    Materials Available
    Wire Cloth and Wire Mesh is commonly available in the following materials:

    CARBON STEEL Wire Mesh
    Plain low carbon steel typically ranging from C1006 to C1012 alloy, drawn from rod. Combines strength and weldability with economy.

    GALVANIZED BEFORE WOVEN
    Carbon steel coated with light layer of zinc during the manufacturing, includes corrosion resistance for most indoor applications.

    GALVANIZED AFTER WOVEN
    Carbon steel coated with a heavy layer of zinc after the manufacture of the mesh. Excellent for long term corrosion protection.

    HIGH CARBON STEEL Wire Mesh
    Abrasion resistant steel used for applications facing significant wear such as media filtering or sorting. Abrasion resistant steel can be difficult to weld, consider mechanical fastening to supporting structure.

    STAINLESS STEEL Wire Mesh
    Commonly manufactured in 300 series alloys. Type 304 is most popular, but also available in types 309, 310, 316, 321 & 347. Series 400 alloys are also available on special order.

    ALUMINUM Wire Mesh
    Lightweight and mildly resistant to corrosion, aluminum alloys are readily available. Alloy 1350 is most common and can be easily welded and anodized. Also available are alloys 5056 and 6061.

    NICKEL BASED ALLOYS Wire Mesh
    Inconel 600, Monel 400, Nichrome V and Hastalloy C276 offer specific characteristics desirable in specialized environments.

    SPECIALTY ALLOYS Wire Mesh
    Copper based alloys, bronze, brass and titanium are also available for all woven products. Contact our sales engineers for assistance in selecting the proper specialty alloy for your application.

  • Perforated Metal

    The perfect meshing of product and service regarding Perforated Metal. Functional and attractive, perforated metal is seen virtually everywhere in today's world: as decorative architectural panels, light diffusers, air diffusers, and more. Perforated metal panels and plates have varied uses from screening to ventilation. The economical process of making lightweight perforated metal allows Petro-Wire and Steel to custom design architectural panels and stainless steel plates with a variety of holes, shapes and designs. Depending on the size and shape of the perforated openings and the gauge, punched metal can become many things. From a behind-the-scenes workhorse used to screen and filter a variety of materials, to a visually appealing light diffuser or air diffuser for architectural applications, perforated sheet metal is the solution that can even perform artistically as a display. Perforated decorative metal is especially great for making architectural panels that give buildings an attractive design touch.

  • Expanded Metal

    Expanded Metal: The perfect meshing of product and service.

    It's hard to beat expanded metal because of its versatility and economy. Formed by slitting and stretching a single sheet of metal, expanded metal is recognized by the raised diamond pattern that results during the process. Expanded metals have superior ventilation properties and the diamond pattern makes expanded metal mesh ideal for projects that need to be visually appealing.

    For applications where the level of flatness is important, you can flatten the sheets by passing them through a cold, roll-reducing mill. Styles of expanded metals vary by type of material, gauge and size of diamond. Lightweight, strong and penetrable, flattened expanded metal is ideal for a wide variety of applications from aesthetically pleasing light diffusion to industrial flooring projects such as catwalks. It can be used for stairs, vents and gratings, railings, enclosures, fencing, grills, security partitions and more.

  • Bar Grating

    Universally used in industrial plants and commercial buildings, welded steel or welded stainless steel bar grating are the most popular of all the grating types. Walkways, stair treads, platforms, safety barriers, drainage covers and ventilation grates are just a few of the common applications that benefit from its strength, cost efficient production and ease of installation. Contact us about stainless steel grating that can be used for vessel support grids.

    Also popular is aluminum grating because it is light weight, yet strong under pressure. Aluminum bar grating is rust-resistant, making them the perfect metal bar grate for corrosive environments. Similar to aluminum, fiberglass bar grating also works well in corrosive settings and has the benefits of being non-conductive and fire retardant.

    Wire Cloth
  • Fiberglass Grating

    Specified mostly for its high resistance to corrosive environments, fiberglass grating has an impressive list of additional benefits. Whether you choose Pultrusion or Open Molding, you can rest assured your grating is fire retardant, non-conductive, light weight, low maintenance and architecturally attractive.

    Even though molded fiberglass grating is widely used and performs well for many applications with equal strength in both directions, pultruded fiberglass grating is generally the best solution. Similar in appearance to metal bar grating, high quality pultruded grating is well designed to deliver important benefits. It is stronger, lighter, equally corrosion resistant, and in most cases, less costly than molded grating. Additionally, pultruded grating comes in larger panels and can be built to custom panel sizes. Molded fiberglass is made with square or rectangular grid patterns of limited size.
