Aluminum wire mesh is widely chosen for its relative affordability compared to other metals, as well as for its low weight compared to steel or stainless steel. Aluminum wire mesh is about a third of the weight of a stainless steel mesh with the same specifications, and is very useful for lightweight screening applications like air vents.
Due to its light weight, Aluminum wire mesh or wire cloth can be useful in personal audio headsets where low weight is critical.
