Although steel wire mesh is primarily used for spark screens for fireplaces, it is also used for security and decor.
When you have a fireplace, you can't have too much safety features. Having a mesh screen is one of the most budget friendly ways to protect your family and home from flying sparks. They also help to keep curious pets and children out of the fireplace. Another factor that not everyone thinks of is a mesh screen can keep the birds and bats from flying into the room. (Another way to prevent animals from getting in your house is to have a screened chimney cap)
Colored mesh is becoming popular not only in the decor field but also as a complement to the fireplace. While is sounds nice to say that you have real copper or brass or even stainless mesh, the truth is that they will discolor when the heat hits them. People are often unhappy with the change especially when they pay so much money. But more people are opting for the mesh to be powder coated or painted in any one of a variety of colors.
There are a wide variety of sizes available as well as made to order (custom) mesh curtains. We are always happy to provide a custom quote for your special projects. The mesh comes in 1/4" and 3/16" weave and the material is corrosion resistant.
