Wire mesh for industry, architecture & process belts

The production of our wire mesh takes place on special wire weaving looms. Generally, all metals that can be worked to form a weavable wire are suitable for wire mesh production. Industrial mesh and mesh for process belts have a wire diameter of 12 µm to 6 mm, whereas for architectural mesh the spectrum ranges from 0.5 mm to 7 mm.

Weaves consisting of wire cables, wire bundles, or preformed wires are also known as wire mesh. Other designations for wire mesh are sieving cloth or – more generally – sieve, even if the field of application of wire mesh goes far beyond separation technology – such as when used as a filtration net in a filter system.

Depending on the requirements, wire meshes are produced in various weave types. These range from the familiar square mesh in plain weave through to complex multi-ply mesh designs. As the world’s leading manufacturer of wire meshes, we are able to produce sophisticated mesh for highly-specialized processes and applications.

In architectural applications, a distinction is usually made between three wire mesh types:

  • Cable mesh: metal mesh with a warp made from a wire cable – for the production of large-surface structures (e.g. façade cladding) up to 8 m wide.
  • PC mesh or rigid mesh: the use of monofilament wire instead of a wire cable creates panel-like wire grates that are particularly well suited for applications such as suspended ceilings or balustrades.
  • Spiral mesh: consisting of metal tape spirals that are connected with rods, this wire mesh has considerable advantages in three-dimensional shaping.
