Common applications for woven metal mesh

02/02/2021 0 Comments news
Woven metal mesh has long been recognized as one of the most robust and most durable products on the market. This highly portable solution secures and protects what’s important to you, including those places where ventilation, vision and light are required. Variables in weaving techniques, wire diameter, opening size and types of metal result in more configuration choices and more uses. Let’s take a look at the typical applications of woven metal mesh below.  

Industrial Safety and security

  Flame-retardant metal mesh minimizes security and safety concerns from the top to the bottom of your building. Woven metal mesh window guards and storage cages are a first-line defense in protecting valuable and hard to replace assets.   The versatile metal mesh also guards against accidents — blocking sparks from machinery, creating a barrier between employees and automated equipment, and preventing falling items from pallet racking.  

Other industrial and commercial uses include:

  • Partition walls
  • Lockers
  • Cladding
  • Sieving
  • Separation and filtration
  • Handrails
  • Transport cages
  • Evidence cages

Agricultural uses

  Woven metal mesh is a go-to favorite for most farms, large and small. Easy to clean and maintain, its adaptive qualities are suited for:  
  • Crop protection
  • Compost bins
  • Soil and grain sifting
  • Property line demarcation
  • Livestock barriers
  • Greenhouse use
  • Pest control
  • Filtration and irrigation
  • Fencing

Architecture and interior design

  While there’s no denying woven mesh’s ability to protect and secure, it’s being used more frequently by architects, interior designers, and even artists for its ornamental qualities. Woven metal mesh is instrumental in both internal and external projects. It’s flexible, and the variety of patterns, materials, and sizes offer unlimited possibilities for features such as:  
  • Decorative walkways
  • Screening
  • Balustrades
  • Ceiling panels
  • Water fountains
  • Space dividers
  • Wallcoverings
  • Fireplace and security screens
  • Ventilation fan screens
  • Shelving and stands
  • Sculptures
  Woven metal mesh offers many benefits. The securely woven metal is durable and allows for ventilation and circulation of air-conditioning and heating. Your needs and imagination only limit the choices of configuration for this seemingly simple material. It’s easy to clean and portable solutions that are flexible and can be used either indoors or outdoors. Building contractors, architects, and those working in agriculture and other sectors continue to find new ways of using woven metal mesh for all types of projects.   Turn to the experts at Cal-Wire for all your quality woven wire mesh needs.
