Quality Counts...

Craftsmanship Makes A Difference

It’s the little things, and paying attention to the details, that makes the difference –

  • Wire cloth is not sheet metal! It is not solid. It is made of individual wires running in different directions with spaces between them. Wire Cloth behaves like cloth – it moves, wrinkles, and stretches – it’s not rigid.
  • Different applications require different approaches – in some a tack welded seam will work while others require a continuous weld.
  • When using a two ply construction, is the coarse mesh seam smooth and burr free? If not, it could cause the fine mesh to fail prematurely.
  • Do the seams line up?
  • Are the seams straight?
  • Is the wire cloth taut or is it loose and wrinkled?
  • Is the construction adequately supported?

Experience helps us better understand your needs. Newark Wire Cloth’s craftsmen make the job right the first time. Let us put our 90 plus years of wire cloth knowledge to work for you!
