Properties

Being self-extinguishing, our products are characterised by their flame resistance, shock resistance and low outgassing. All of our metal meshes are inherently safe.

Our knitted wire mesh is ideally suited for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and other shielding applications used in guided munitions, antenna systems and other electronic applications. In addition, the products are used for venting and filtration in the engine air intakes of military vehicles and vessels.

Other applications include the sealing of back-shells and connectors in aviation electrical systems, and sound and vibration dampening.  Whether air, ground or sea, KnitMesh products help our defence forces keep us safe.

Applications
EMC

EMC

Modern telecommunications and electronic devices require protection against radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI); our knitted wire mesh products help to guarantee the EMC integrity of all sorts of military equipment.
KnitMesh Technologies supply EMC shielding tape as a Pan Mesh approved manufacturer for the Eurofighter project.

Gas Analyser

Gas Analyser

Knitted wire mesh filters are a key component in many types of gas detection equipment, assisting in essential processes such as gas flow and gas recognition.

Breather filter

Breather filter

Knitted wire mesh has a unique interlocking asymmetrical wire loop structure that when made up into multi layered filter pads creates a tortuous path that is highly effective for particle capture and elimination of entrained materials and droplets in air and vapour flows.
Such filters are used in a variety of military vehicles and are suitable for diverse terrains and climates.
