Wire Mesh


Mesh products: screening, woven, wedge wire and perforated materials

We supply woven mesh in almost all metal materials, but the common materials are 304 stainless steel, nylon mesh and HDPE mesh. For these non-metallic meshes (HDPE, nylon, polyester and polyethylene mesh) we have a separate “netting”  section.

Here, we deal with high quality woven wire meshes, welded wire meshwedge wirefencing panels perforated metalsexpanded metals. These materials have numerous uses in various industries ranging from mining to aquaculture.

Materials are available in a variety of metals, including nickel, steel, aluminium, brass, copper, nitinol, stainless steel and titanium. Some of the specialized materials need to be imported on request. Some may need to be manufactured. Specialized mesh can be air-couriered in quite quickly (e.g. #400 mesh nickel).

Stainless Steel woven wire mesh


We supply stainless steel woven wire mesh (302, 304, 316, 304L, 316L). In South Africa 304 stainless steel mesh is commonly available.

Typical Weaving Patterns for Stainless Steel Wire  Mesh: Plain weave, twill weave, Dutch weave, reverse Dutch weave.
General Use: Stainless steel wire mesh, with its  excellent resistance against acid, alkali, heat and  corrosion, find extensive uses in processing of oils,  chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, also sorting and  screening of solid, liquid and gas in mine, metallurgy,  airspace, machine making, aquaculture pond outlet screens etc.

Small quantities of stainless steel mesh are available for some micron sizes.

Please email aqua@ecotao.co.za with your requirement.

Brass Wire Mesh


We can supply brass wire mesh (cloth), phosphor bronze wire mesh (cloth) and copper wire mesh (wire cloth).

We can supply brass wire mesh (cloth), phosphor bronze wire mesh (cloth) and copper wire mesh (wire cloth). We provide good quality woven wire mesh and wire cloth in brass, phosphor bronze, copper, stainless steel and other alloy at very good price.

Brass wire mesh (cloth) and phosphor bronze wire mesh (wire cloth) are frequently used as sieving and filtering materials in screening pellet, powder, porcelain clay and glass, chinaware printing, filtering liquid and gas. Brass wire mesh and wire cloth possess greater strength than copper wire mesh or bronze wire mesh. Copper wire cloth finds wide usage in traveling water screens, radio frequency interference shielding, sugar and marine applications.

Copper mesh

Copper mesh can be used as a snail exclusion device in gardens and general horticulture. Snails develop a significant voltage when in touch with copper, so this provides an environmentally friendly solution.

Crimped Wire Mesh


General Use: Crimped wire mesh is used in screening in mine, coal factory, construction and other industries.

Weaving  Pattern:

Weaving after crimping

General  Use:

Crimped wire mesh is used in screening  in mine, coal factory, construction and other  industries. Some galvanized crimped wire  mesh and stainless steel crimped wire mesh are  for roasting of flour food and meat.

Welded Wire Mesh

Welded Wire Mesh

Welded mesh weaving and characteristics: including galvanizing after weaving, galvanizing before weaving etc. (Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh, Black Wire Welded Mesh Panels, PVC Coated Welded Mesh Panel).

Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh Panels: Made with low carbon iron wire, through automatic spot welding, treated with zinc coating in the surface. Usually it is produced according the UK standard. Galvanized welded wire mesh has flat surface and firm structure, it is a kind of wire mesh with the best corrosion resistance among the iron wire meshes family, also the most popular one with widest range of applications. Galvanized welded wire mesh offers a kind of decoration, it can be used in hardware processing, also as mesh sheets in construction to save cost.

Expanded Metals

Expanded mesh materials: stainless steel, iron plate, copper plate, aluminium plate, and also can be finished with different coatings.

Generally the expanded mesh is made into flattened expanded metals and general purpose raised expanded meshes.


Widely used in the core of filter, medicine, filtering, breed, battery, mechanical protecting, making the crafts, the meshes for the high-grade sound box, decorate, the seating for children, small basket and basket.

Perforated Metals

Perforated metal is another source for filtration, straining and decoration. It is extremely versatile and lightweight. 

The most common applications include: screens, diffusers, guards, filters, vents and more. Customer perforation is our strong side for your service.


The materials which are normally perforated are: common steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous materials, others, such as plastic, etc.


The thickness ranges generally from 0,6 up to 20 mm, while the maximum length is normally 1500 mm. If the rewinding as bands is not required the length should not be more than 6000 mm. On request it is also possible to exceed these values. The perforated metals can be supplied in sheets.


The most required are round, square, elongated slotted and rectangular. Hole patterns can be staggered and straight aligned holes.

These can be custom manufactured to your specification if sufficient quantities are required.

Wedge wire products

Wedge wire is used in various water filtration and mining applications. Custom manufacture of wedge wire is one of our strengths.

Wedge wire screens are either for flows from outside inwards or from inside outwards.

Diamond mesh fencing

Rolls of galvanized and PVC coated diamond mesh are available.
