Mesh

 

a unit of measure that characterizes woven wire screens; it indicates the number of holes per linear inch (25.4 mm). The classification of a screen according to the mesh does not indicate the true size of the holes. Mesh is not based on the metric system and is virtually not used in the USSR.
