Our black PVC coated fiberglass insect mesh is perfect for keeping out flies and other insects. The fiberglass insect mesh is a strong, cloth-like material. The 7.5cm to 30cm wide rolls are ideal for use on soffits, or behind cladding.
The black PVC coating not only makes the material soft and easy to handle, it also helps the mesh to blend in with the background. Therefore, this product is the ideal option for discreet insect protection.
All measurements +/- 5%. If you require a micrometer reading of the wire thickness then please call us on 01782 820 970.
I am looking for a mesh that will bend into shoes easily. What would you recommend....the fiberglass mesh looks interesting
Thank you for your enquiry.
The black fiberglass mesh insect mesh is quite a floppy product and so unless it is being attached to a structure I wouldn’t have thought that this would keep its shape (as it is not rigid).
Given that the application is a little outside of our field of expertise it is difficult to answer your question with any certainty. Having said that, customers in the past have used our 13mm hole chicken wire netting for creating sculptures.
If used as a leaf guard on gutters, fastened with cable ties, would the rain go through your PVC coated fibreglass soffit mesh or would surface tension make it sit on top? Other suggestions?
Thank-you for the e-mail.
The fiberglass soffit mesh has an open area of around 72%, and so will allow water to pass through it. However, whether or not some water will still sit on top when it rains will depend on the volume of water, speed of flow etc. and so this is a little outside of our field of knowledge. Another issue with using fiberglass is that the material is cloth-like i.e. it doesn’t have any rigidity to it. Therefore, you will most likely find that the mesh will flop to the bottom of the gutter.
As an alternative, customers have used a welded wire mesh in the past to make gutter guards (typically a 13mm x 13mm 19 gauge welded mesh). The best option to avoid rusting would be to use stainless steel. The 13mm x 13mm 19g welded mesh has more structure, and will allow the water to run through.
Thank you for your prompt and perfect answer!
Dear Mesh Direct
Thank you for your email.
The mesh arrived this morning and is just what we need thank you.
Good afternoon, I have just received an order of mesh placed with you yesterday. The mesh was very securely packaged and from you to me in under a day is impressive. I would particularly commend Katy who took the order and arranged postage to my address to which you would not normally deliver. Another member of staff sent me a data sheet to show to Building Standards very promptly. Am very pleased.
