverse applications. For use on soffits or behind cladding, the 10 cm to 30 cm wide rolls are perfect. These wider rolls are ideal for producing insect screens, or for covering large areas such as roofs.
The mesh is light and affordable and ideal for this purpose.
Below are the specifications of this 0.41mm fine steel mesh:
- Mesh Count = 40 holes per linear inch. The amount of holes measured against a straight line inch
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 1,600 holes per square inch. The amount of holes per linear inch squared
- Wire Thickness = 0.22mm. The thickness of each wire. The structure is thicker than this where two wires meet
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.41mm. This is the square hole size from wire to wire
- Open Area % = 42%. The amount of the mesh that is open. The higher this number the more open a mesh is. This is a very high open area%
- Cut With – We cut this mesh with standard kitchen scissors. We suggest that you do the same
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 mild steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce mild 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 Mesh Company has an enormous range of wire mesh products. We truly are an industry leader among suppliers of weld mesh and woven wire materials. With the capabilities we have in-house, we can provide virtually anything you require. Chicken wire, insect meshing and rodent mesh materials are also available in large stock quantities at bargain prices.
FAQs For This Product
Which Hole Size Blocks Midges?
Midges are very small insects, and they can pass through many types of mesh that are designed to block larger insects such as flies and mosquitoes. However, there are specific mesh sizes that are effective at blocking midges. In general, a mesh size of 18-20 holes per inch is adequate for blocking midges. This size is small enough to prevent midges from passing through while still allowing air and light to flow through the mesh. This range gives holes that are around 1mm.
For extra fine midge protection we recommend something with twice as many holes, and as such a hole size of around 0.4mm. This product is ideal for that purpose, along with our stainless steel and brass options (if those metals work better for your requirement).
What Type Area Would Be Best For This Mesh?
This mesh is not a fabric. The wires are too thick.
We recommend using this mesh behind a soffit, vent or gap. See our guide on soffit vent mesh for more information on this type of project.
How Do I Cut Ultra Fine Midge Mesh?
Cutting fine woven wire mesh can be tricky as the wires are very thin and may require special tools to ensure a clean cut. Here are some steps you can follow:
- Determine the size and shape of the cut you need to make on the wire mesh.
- Use a straightedge or ruler to mark the cut line on the wire mesh. You can use a marker or a pencil to make the mark.
- Use a pair of wire cutters or diagonal cutters to cut the wire mesh along the marked line. Be sure to use a sharp and precise tool to avoid damaging the wire mesh.
- If you find it difficult to cut the mesh with wire cutters or diagonal cutters, you can try using a pair of scissors or a utility knife. Be careful when using a knife as it can be dangerous if not used properly. We would always use scissors to cut this mesh.
- Once you have made the cut, use a pair of pliers to bend the cut edge back and forth to remove any burrs or sharp edges.
Can I Fold This Mesh?
Yes, but again it is not a fabric. It will fold and hold its shape.
