Steel Mesh for case mod.

Hey guys,

 

Does anyone know of a good place to pick up quality steel mesh ? Black preferably. Would be handy if they ship to UK.

 

I am modifying the top of my case to create a new vent space, as I am looking to make it removable via magnetic strips, it needs to be steel and not aluminium.

 

Any recommendations on something of good quality ?

 

Thanks,

E

I've done s.th. like that before yeas back. You can get bulk window screen insert material from most home hardware stores /departments in various mesh sizes, as well as steel or plastics.

I bought some of what follows back in 2016 that I thought was pretty good at the time. Seller is on eBay and the listing says they ship worldwide:

...ahhh, just noticed it was aluminum. Still, I thought it was pretty strong stuff for what it was.

The last time I used mesh in a build, I used this.

 

WWW.MNPCTECH.COM

Modder's Mesh. Make fan guards, grills, cooling vents, window overlays. Improves airflow and looks great. Honeycomb Modder's Mesh is...

 

Or you can get larger sheets from McMaster-Carr.  They also have any sort of hardware you can think of...and downloadable CAD files of many of the items they sell.  It's where I buy hardware for all my little hobby projects.  Don't know if they ship outside of North America .

 

WWW.MCMASTER.COM

McMaster-Carr is the complete source for your plant with over 595,000 products. 98% of products ordered ship from stock and deliver same...

@ENTERPRISE...further to my post above, here's a modified NZXT Phantom side-cover with a big hole cut where there was none & covered in store-bought window insert mesh (for cooling quad-SLI, back int the day)

...and here is a quick HomeDepot Canada page for mesh as an example; endless choices in synthetic, aluminum, steel etc. in the widow screen insert section...some of it with big hole / spacing, others tightly woven...I am sure UK stores have the same.

Thanks chaps, just to let you know, I actually went ahead and ordered some black steel speaker mesh which should do the job nicely, if not then I will consider the above.  

 

This sort of thing:
