Details

Woven stainless steel mesh is used for a large number of applications, including filtration, ventilation, machine guards, pest proofing. This woven 3 Mesh has a 1.6mm thick wire, which makes it a reasonably strong and rigid material. We also offer a lighter-weight woven 3 Mesh with a 1.2mm wire. Although the mesh is manufactured on a roll, when flattened the mesh will be panel-like.

The mesh count refers to how many holes there are on a linear inch on the material i.e. if you place a ruler on the mesh, our 3 Mesh would have 3 holes per linear inch.

We can offer either standard grade 304 stainless steel, or the higher quality grade 316 stainless steel (sometimes called Marine Grade). Grade 316 stainless steel contains molybdenum, which is added to boost its resistance to corrosion and should be selected if the material is to be used in a salt water or coastal environment.

Please note that from time to time we may substitute grade 304 stainless steel for the higher quality grade 316 stainless steel (unless we are requested not to do so). Also, our heavier woven mesh may be supplied in either a crimped finish or a plain weave finish. If the finish is critical to your application, please call us on 01782 820 970 for confirmation on which finish is available. Samples are supplied from off-cuts of the woven mesh, and so may alternate between Grade 304 and Grade 316 stainless steel.

The material is priced per linear metre on the website.

Name* Product Question*

Hi, you kindly sent us some Stainless Mesh samples. The client is asking us what life span would be expected for a Marine Environment.

Please see below a link from the British Stainless Steel Association website which provides some information on lifespan:
http://www.bssa.org.uk/topics.php?article=51

As you can see, the estimate for corrosion to penetrate 1mm in a marine environment with grade 304 stainless steel would be approx. 145 years (as opposed to 260 years for grade 316). Although this seems like a long time, some pitting and staining of the grade 304 material may occur relatively quickly in a marine environment, which obviously has an impact from an aesthetic point of view.

Generally speaking, grade 316 stainless is the preferred option in marine environments. However, any stainless steel option will be preferable to a galvanized finish mild steel option.
