Plain Weave Mesh Pattern

In a plain weave pattern, each weft wire passes alternately over and under the warp wire and vice versa. It is the most widely available pattern and typically incorporates wire of the same diameter in both directions.

Available as standard specifications from 11mm to 50 micron and also from bespoke manufacture, plain weaves are considered to be the most stable mesh form and are used in many applications throughout manufacturing industry.
