Wire cloth is woven with wires of various diameters or thicknesses. These measurements are expressed in gauge numbers, inches or millimeters. Washburn & Moen Gauge is considered the standard in the manufacture of wire cloth, and all specification on this site are expressed this way.
When you are in doubt about wire size or gauge, the safest and surest procedure is to submit a sample of the wire cloth desired and indicate its ultimate use.
