Mesh
Mesh means the number of openings of fractions of openings in either direction per lineal inch of wire fabric, measured from center to center of parallel wires, as illustrated.

To determine the mesh of a given weave, measure from the center of a wire to a point one inch distant and count the intervening openings.

Space
Space means the actual "clear opening" or distance between wires as illustrated.

How to Measure and Order Wire Cloth

In measuring and ordering wire cloth, specify the various meshes, space or diameter of the wire to insure proper delivery. The following table shows the variations in diameter of wire in 6 different makes of gauges and the two illustrations show the proper way to measure "mesh" and "space". For available meshes with wire diameter and percentage of open areas, see our product listings.
