Applications of Woven Wire Mesh Panels
Woven wire mesh panels are used in a variety of industrial and commercial applications. They are commonly used as security fencing, infill panels, and in the manufacturing of products such as filters, racks, shelving, and more.
Furthermore, woven wire mesh panels are an effective way to secure a perimeter, as they are difficult to climb and cut through. They can be used in high-security areas such as prisons and military installations or lower-security applications such as residential fencing.
In this article, we will discuss in detail the different industrial and commercial applications of woven wire mesh panels.
Here is an overview of the most common uses of woven wire mesh panels.
Woven Wire Mesh Bridge Decking
Bridge decking is the material that forms the surface of a bridge and is a critical steel structural solution. It is usually made from concrete, but in many commercial and industrial properties, it is often made from steel or timber.
Woven wire mesh is often used as bridge decking because it is strong, durable, and versatile. Furthermore, it is not susceptible to corrosion, which makes it ideal for use in bridges that span saltwater or other corrosive environments – including many chemicals.
For example, it is most commonly used by the Army Corps of Engineers and state and local DOTs in the US.
Woven wire mesh panels can also be used as infill panels, supporting your property’s (or project’s) primary structure(s). They are commonly used in the construction of fences, gates, partitions, and other security barriers. When used as an infill panel, they provide a high degree of security while still allowing for visibility.
For example, they are often used in the construction of prison fences, as well as commercial and industrial security fences.
Woven wire mesh panels are also used in the manufacturing of products such as filters, racks, and shelving. They are often used as a replacement for metal in the manufacturing process, as they are lightweight and easier to work with.
The most common manufacturing applications for woven wire mesh panels are in the production of air filters, oil filters, and water filters. They are also used in the construction of metal racks and shelving.
Woven wire mesh panels are also used in security screening. They are effective at detecting metal objects, such as weapons or bombs. They also screen baggage and packages at airports and other security checkpoints. The panels can not only help against intruders but can also be used for animal and insect screening.
Common examples include machine guards, window guards, pallet racking protection, and more. The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) uses woven wire mesh panels in their baggage and package screening process.
Other Applications of Woven Wire Mesh Panels
Woven wire mesh panels have various applications. They can be used as rodent-proofing in food processing facilities or as bird netting to keep birds away from crops. They can also be used in the construction of greenhouses and other structures.
These woven wire mesh panels have also been used extensively for sieving. They are commonly used to sift flour, powdered sugar, and other dry ingredients. They are also used to screen dirt, sand, and other debris from construction sites.
You will also find that woven wire mesh panels are used to make pet cages. They are strong and durable, making them ideal for use in pet enclosures. They are also easy to clean, which is important for pet owners.
