CF Metals offers a full line of carbon steel and galvanized welded mesh products for all industries. CF Metals' carbon steel and galvanized welded wire mesh are high quality (grade A) and come in the following standard products.

Carbon Steel & Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh Products

Welded Mesh From Bright Basic Steel - This mesh is used when cost is a major factor due to the low cost of the material. The main drawback for using this product is the mesh could rust when exposed to climate change or if it is used in a damp environment.

Welded mesh made from copper flashed steel - This product is used for applications when the mesh will be coated with nickel after fabrication. It is commonly used for fryer baskets for the food industry.

GAW (galvanized after welding) mesh - In this process, the mesh is hot-dipped galvanized after the wire is welded, coating all the weld intersections. GAW welded wire mesh performs well in damp environments and is used in applications such as ventilation screens, animal enclosures, and light duty industrial applications.

GBW (galvanized before welding) mesh - In this process, the wire is coated prior to welding, leaving the welds uncoated. While GBW provides some protection against damp conditions, it is more prone to rust than GAW mesh. It is primarily used for indoor applications such as security screens and guards for machinery.

CF Metals' carbon steel and galvanized welded wire mesh products are available in the following standard configurations. Custom products can be designed to meet your requirements

  • Opening size, or mesh count, ranging from 1/4” up to 2”. Typically the openings of welded mesh are measured from center to center of the wire.
  • Wire diameters ranging from .025” to .12” in standard configurations. Larger diameter wires are available for custom applications. Wire diameters are measured prior to welding.
  • Roll sizes up to 72” wide and custom panel sizes are available. We can manufacture rolls and flat panels in custom sizes to meet your production requirements. Generally, welded mesh is made in rolls when wire diameters are smaller than .080” and in flat panels when wire sizes are over .080”.

Our unique manufacturing process enables us to provide welded mesh that is flat without curl.
