It is well known that stainless steel mesh is an important component of security doors and windows. But did you know that the subtle differences in the techniques and procedures used by suppliers to manufacture this mesh equate to significant differences when it comes to the performance of the mesh?
Here we explore some of the factors that affect the quality and performance of stainless steel mesh used for security doors and windows.
There are hundreds of stainless steel security mesh suppliers worldwide that claim to have the highest quality mesh at the most affordable price. Comparing the different suppliers and the quality of the mesh they manufacture would be quite a challenge for any security manufacturer.
There are many important attributes to consider when analyzing the quality and performance of stainless steel mesh, including.
*Raw material and wire composition
*Weaving techniques and equipment
*Powder coating treatment
An aspect to consider is the diameter of the wire used in the stainless steel mesh. In Australia, the two most common wire sizes are 0.8mm and 0.9mm. Our Domine stainless steel security mesh can be supplied in diameters of 0.8mm, 0.9mm, 1.0mm, 1.1mm, and 1.2mm.
The tensile strength of individual wires is an important factor in the strength of stainless steel wire mesh. The tensile strength is a measure of the force the wire can withstand before it breaks. the stainless steel mesh used in the Domine system has a tensile strength of over 900 Pascals.
This means that it can withstand heavy loads before breaking - making it an ideal barrier for extreme weather conditions. It is worth noting - it is possible to increase the tensile strength of a single strand of stainless steel wire. This process, known as quenching, involves heat treating the wire and then cooling it rapidly - this changes its chemical properties and increases or decreases its tensile strength.
Having a high-quality wire is one of the most important parts of the process, but this will be meaningless if it is not combined with an effective weaving process.
Our Domine stainless steel security mesh uses a weaving method that relies on the precision of specialist machines. These machines are precision designed and well made, shooting out wire in a fast-moving pattern to form the weave and set the size and shape of the holes.
We all know that powder coating is applied to surface type finishes using a free-flowing dry powder. It is applied using an electrostatic process and then cured under heat.
To ensure a consistent and smooth powder-coated finish, the stainless steel security mesh should be pre-treated to clean and purify the surface. Not all stainless steel security mesh suppliers pre-treat the mesh prior to powder coating, which can affect the life of the finish.
As a stainless steel security mesh supplier, Domine uses a world-class powder - AkzoNobel powder. The powder has a strong attachment, and will not peel off or fade after many years.
