Wire Mesh Screen with openings of less than 1/4″ (designated by the number of wires per lineal inch) are sometimes called “Mesh Cloth.” Open area percent and weight are important considerations for many wire cloth uses so the tables below contain the open area percent and weight for some common square opening mesh cloth weaves listed by mesh size and wire diameter.  If you can’t find the mesh you’re looking for here — we weave wire cloth, so many other specs can be woven per request! –  or want the weight of wire screen woven from another metal, please try our wire cloth calculators.
