heavy duty mesh

Posted by homebound (My Page) on

I need some sort of mesh to wrap a large skylight to keep debris out. Think weather resistant, heavy-duty.

Any idea where I can get such a thing and what it's properly called?

Hardware cloth?

RE: heavy duty mesh

I need something as fine (or finer) than window screen. But stronger to resist tearing since it will be wrapped around the skylight.

RE: heavy duty mesh

seems like something that fine will also block the light going through the skylight.

Does the skylight have an interior screen? If so, I'd wrap the outside with hardware cloth and let the interior screen handle the fine stuff.
