Would this be suitable to make a fire pit screen?

Asked by TK September 2, 2020
1
Answer

I don't think it would be suitable strictly because it's not a fine enough mesh to stop the fine embers and sparks of a fire. It's tough enough for sure. If I was going to use in that kind of application i would double or even triple in layers, and still keep a close eye on it. I've used the 1/4 and 1/2" mesh in numerous applications. Maybe see if there is an 1/8" available. Either way, closely monitor the fire.

What temperature can it with stand? I need to build a new lid for a tank that had a basking light.

Asked by Penny February 15, 2020

Answers

Typically, mild steel has a melting point of 1350C-1530C (2462F-2786F), although the galvanizing on this mesh will typically begin oxidizing/melting at around 449 °C (840 °F). Provided your basking light does not exceed 840 degrees Fahrenheit, you'll be fine.

Does this product contains toxic lead? And if so how much ppm?

Asked by Keith November 13, 2019

Answers

After having handled it to secure a pet cage for my children’s room, I noticed a fine particle residue on my hands. Upon looking into it I wondered it it contained lead. I used a swab test that indicated that there was indeed lead on the product. I’m now concerned as I was handling it for hours with assistance from my children. You would think there would be a warning label indicating the contents of the material especially if it is hazardous.

Yes, I saw this on the shelf at the Durango Home Depot when I bought mine.

Can this be used in a high-heat application such as a grill or smoker?

Asked by netjunkie9 August 27, 2019

Answers

I would contact the manufacturer for information about your specific potential application. I used this material to build a rock/dirt sifting box, but from what I can tell, it’s application for use in a high-heat environment is likely limited. The hardware cloth, while sturdy, is relatively thin. I suspect that high heat would significantly weaken it. I hope this answer helps. Good luck!

This product contains lead
This wire mesh appears to be soldered together using leaded solder according to the label on the actual in store product. The online advertisement of the same product does not state that the product contains lead this is misleading advertising. Lead is not good for any animals that I know of and definitely should not be used for any water filtering application, or making cages for pets. If you intend to use this for caging animals keep in mind that if they chew on it in addition to zinc they well also get a dose of lead... Typical leaded solder contains 63% lead, 37% tin... I will say the solder joints look good though...
