Let’s answer the most important question here which is, “What’s a wire mesh?”
Industrial wire mesh (also referred to as wire cloth) is a woven metal fabric manufactured in varying degrees of thickness, weight, and aperture.
How’s the wire mesh made?
Metal wires are woven to a precise specification on industrial weaving looms, leaving either square or rectangular gaps between the wires. Locker wire mesh is created by weaving metal on automated rapier-style looms to precisely regulate the number of wires that make up the finished mesh. This tightly controlled approach ensures continuity in both the size of the opening and the thickness of the mesh.
What do people do to make use of a wire mesh?
A wide range of parameters can be obtained by adjusting wire thickness, metal, and aperture. Specifications vary from the finest sheer gauze fabric to heavy-duty rigid screens, and this flexibility ensures that wire mesh can be used for a wide range of applications.
Like many domestic applications, Locker woven wire is widely used for a myriad of industrial filtration, sieving, shielding, sifting, filtering, sorting, and separation processes.
Woven mesh is a highly versatile and malleable material. It can be shaped to match the precise requirements and edged to fit any structure. It is durable and works well under high temperatures and pressures. It is commonly used in the oil and gas industry, plus pharmaceuticals, recycling, automotive, and electronics, to name just a few.

Locker woven metal mesh can be supplied in a range of ways:
- On the roll
- ‘As you cut’ from the roll
- Pre-cut to size in bits, disks, or strips
- Shaped in shapes, welded, edged, or finished to design.
Wire mesh may be used for a number of purposes, both inside and outside the home. The use of wire mesh has been extended to window screens, screen doors, walls, room dividers, fences, and even plumbing.
Here are three styles of wire mesh and how you can use it around the house or barn:
- Woven Wire Mesh: There are a number of tiny openings within the woven wire mesh, referred to as wire cloth. Usually, this form of wire mesh is used for windows and doors. The wire cloth is designed to allow air to flow through the home while keeping bugs and other insects out. It is usually sealed in a metal frame with a rubber liner.
- Welded wire mesh: welded wire mesh is suitable for heavy-duty work around the house that needs to be reinforced, such as fencing or building a barrier to added protection. The wires in this mesh have been welded together, hence the name, to create a stronger, stronger connection.
- Knit Wire Mesh: Knit wire mesh can be used to protect pig pens, chicken coops, and even in some garden areas and backyards. The purpose of knitted wire mesh was to contain the livestock and prevent them from leaving. However, due to its unusual nature, it can also be used to build chain link fences. Knit wire mesh can be used to make the most basic decoration methods around the home. You can also use knit mesh to make a special welcome mat out of your front or back door.
