Wire cloth is used in a wide array of industrial applications – from elements used in manufacturing processes to inclusion in OEM and finished products. Learn more about how our expensive range of manufacturing capabilities can serve your unique needs.
Wire cloth offers an enduring blend of aesthetic appeal, functionality, affordability, and eco-friendliness. Its intrinsic properties render it a perfect choice for both architectural and interior design applications.

Wire cloth weaves and fabricates industrial wire mesh baskets in a wide variety of styles, materials, frames, and lifting devices. Thousands are in use throughout the industry. Each is custom-built to meet your specific requirements for:

  • Heat Treating
  • Drying
  • Carburizing
  • Plating
  • Annealing
  • Dichromating
  • Nitriding
  • Cleaning
  • Hardening
  • Rotating
  • Pickling
  • Tumbling
  • Degreasing
  • Spinning
  • Washing
  • Anodizing

Bales, handles or hooks may be attached to the basket so they are: stationary, droppable, or swiveling in operation.

Basket styles fabricated by Cleveland Wirecloth include:

  • Rectangular
  • Pivoting
  • Tilting
  • Compartment
  • Nesting
  • Dumping
  • Round

Certain baskets may be formed from woven wire cloth with no special hardware. However, where frames are required, round or rectangular, they may be constructed from rod, flat, or angle stock. Basket tops may be equipped with smooth finish “U” bindings. Built-in accessories may include legs, lids, shelves, dividers, compartments, and sections. Baskets for small parts may be furnished with a small opening screen inner liner, with outer protection of heavy screen for strength. Assembly may be by welding or through fusion by spot, gas, or electric arc. Special cases may require clinched wire around the rod, riveting of screen to the frame, or soldering and brazing. After fabrication, woven wire baskets may be protected with additional coatings (e.g. zinc, tin, rubber, enamel or other suitable coatings).

Fabricated wire mesh is often used for burners and heater elements; flame guards and spark arrestors; vent screens; machinery and equipment safety guards and cages; screen sections for sizing and sifting equipment; shielding and sound control components.

The most important part of the strainer or filter is the screen, which guards an orifice or protects moving parts. One particle of scale, dirt, or other entrainment can cause serious damage to highly engineered, expensive equipment. To prevent equipment damage and protect against contamination, strainer screens must be designed of durable, corrosion-resistant materials with the specific application in mind. Cleveland Wirecloth individualizes strainers to customers’ design or we design a strainer to fit specific requirements. Our modern production facilities include electronic welding, soldering, stamping, rolling, folding, seaming, brazing, with particular attention being given to the finish desired.

Woven wire is the most popular material used in the manufacture of modern strainer screens. This is partly due to its inherent characteristics — high percentage of open area and roundness — which favor high flow and are ideal for flow patterns. Other reasons for woven wire popularity include its high strength and its ability to withstand extreme temperature variations, corrosive environments and vibration.

Woven screens find their greatest use in low and medium-pressure applications and typically range from 60-400 mesh. In high-pressure service, the fine mesh screen may be supported by a coarse backing screen. Plain weave screens ranging from .0008″ openings upward represent the bulk of strainer applications. For high pressures or heavy loads, twilled weaves are recommended.

  • Woven Strainer Screen Metals: Popular metals for woven wire strainer screens are nickel, inconel, monel and stainless steel. Other materials available include steel, galvanized, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum and others.
  • Strainer Shapes: Various strainer shapes include cylinders with closed and open ends, conical, frustrated cone, flat disc, semi-circular, dome shape, flat and flat irregular. Cylindrical strainer screens with one end closed are a popular shape. Closed end design can be flat, rounded or chisel pointed and constructed of solid metal or screen.
  • Single Screen Strainers: For general service, simple straining problems, light and medium grades of materials with from 40% to 50% open area are recommended. This application is good for moderate-pressure applications.
  • Multi-Screen Strainers: For complex straining applications, a combination facing screen for separation and backing screen for support is used.

Wire mesh for this application offers superior shielding to radio frequency interaction (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) when blocking incoming or outgoing energy is necessary to optimize functioning capabilities.

Wire cloth mesh screens are ideal guards and protective screens for equipment and machinery. Mesh guards offer great protection while allowing high visibility to moving parts of the machine.

Whether seen or unseen, wire cloth plays a vital role in functionality in numerous OEM applications.

While welded wire mesh is more commonly used for concrete reinforcement, woven wire cloth mesh is used to reinforce various other materials, such as the structure and support of medical implants. Titanium wire cloth is often used in these medical applications, as well as stainless steel for procedures such as hip replacements. The wire cloth mesh is often laminated between synthetics to create a more rigid structure for a variety of applications

Maximum vibrating screen production and efficiency is a result of many important factors. Some of these include selection of the vibrator; length and stroke of the unit; feed rate and method of feed; direction of rotation of circular action; and finally, the selection of screening media with the proper “hook” or screen edge preparation. Preformed metal hooks are engineered and designed for the grade of screen used to provide a means of applying tension until the surface is “taut.” A “taut” screening surface is essential for successful vibration performance.

Wire cloth offers an enduring blend of aesthetic appeal, functionality, affordability, and eco-friendliness. Its intrinsic properties render it a perfect choice for both architectural and interior design applications.

Architectural mesh excels in enhancing acoustics by deflecting and diffusing sound throughout any space. Wire mesh acoustic panels or drapes are suitable for both ceilings and walls, optimizing sound quality effectively. Ideal for environments from performing arts centers to office spaces.

Architectural mesh, particularly fine mesh, boasts exceptional flexibility, enabling it to be molded, bent, and twisted to fit various free-from structures. Its versatility allows for the creation of distinctive art installations and unique sculptural pieces.

Elevate your interiors with custom decorative wire mesh, an ageless solution that draws attention and enhances visual appeal in both residential and hospitality settings. From custom furniture to kitchen cabinets to fireplaces and bar carts, our wire cloth adds a unique, textured aesthetic combining functionality with exquisite design.

Architectural mesh transforms ceiling spaces by beautifully diffusing and boosting light and provides architects with boundless design opportunities. Exterior wire mesh canopies and facades offer climate control superior climate control shading areas from the summer heat while retaining warmth during colder months, all without sacrificing the views due to the wire cloth’s transparent nature. Crafted for elegance and efficiency, it’s an exemplary choice for any design vision.

Wire mesh fencing and enclosures offer a versatile security and aesthetic appeal, suitable for both interior and exterior spaces, adapting effortlessly from ornate to practical. Durable and customizable, our wire mesh solutions blend seamlessly with a variety of styles and environments.

Wire cloth infill panels are often found lining stairwells, encircling balconies, edging pathways, bordering bridges, and surrounding patios. Whether on stairs, balconies, or walkways, wire cloth-infused railings play a critical role in defining and securing these spaces while adding a unique aesthetic touch.
