Change Height

Tools required to recut heights of panel.
  • Safety glasses
  • Measuring tape
  • Diagonal wire cutters 7" minimum
  • Long nose, or needle nose, pliers
  • Wooden board with nails.
Lay out mesh on plywood or similar and stretch between two nails.

Do not over stretch as wire will bend. (See next slide)

Make sure mesh is protruding 1" to 1 1/2" over plywood for ease of cutting and crimping wire.



Final cut height should protrude 1" to 1 1/2" over edge of plywood for ease of cutting and crimping.







Cutting the wire:
Cut the top wire as shown, cut right up next to the wire that is wrapping around. (Leave end long enough for crimping)

Repeat the same step by cutting from the bottom




With needle nose pliers, bend each wire back to itself as shown in next slide.








Close all ends as shown in first two wires.


Change Width

Tools required to recut width of panel.
  • Measuring tape
  • Diagonal cutters
  • Needle nose pliers
Total mesh width should be about 40% larger than your fireplace opening.

Example: Opening is 36":
36" x 1.40=50.4" Divide that by two gives size per each panel. Final size would be approximately 25" to 26" wide. Extra width will add to the beauty of the fireplace. (Added Drape)




Cut first doubled wire past your measured length.









Cut other side as shown.









At the opposite end, note the same two wires are crimped. (Twist them out.)









Twist wires out together.
