Wire Cloth / Wire Mesh

Square / Plain Weave

Details

Square / Plain weave has its origins in braiding. With this weave, the material is interwoven. Each warp wire and each shute wire pass over one and under the next adjacent wire. Wires are crimped in the weaving operation. There are a number of ways of doing this, making the family of plain weaves extremely  diverse with respect to appearance and structure.

Square Plain Mesh

Wire cloth with mesh count the same in both directions. Plain Square Mesh is the most common weave with same number and diameter of warp and shute wires woven in a simple over and under pattern. Creates maximum weaving stability and same mesh count in both directions.

DETAILS

Mesh Count:
¾# to 500#

Open Area (Porosity):
11.7% - 87.8%

Square Twilled Mesh

This cloth is woven with mesh counts equal in both directions, the same as in plain square mesh. However, in a square twilled weave, each warp wire and each shute wire pass successively over two and under the next adjacent pair of wires. With the twilled weave pattern, the warp wires are not as heavily deformed and physically stressed as in the case of plain weave. The strength of this design is its suitability for applications that are subject to high levels of mechanical stress.

Mesh Count:
270# to 500#

Open Area (Porosity):
25% - 32.1%
