Additional Benefits of Wire Mesh Grill Inserts

Cabinet Door Frame with Wire Mesh Grille (Lattice)

Wire Mesh Grill Inserts offer not only a visually pleasing accent to many furniture & cabinetry designs, but they also offer an additional functional purpose by allowing air flow to and from the mesh area where there may be a need for breathability.

Wire Mesh breathability is often practical for entertainment center and custom built-in creations, where any range of electronic equipment may require air flow when recessed onto a shelf, to avoid overheating during use. For additional accent, one may choose to place any choice of fabric behind the mesh insert to further add character to any creation and still allow air flow through the framed opening, while not allowing full visual access to what may be stored behind a door.

Our S618 Wire Mesh Grille Signature Series design is a stunning example of a Wire Mesh Grille Traditional style accent door. See specifications here.

Individual samples of Wire Mesh can be purchased in a 4 ½” x 8″ size upon request. The samples that WalzCraft offers provide a reasonable example of the color that can be expected on a wire mesh product.

Retainer for Installation

Please note that WalzCraft’s rubber retainer is compatible for affixing Wire Mesh Grille Inserts into any frame style door. Rubber retainer not only requires less time for installation, but also maintains a professional appearance from the backside of a door.

Crimping Methods

Each available Wire Mesh Pattern utilizes one of three basic wire crimping methods:
Single Crimped Wire Mesh Grille (Woven) Double Crimple Wire Mesh Grille Pres -Crimped Wire Mesh Grille (Lattice)
Single Crimp – This method bends wire back and forth at evenly spaced intervals. The wire is then woven into each crimp in each direction forming the mesh. As the wires begin to press against each other tension is created, which holds the mesh together. Double Crimp – This method is similar to the single crimp method, as the wire is bent back and forth at evenly spaced intervals; however, wires are then hand woven into every third crimp in each direction, forming the mesh. Press Crimp – This method is a bit different than the single and double crimp as wires are machine pressed in alternating directions along the length of each wire, forming an indentation that holds crossing wires in place after being hand woven together.
