Welded mesh is used in many Industrial and Architectural applications such as Infill Panels, Guarding and Window Covering. Accurate Screen and Grating custom fabricates welded mesh for many unique purposes. An example would be 7 foot diameter industrial fan guards we produce for the Oil and Gas Industry. These fan guards prevent debris from entering the fan and damaging blades while allowing access for maintenance. The rigidity of welded mesh makes it the perfect material for this type of application.
Opening vs. Mesh:
When the word 'mesh' is used to describe the measurement of woven or welded wire it indicates the space measured between centre-to-centre of wire.
When the word 'opening' is used to describe the measurement of woven or welded wire it indicates the space measured between inside-to-inside of wire.
