Stainless steel is the optimum solution for your woven mesh needs. By selecting stainless steel you will utilise its numerous benefits including:
Long term performance
Life cycle costing
Low environmental impact
Stainless Steel Woven Wire Mesh is manufactured by weaving longitudinal and transverse wires together. Commercial / Industrial grade mesh also known as wire cloth and gauze is extensively used for:
- Industry for filtration, screening / sieving and food pressing/ drying
- Industry for Hollander Mesh & Bolting Cloth
- Architecture for function and appearance both internally and externally
- Bushfire Mesh part of your solution to bushfire protection
- Window & Door Mesh part of your solution for stopping insects, intruders & embers

Stainless Steel Woven Mesh - More Information
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
Warp– All wires running lengthwise of the cloth as woven
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
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
The woven wire is identified as 3.33mm aperture / 0.9mm diameter
If the aperture and the diameter are known the mesh count can be determined
Percentage Open Area
The mesh has a 62% open area
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.
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.
Is Produced by passing each fill wire alternatively over and under two warp wires.
