Wire mesh is one of the most versatile specialty metal products that can be used effectively in countless applications globally.
Civil Engineering Applications
Woven wire mesh is often utilized in civil engineering applications, such as bridge construction. The use of wire mesh for bridges was chosen mainly for safety reasons. The mesh offers safe fall protection for people while protecting the railways below from falling debris. (1) Direct Metals has provided welded wire mesh for bridges, including the 25th Avenue Bridge in Melrose Park, IL.
Warehouses, Distribution Centers, and Industrial Facilities
The typical size of woven wire mesh is ideal for simple wire partition applications such as tool cribs, inventory control cages, and protected storage cages used in warehouses, distribution centers, and industrial facilities. (1)
Fishing and Marine Applications
Many organizations in the fishing and marine industry enjoy using our PVC wire mesh due to its corrosion resistant properties that hold up to the harsh saltwater environments.
