Almost every industry uses woven wire mesh in some way or another, including the food industry and agricultural industry. However, many people don’t know just how prominent the material is in our everyday lives. Here are 4 uses for woven wire mesh.
1. Gutter Lids
Your home’s gutters transport water from your roof away from your house, reducing water damage. Debris and pests can get into the gutters if they don’t have adequate protection. Wire mesh allows the water to flow freely while keeping large objects out of the gutters.
2. Pet Habitats
Some pets don’t do as well indoors, such as rabbits or chickens. You may not want to give your pets free rein in your entire yard, especially if you don’t have a secure fence. Woven wire mesh can confine the pets to one safe location in your yard.
3. Fireplace Screens
Fireplaces are a common place for pests to get inside your home. Squirrels and other critters can fall down the chimney into your fireplace. You can prevent this from happening by covering the chimney and fireplace with wire mesh. The smoke will still get outside, and critters won’t get inside.
Burglars are less likely to break into your home if you have protection around your windows. While a pair of wire cutters will allow free access to your home if the window is unlocked, the additional deterrent can discourage intruders.
