The Advantages of Wire Mesh

Wire mesh offers its users many advantages: both for residential and commercial markets. One boon is mesh's ability to be easily installed and worked with. This is a result of the materials durability. It can be put into place without fear or rips or tears. As a result of being galvanized, most wire mesh is corrosion resistant. This extends the life of the wire mesh.

Not only will the product last, but also it can be built with many different configurations. Depending on its purpose in an application requires different sized openings. Spaces in the wire mesh are evenly spaced out, but some stainless steel strainers require very fine spacing (as a means to collect unwanted particles).

Different materials are also available for these products. Stainless steel screen mesh is amongst the most durable types of wire mesh. This is why a good portion of industrial strainers are made of stainless steel. Steel is strong and it naturally resists corrosion. Steel prices have dropped over the last thirty years, and so stainless steel screen strains have become very affordable.

Perforated metal is different than wire mesh, and in some instances it can be used as an alternative. It is usually thick and more ridged then wire mesh. This type of metal is predominantly used in the industrial sector.

The boons of wire mesh should suggest why it is such a commonly used product for both home and residential: it is effective for slew of different applications. It is incredibly versatile and highly customizable.
