Wire mesh exhibits a high degree of stability and flexibility and is easy to bend and cut.
It is suitable for a wide range of applications:
Wire mesh is produced by twisting or welding wires. See below for more information on “crimp screens” and “welded screens”.
In Austria, crimp screens are also known as “crimp grids”. Crimp screens are produced by means of twisting pre-crimped (waved) wires. These wires are neither welded nor knotted at the intersections.
The waved wires are twisted crosswise which results in a high degree of stability of the mesh. The number of crimps within a mesh width is determined by the mesh width and wire thickness.
In some cases, it is possible to produce gratings featuring the same mesh width and wire thickness yet different numbers of crimps. ProMetall crimp screens are produced in mats (smaller mesh up to a wire diameter of approx. 2.5mm also available in coils).
We primarily produce square mesh, but we are also able to supply rectangular mesh. Diagonally arranged mesh is a special shape that is mainly used for fences. The borders are open with wire overhangs. Crimp screens are typically used for fences, gates, staircase and balcony panels, machine protection etc.
ProMetall crimp screens are basically used in every industry sector. We produce various combinations of mesh width, wire thickness and construction materials to meet different requirements.
In Austria, welded screens are also known as “stable screens”. In the production of welded screens, we use smooth pulled wires that are precisely and permanently spot-welded at right angles at the intersections.
As a result of the mats’ high stability and flexibility during welding and coating, and their bending and cutting capacity, ProMetall is able to provide its customers with the perfect mat for every application. Welded screens are used for fences, gates, staircase and balcony panels, protective gratings for machines, reinforcement, ventilation and many other applications. ProMetall has Austria’s largest warehouse range for welded screens and supplies the following varieties: STEEL BRIGHT, HOT-DIP GALVANISED and STAINLESS STEEL – available as MATS or COILS (smaller mesh combined with weaker wires). Crimp screens and welded screens (stable screens) are used in basically every industry sector. We produce various combinations of mesh width, wire thickness and construction materials to meet different requirements.
