Our Stainless Wire Mesh can be fabricated into almost any shape using standard sheet metal techniques. The #4 mesh size is woven from 0.047" diameter stainless steel wire with 0.203" openings, resulting in 66% open area. We suggest this size for protecting headlights and passenger compartments from fairly heavy objects and debris larger than 0.203" diameter.
To protect against larger objects as well as smaller debris, use a layer of this mesh to back-up a layer of finer mesh, either our Medium Mesh #6 (Part No. 3641-Size) or our Fine Mesh #10 (Part No. 3640-Size).
Note: Shipped as flat sheets. This material cannot be folded or rolled into a cylinder without permanently deforming it.
