Stainless Woven Mesh Terminology

Mesh – The number of openings per lineal inch.

SWG – Standard wire gauge

Aperture- The distance between two adjacent wires

Diameter- The thickness of the wire before weaving

Pitch- The distance between the middle point of two adjacent wires or the sum of the aperture width and the wire diameter.

% Open Area- The ratio of the area of the aperture to the area of the mesh expressed in percentage terms

Weft- All wires running across the cloth as woven

Stainless Woven Mesh Formulas


Calculating the aperture

  1. Count of a convenient number of apertures (N)
  2. Measure the length covered by the N apertures (L)
  3. Measure the wire diameter (D)
  4. The average aperture (A)


Working example of calculating the aperture of 6/20 woven wire mesh

  1. Number of apertures counted N = 6
  2. Length covered by apertures centre to centre L = 25.4mm
  3. Diameter of wire D = 0.9mm
  4. Aperture


The woven wire is identified as 3.33mm aperture / 0.9mm diameter


Mesh Count

Percentage Open Area

The mesh has a 62% open area


Micron Conversion


Micron (micrometer) is a unit of measure, in which usually only fine mesh under 1mm is referred to. A micron us a thousandth of a millimetre.

In this example 325/48.5, 0.043mm aperture, 0.035mm diameter is used.



Plain Weave


The most common and simplest weaves.Each warp wire (wire running parallel to the length of the cloth) passes alternatively over and under the wires running transversly through the cloth at 90 degree angles.
Intercrimp Weave


Has extra crimps in warp and weft wires between intersections.

Lock Crimp Weave


Is produced with pre-crimped wire. Lock crimp weave is stabilised by a notch or bump at the wire intersections.

 Twill Weave


Is Produced by passing each fill wire alternatively over and under two warp wires.

We recently renovated a rural property and installed Stainless Steel Bushfire Mesh. The SSWM team were a pleasure to deal with helpful and efficient. We now have a fantastic product installed and I would have no hesitations in recommending SSWM.
