Plain and Twill Weave Wire Mesh

Plain and Twill Weave Stainless Steel Wire Mesh

Hightop Metal Mesh manufactures stainless steel plain and twill weave wire mesh to meet customers' specifications.

Stainless steel plain weave wire mesh is woven by alternating the shute wire over and under the warp wire, creating a wire mesh. 

Stainless steel twill weave wire mesh is woven by passing the shute wire over and under two warp wires, creating a sturdier weave. This weave allows for the use of heavier wires, producing a stronger wire mesh.
