# How To Calculate the Stainless Steel Welded Wire Mesh Weight?

There are some customers do not know how to calculate the stainless steel welded wire mesh weight, we are pleased to showing the easy calculators and examples for your quick learning.

## Few Important Terms

Mesh, Opening/Aperture And Mesh No. Per Inch

When the word 'MESH' is used to describe the measurement of woven or welded wire it indicates the space measured between center-to-center of wire. When the word "OPENING" or "APERTURE" is used to describe the measurement welded wire mesh it indicates the space measured between inside-to-inside of wire.

Mesh VS Opening/Aperture

Mesh No. Per Inch =25.4/(mesh opening size+ wire dia.)

• For example1 . 1/2"mesh equal 2mesh, 1/4"inch equal 4mesh no matter what the wire diameters is.
• For example2 . 10mm opening/aperture, if 1mm wires, the mesh per inch=25.4/(10+1)=2.3mesh no. per inch
• 10mm opening/aperture, if 1.2mm wires, the mesh per inch=25.4/(10+1.2)=2.26mesh no. per inch

Stainless Steel Wires Weight Calculator

Wires weight = wire dia .(mm)× wire dia .(mm) × Length(m) ×0.00617

## Square Hole Welded Mesh Weight Calculator

Square hole stainless steel welded mesh rolls

weight per m2= wire dia .(mm)× wire dia .(mm) × mesh no. per inch/2

• Example 1:
1/2 inch × 1/2 inch × 0.9mm ×40inch× 100 feet
Weight per square meter= (0.9 × 0.9 × 2) / 2 =0.81kg
Weight per roll = (0.9 × 0.9 × 2 × 1.016×30.48) / 2 =25kg
• Example 2:
20mm mesh opening × 1.5mm ×48inch× 100 feet
Mmesh no. per inch=25.4/(20+1.5)=1.18mesh no. per inch
Weight per square meter= (1.5× 1.5 × 1.18) / 2 =1.32kg
Weight per roll = (1.5× 1.5 × 1.18 × 1.219×30.48) / 2 =49.3kg

## Rectangle Hole Welded Mesh Weight Calculator

Rectangle hole stainless steel welded mesh

weight per m2= wire dia .(mm)× wire dia .(mm) × warp mesh no. per inch/4+ wire dia .(mm)× wire dia .(mm) × weft mesh no. per inch/4

• Example 1:
1/2 inch × 1inch × 2mm ×40inch× 100 feet
Weight per square meter= (2 × 2 × 2) / 4+ (2 × 2 × 1) / 4=3kg
Weight per roll = 3kg× 1.219×30.48=111.46KG
• Example 2:
15×30mm mesh opening × 2mm ×60inch× 150 feet
Weft mesh no. per inch=25.4/(15+2)=1.49mesh no. per inch
Warp mesh no. per inch=25.4/(30+2)=0.79mesh no. per inch
Weight per square meter= (2× 2 × 1.49) / 4+ (2 × 2 × 0.79) / 4=2.28kg
Weight per roll = 2.28kg× 1.524×45.72=158.86KG

## Stainless Steel Welded Mesh Panels Weight Calculator

Stainless steel welded wire mesh panels

weight per m2= wire dia .(mm)× wire dia .(mm) × wires total meters×0.00617

• Example 1 :
50mm×100mm× 5mm×2m×3m
Wires total meters =(2000/50+1) ×3m+( 3000/100+1) ×2m=185m
weight per piece= 5×5×185×0.00617=28.5kg
• Example 2 :
100mm×100mm × 5mm ×2m×3m
Wires total meters =(2000/100+1) ×3m+( 3000/100+1) ×2=125m
weight per piece= 5×5×125×0.00617=19.2kg

Notes:

When using the stainless steel welding mesh weight calculators, the units of Wire diameter (must be in mm), Roll/Panel width (must be in meter), Roll/panel length (must be in meter).

The weight calculator is a little different for square holes stainless steel welded wire mesh and rectangle hole stainless steel welded wire mesh, and stainless steel welded wire mesh panels.
