Common Weaving Terms



MESH COUNT.
In wire cloth this is the number of openings per lineal inch measured from centre to centre of the wire. The counting of fine wire cloth is aided by using a small portion of the mesh, ½” or ¼” is magnified. By counting the meshes in the opening of the counting glass and multiplying by two or four as the case may be the meshes per inch is determined. Where the mesh is specified in inches or fractional parts of an inch or in millimetres or as a micron rating, these measurements are understood to be the clear opening or aperture between the wires.



WARP.
The warp wires run lengthways in a roll of mesh.



WEFT.
The weft wires run widthways and form the selvedge.



SELVEDGE.
The selvedge is the finished edges of a roll.



WEAVE.
In addition to square mesh plain and twill woven cloths, we can supply Hollander or ‘Dutch’ weave cloth which has great strength and is suitable for pressure filtration.



WIDTH.
The standard widths for wire cloth are 1mtr and 1.22mtrs. We do additionally stock wider widths of certain specifications, generally 1.27mtrs and 1.53mtrs wide. Smaller widths to the very narrowest can be produced on our modern and fast slitting machines.



LENGTH.
A standard roll is approx. 30mtrs long. We can supply any part length as may be required to meet your exact needs, or further process the mesh into squares, rectangles,circles, discs or other shapes for you.



NOTE
The weights per square metre in the tables are based on the weight of Stainless Steel.
