How to chose the right weave type of Woven Wire Meshes such as:
- Plain Weave / Square Mesh
- Rectangular Mesh
- Plain Dutch Weave
- Dutch Twilled Weave
- Crimped Screen
|Plain Weave / Square Mesh|
The Plain Weave/Square Mesh is characterised by extremely exact mesh sizes. Weft wires are wound over and under the warp wires alternately in a constant pattern. The characteristics of this weave can be modified for special requirements.
Also called oblong/broad. The most common mesh ratio is 1:3. If the numbers are reversed the mesh is known as broad mesh. This mesh is used for vibrating sieving screens or other architectural applications.
|Plain Dutch Weave|
The warp wires in this weave type are always stronger than the weft wires. The so-called “Zero-Mesh” is created by positioning the weft wires as closely as possible together. The specific benefits are good flow rate and even openings.
| Dutch Twilled Weave|
This process involves forcing the weft wires together during weaving. This kind of mesh has double the number of weft wires compared with the plain Dutch weave, providing a particularly smooth surface for ultra fine filtration applications.
Crimped Wires are used in both directions and combined to create a robust wire screen with a stable form and surface. Suitable as protective screens for fences, gates and partitions for rack shelving systems.
|Welded Mesh / Welded Screen|
Similar to reinforced meshes, the horizontal wires (roll width) are secured to the vertical wires (roll length) by spot welding. These constant connection points give the screen a high level of stability.
