Weaving Around: 6 Types of Wire Mesh Weaves

Woven wire mesh is a kind of wire mesh that is woven together just like cloth. This form of wire mesh usually has a tighter weave than welded wire mesh and it also retains a higher level of flexibility. Depending on the woven wire mesh weave pattern, wire mesh can be lighter or heavier than welded mesh. Typically, there are about six different patterns used in woven meshes. These patterns have their own strengths and specific applications where they are best suited. Plain weave: The plain weave is the simplest... Read More

Designing with Wire Cloth

There are a variety of different ways to use a wire cloth. Common industrial uses are for sorting machinery or draining pulp; common residential uses are ones such as fireplace guards or even kitchen cabinets. But there is one hidden feature when using wire cloth the ability to design. Typically, wire cloth is commonly seen as some wires running a few different directions and it is not the most striking design, but the potential for creating something with the wires is astounding. Large sculptures, the outsides of skyscrapers, and more... Read More

5 Unique Uses for Wire Cloth

Wire cloth is a cool hybrid between fabric and wire. The cloth is actually not a cloth at all, because it is made entirely from metal wires or tiny threads. The smaller the strands of wires used to weave the cloth, the more flowing and flexible the finished product will be. Wire cloth is woven together just like real cloth, and wire looms look very similar to cloth looms. Wire cloth is often the material of choice for more delicate industrial applications, such as filtering or straining, but there are... Read More

businessIndustry Information

Wire Cloth

The term “wire cloth” refers to metal wires that are weaved in an interlocking pattern with evenly spaced and uniform openings. Also known as screen cloth or wire mesh, wire cloth is made in rolls on a loom. The purposes of this material most often include structuring, protecting, filtering and straining, and some of the industries in which it may serve one or more of these purposes include: food and beverage processing, fencing and border creation, architecture, construction, appliance manufacturing and material handling. Within these industries, wire cloth serves a variety of applications, which include but are not limited to: tea strainers and food strainers, chicken wire and other fencing for livestock, humane animal traps, mosquito netting and wire window screens that prevent the entrance of other insects and debris, vandal screens, RF (radio frequency) radiation shields in microwaves, park bench production and waste baskets. In addition, a type of wire cloth called hardware cloth is used in a variety of industrial, commercial and residential applications. These include: draining pulp or other mixtures, determining the particle sizes of a material, use with sifting and sorting machinery, use as window screens in buildings and HVAC installations and decorative use as fireplace guards or in kitchen cabinetry.

Wire cloth can be manufactured from virtually any metal or metal alloy that can be draw into a wire, most frequently including aluminum, copper, magnetic alloys, nickel, steel and stainless steel. In addition, if and when an application calls for it, manufacturers will galvanize the metal material they use. This is because galvanized wire mesh is better protected from the elements than ungalvanized wire mesh. Using whatever metal material wires they have chosen, manufacturers complete the wire cloth fabrication process by weaving these wires into patterns that are known as weave types. The three weave types that are most often chosen for this are: plain woven, twill woven and Dutch woven. The plain woven weave type is very simple and traditional; its wires are woven together using a traditional over/under technique at 90 degree angles. The twill woven weave type, on the other hand, is more complex. It requires that wires running lengthwise and wires running crosswise go over and under one another in pairs of two. Finally, the Dutch woven weave type, not to be confused with the Dutch plain woven type, involves crisscrossing wires that have different weights. Typically, the wires that run lengthwise are heavier than the wires that run crosswise. Other than this, the Dutch woven weave type is the same as the plain woven weave type in that they both use an over/under pattern.

Wire cloth weave type, along with other factors such as mesh count (the open area between wires), determine the application for which a piece of wire cloth will be used. Note that, the larger mesh size, the smaller the opening in between the weave of the crosswise wire. Sometimes, mesh count can be used to determine the size of material particles, because the size of the particles can be judged against the size of the wire cloth openings. In the same way that mesh count and weave type help determine the application for a piece of wire cloth, the way in which a piece of wire cloth is made is largely determined by its intended usage and the specifics of the requirements of strength and durability that go along with that intended usage. For example, in the food service industry, a wire cloth product must be made of a sterile material, or a material that is easily cleaned. In addition, all applications require that the wire cloth be made of material(s) that allow it to withstand those elements with which it will come in contact. Elements such as these may include: extremely high temperatures, extremely low temperatures, abrasive or chemical substances and moisture and other corrosion-causing elements.

Find out more about how wire cloth can benefit your application by reaching out to an experienced wire cloth manufacturer today. A good manufacturer will not only offer wire cloth in different weave types, materials and mesh counts, but also different shapes. Different shapes are particularly useful for use with application in which the cloth must allow goods to be seen while preventing unauthorized access to them. Common shapes for applications like these include simple squares, simple rectangles and hexagons (chicken wire). Some of the best manufacturers you can find are listed on this page. To find out more out about these manufacturers, browse their respective websites and reach out to one or more of them today.
