Advantages of Wire Mesh

Steel wire mesh is an extremely versatile material that gives itself to fabrication into an almost limitless range of applications. Not surprisingly, humankind has borrowed this perfect form from the natural world.

MS Guardio sells products made from two kinds of wire mesh. Most of our standard every day radiator guards, light guards and so on are made from steel welded mesh, a light, strong material that is perfect for these applications. We also sell products made from heavier duty hand-woven steel wire mesh for applications as diverse as machine guards and church window guards.

Guards and grilles made from wire mesh are

  • ž Flexible yet strong
  • ž Lightweight
  • ž Do not interfere with heat circulation or light emission
  • ž Can be coated in a range of finishes and colours for different applications, for indoor and outdoor use

For more information please see our article on materials and coatings.
