Different Types of Weave Mesh
Different Types of Weave Mesh
September 02, 2016

Weave mesh is versatile and therefore applicable in many areas. It’s made by intertwining wires in different ways and of different sizes. Some of the available types include:

Plain weaves

This type of weave mesh involves wires that run underneath and over one another. They are mostly found in homes and are considered as the simplest type. To make them, you need to place parallel wires depending on the length of the cloth. You should then intertwine them at a 90-degree angle.

Dutch weaves

Here we have long wires that run parallel along the length and shorter ones running to the width. The former are referred to as warp and the latter shute wires. Warps are lesser than the shute in a given weave mesh.  The openings through the mesh are not straight in this type as they tend to slide diagonally while the shute wires touch one another. Some of the advantages of this type of wire cloth include durability and fine openings.

Twilled weave

They are similar to the Dutch weave wire mesh but their shute wires pass on top and below two warp wires for increased strength. It is best applicable in situations where heavier items are used and it has good filtration abilities.

Reverse twilled Dutch weave

Unlike in the Dutch weave mesh, the number of warp wires is greater than that of shute wires.  Shute wires are also thicker than warp and therefore the final item provides the strongest filter weave features possible.

Five heddle weave

Here, five warped wires are used and fill wires are passed over and below them in alternating ways. It allows the employment of heavier wire options and is therefore stronger compared to other types.
