Wire Mesh Design, Supply, Fabrication and Installation
Locker woven wire mesh is supplied in a range of metals on the roll, cut to size or in strips. In addition to supply, our highly skilled team combine unparalleled experience with technical knowledge to provide a fully bespoke and complete service. Working with architects, designers, planners and main contractors, we develop ground-breaking new applications for our versatile range of materials, as well as providing fabrication, engineering and advice for specific bespoke projects.
Woven wire mesh is strong and durable, with fire resistant properties. It is largely self-maintaining and flexible enough to adapt to fit forms, frames and underlying structures. The majority of our wire meshes are constructed from solid metals and therefore far more fire resistant than comparable composite materials.
We offer a full range of woven wire mesh specifications, from the finest wirecloth filters to heavy duty rigid screens, and our mesh is regularly used within the following sectors for a myriad of applications from tiny filters to huge building facades.

The Locker Clarifier System is designed to reduce suspended solids (S.S.) carry over to lower levels using mesh screening panels. Subsequently B.O.D. (biological oxygen demand) is also reduced in the final effluent produced by sewage and waste water treatment works.
Locker Radiant Heat Shield cladding panels provide safety and protection for personnel and equipment against radiant heat from Oil Rigs and FPSO flares. Wire mesh heatshielding panels are lightweight and rigidly structured to withstand the offshore environment and rough handling.
The Locker Group Ltd has been a leading supplier and manufacturer of woven wire mesh and wire cloth for more than 130 years. Originally established in Warrington, UK in 1878, the quality workmanship and spirit of innovation which defined Locker mesh products then, still hold true today.
