Hardware cloth is woven or welded galvanized steel wire fabric, commercially known as hardware cloth.
Hardware cloth is made from cold-drawn steel wires which have been fabricated into fabric (or so-called “mesh”), formed by the process of weaving or electrical welding, and subsequently galvanized (zinc coated) by the hot-dip process. The finished material consists essentially of a series of longitudinal (warp) and transverse (filler) wires arranged substantially at right angles to each other.
It is customarily used for window and screen door guards, tree guards, industrial machine guards, sand screens, and grain bins. It serves as a protective screen against rodents and is used for many other home, farm, and industrial purposes.
The mesh size can be 1/8”, 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4”, 1” and 1x1/2”
