Hexagonal Wire Mesh as Facing for Insulation Blanket

In conditions of heat, cold or vibration involved, such as boiler tank, pipelines, vessel, reactors, building architecture and other places, mineral fiber and rock wool blanket shall be applied over their surfaces. The blankets shall be secured with metal mesh, tie-wires and metal stitching in order to ensure the blanket will remain in its specific position. With a variety of options of metal mesh mechanically applied to one or both machine surfaces, hexagonal shaped woven netting is provided here.

Two types of hexagonal shaped woven netting are mainly supplied: galvanized wire mesh and stainless steel wire mesh. Both are manufactured into 1 in. (25 mm) sized mesh by No. 22 to 28 gauge wire. We also provide stitching and tie wires of specific specification used for securement with wire mesh facing.
