The 12 Days of Building Product Terms: DAY 4 - Wire Cloth Infill

Click "Read More" to get started on day 4's term,
Wire Cloth Infill.


Wire Cloth Infill (or Wire Mesh Infill) refers to the inner area of a security screen. Wire cloth infill is stronger and more durable than typical cloth insect screening that is often seen on residential windows.

The strength of a particular type of wire cloth infill is determined by the amount of wires per inch and the diameter of each of those wires.

For example, a screen with 10 mesh .047" diameter would be considered a heavy duty screen.  This is because there are ten wires per inch and the diameter of the wires is thicker than average.

Rock guards for windows tend to be a 1 or 2 mesh (one or two wires per inch), bird screens are often a 4 mesh (4 wires per inch), and security grade screens would range anywhere between 10 to 12 mesh and greater.
