Weld mesh is manufactured from metal wires welded using an electronically controlled electric process employing the principle of fusion combined with pressure at their intersections. This gives a homogeneous section without any loss of strength or area. By using different diameter wires, it can be made into light or heavy gauge product. Because it is welded it can be cut into any shape. It cannot separate or fray and does not require tensioning in order to pull it into shape. It can be supplied in framed panels made to customer’s requirements. Its large open area gives good visibility when used as screening or for guards.
General Applications of Welded Mesh
- For Safety
Welded mesh provides safety wherever moving machinery is involved. As machine guards or fixed safety barriers, welded mesh provides visibility together with all the protection the Health & Safety Acts require.
- For Storage
For storage Potter & Soar welded mesh makes strong pallet sides, shelves for racking, bins, scrap containers, baskets and so on.
- For Building
Guarding and protecting are two important areas in the building trades where mesh is invaluable. Safety guards on scaffolding, tree guards, window guards, and motorway bridge parapet guards are just a few examples. Protection of people and property is becoming more and more important in days of increasing vandalism.
- For Storage
The use of stainless steel welded mesh for many industrial applications is rapidly increasing where its strength, hygienic and rustproof qualities have proved to be of benefit. More and more users are recognizing that the long term advantages of stainless steel far outweigh the higher initial cost.
- Quality finish
- Tensile strength
