Defining Wedge Wire
Wedge wire is a highly versatile and adaptable stainless steel product with many applications and benefits. Its V-shaped profile separates and filters solids from liquids, and it can be moulded to a project’s specifications, making it ideal for a wide range of industries, including mining, milling, food and beverage production, civil infrastructure, architecture and more.
Functional Applications of Wedge Wire
The most common applications of wedge wire include the following:
Wedge Wire Screens
Traditionally, to make a wedge wire screen, lengths of wedge wire are welded or clamped onto an underlying steel framework. The length, depth, width, and size of the screen can be varied as per project requirements, and wedge wire screens can be used as filters to separate solids from liquids, retain media, or to size-up, collect and distribute material.
Load-bearing wedge wire screens are ideal as platforms and walkways in industrial settings. When it comes to walking surfaces, slip resistance is a vital consideration, and a platform must be free from tripping hazards and safe for heels. This is where our Heelguard wedge wire screens have an edge over other products available on the market.
Due to the high level of finishes available in stainless steel, Heelguard wedge wire screens can also be used to make ‘statement pieces’ in an architectural setting such as a sculptural staircase or patterned partition. With the range of configurations possible, wedge wire screens can also be used to create dramatic light and shadow effects.
As a highly flexible material, wedge wire is also popular with artists and sculptors. It can be turned and formed into any shape, making it a popular choice for water sculptures, interactive art pieces, kinetic, and mobile artworks.
Durability and Longevity of Stainless Steel Wedgewire
As well as flexibility, wedge wire has a huge range of benefits, owing to the material properties of stainless steel. It is a strong, durable, low maintenance, high quality product that can be used anywhere—indoors, outdoors, in marine environments, high chemical exposure sites and more.
