Insects, Bees & Birds

Our standard range of wire mesh includes specifications suited for a variety of applications, such as:


Fly and Insect Screening:

Mesh supplied in rolls or panels, standard in Stainless Steel for durability – supplied to any cut width for use as a soffit mesh:

1.35mm aperture x 0.236mm diameter, 72% free area

1.18mm aperture x 0.229mm diameter, 70% free area

These meshes are strong but lightweight and easy to handle and cut – heavier meshes can be provided for use as rodent barriers, example:

All these specifications will keep out the unwanted but allow free passage of air and light.
