Mild Steel Wire Mesh
0.96mm hole coarse mild steel wire mesh made from 0.63mm wire. This wire is fairly thick to be woven to form a mesh netting, as a consequence it is fairly tough and strong.
This mild steel woven wire mesh is crafted with precision, featuring a mesh count of 16 holes per linear inch. This specification results in 256 holes per square inch, creating a consistent and uniform pattern. The individual wires have a thickness of 0.63mm. However, where two wires intersect, this thickness increases slightly, enhancing the mesh’s durability.
With a hole size or aperture of 0.96mm, the mesh provides a defined square shape between wires. The open area percentage stands at 36%, indicating a relatively low open space, which is suitable for applications requiring more material coverage and less visibility. This low open area also provides added protection and security in certain uses.
To facilitate ease of handling and installation, the mesh is designed to be cut with tin snips. Crafted from mild steel, the mesh combines flexibility with strength. This steel wire mesh is ideal for diverse applications, from filtration and fencing to screening in various industries. Its durability and performance make it a practical choice for both industrial and domestic uses.
Specification Of This Mesh:
- Mesh Count = 16 holes per linear inch. The amount of holes measured against a straight line inch
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 256 holes per square inch. The amount of holes per linear inch squared
- Wire Thickness = 0.63mm. The thickness of each wire. The structure is thicker than this where two wires meet
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.96mm. This is the square hole size from wire to wire
- Open Area % = 36%. The amount of the mesh that is open. The higher this number the more open a mesh is.

FAQs For This Product
Can This Steel Mesh Be Cut Easily?
Yes, 16 mild steel woven wire mesh is designed for ease of handling and can be cut without much hassle. Tin snips are recommended for precise and clean cuts, ensuring optimal results for both installation and customisation. In addition to its flexibility, its sturdy construction allows for convenient adjustments to fit specific needs.
Is Steel Wire Mesh Flexible Or Rigid?
Steel wire mesh can be both flexible and rigid, depending on its specifications like wire thickness, mesh count, and the type of steel used. In the case of the mild steel woven wire mesh with a wire thickness of 0.63mm, it tends to be relatively flexible, allowing for some manipulation and bending. However, its flexibility is balanced with a degree of rigidity provided by the intersections of the woven wires, making it durable and robust for various applications.
Can Steel Mesh Resist Rust Or Corrosion?
Unlike galvanised or stainless steel, mild steel does not have inherent rust-resistant properties. However, to enhance its resistance to rust and corrosion, it can be treated with coatings or finishes, such as painting, powder coating, or other protective layers. Regular maintenance, such as periodic cleaning and applying anti-rust treatments, can also prolong its lifespan and appearance. If corrosion resistance is a primary concern, considering stainless steel or galvanised mesh might be a more suitable option.
