Woven Wire Mesh

wire-cloth-woven-and crimped-protecting a fan Woven Wire Mesh

Woven wire cloth, also known as woven wire mesh, is woven on looms, a process that is similar to the one used to weave clothing. The mesh can consist of various crimping patterns for the interlocking segments. This interlocking method, which entails the precise arrangement of the wires over and under one another prior to crimping them into place, creates a product that’s strong and reliable. The high-precision manufacturing process makes woven wire cloth more labor-intensive to produce therefore it is typically the more expensive than welded wire mesh.

Common Applications for Woven Wire Mesh

The remarkable strength and versatility of woven wire mesh make it an excellent choice for numerous applications, including:

  • Sifting and sizing
  • Architectural applications when aesthetics are important
  • Infill panels that can be used for pedestrian partitions
  • Filtration and separation
  • Glare control
  • RFI and EMI shielding
  • Ventilation fan screens
  • Handrails and safety guards
  • Pest control and livestock cages
  • Process screens and centrifuge screens
  • Air and water filters
  • Dewatering, solids/liquid control
  • Waste treatment
  • Filters and strainers for air, oil, fuel and hydraulic systems
  • Fuel cells and mud screens
  • Separator screens and cathode screens
  • Catalyst support grids made from bar grating with wire mesh overlay

  • Lock crimp: Lock crimp is comprised of pre-crimped wire featuring the formation of knuckles or bumps over intersecting sets of wires. This locks the mesh in place to create an extremely rigid product.
  • Double crimp: Double crimp wire mesh cloth exhibits a pattern of warp wires passing over and under fill wires.
  • Intercrimp: Commonly used for screens and architectural applications, intercrimp woven wire mesh provides superior strength and stability, while offering a rigid mesh solution.
  • Flat top: As the name implies, the flat top crimp style features a smooth top plane that facilitates the flow of materials.

  • Plain/Double: This standard woven wire cloth weave type produces square openings where the warp wire alternately passes over and under the fill wire at right angles.
  • Twill Square: Typically used for applications that require managing heavier loads and finer filtration, twill square woven wire mesh exhibits a distinctive parallel diagonal pattern.
  • Twill Dutch: Twill Dutch is known for its superior strength, which is achieved by packing a high volume of wire in targeted areas of the weave. This woven wire cloth style can also filter particles as small as two microns.
  • Reverse Plain Dutch: This woven wire weave style features a large warp wire and smaller shute wire count that the Plain or Twill Dutch styles.
  • Plain Dutch: The Plain Dutch style features diagonally slanted openings that are difficult to see, but produces a strong, compact wire mesh that works well for filtering cloth applications.

Woven Wire Cloth Materials

The following are the most common types of woven wire cloth materials:

Stainless steel wire mesh, specifically Type 304 stainless steel, is the most popular material for producing woven wire cloth. Also known as 18-8 because of its 18 percent chromium and eight percent nickel components, 304 is a basic stainless alloy that offers a combination of strength, corrosion resistance and affordability. Type 304 stainless steel is normally the best option when manufacturing grilles, vents or filters used for the general screening of liquids, powders, abrasives and solids.
