Hardware Wire Cloth


Hardware wire cloth mesh is wire mesh that consists of either woven or welded wires in a square or rectangular grid. It is available in galvanized steel, stainless steel and bare steel, and it is typically used for outdoor applications. The mesh openings range from 1/8 inch x 1/8 inch to 2 inch x 2 inch for the square openings and 1/2 inch x 1 inch to 2 inch x 4 inch for the rectangular openings. Hardware wire cloth mesh is available in rolls ranging from 24 inches to 72 inches wide and 100 feet long and can be cut to fit your specifications.

We offer hardware wire cloth mesh fabrication services, including cutting into discs, fabricating into pack filters, wire cloth filter strainers, filter tubes, filter cylinders and more.

Hardware Cloth vs. Chicken Wire
Hardware cloth is a superior product when compared to traditional chicken wire. The difference lies in the protection this material offers. While chicken wire confines chickens and other farm animals to their specific areas, the large openings and flexible qualities of chicken wire inherently allow for persevering predators to eventually gain access. Hardware cloth, on the other hand, keeps natural predators out. The small openings and sturdy design features block outside animals from intruding. Simply put, investing in hardware cloth prevents potential heartache and financial losses.

Hardware cloth is used in all kinds of filters. The automobile, construction, chemical, rubber, plastic, and food and beverage industries all utilize this versatile hardware cloth.
