    Sorry the title sounds a bit confusing but I need to buy some thing to stop dust getting into a pc, I have a small piece of the stuff, it's black about 0.25mm thick with 0.8mm diameter holes in it and it's made of a stiff material either pvc or a glass fibre compound.

    I need a large piece and I am getting no were in finding out who sells this stuff in UK.

    If anybody can help would be very appreciated as I feel as if I'm knocking my head against a wall.

    I've used this before and it works a treat

    Flyscreen Insect Mesh Material - £7 for 1.2m² of the stuff

    you can use two or three layers to really block off the dust if you want. I attached mine with tiny magnets I bought off ebay

    suenstar that is the stuff I need from moddiy.com, just wondered if there is any were in UK that sells the same stuff.

    I don't mind waiting just seems kinda stupid to have to order from abroad

    Not to worry - mine is all very hidden so it doesn't matter what it looks like! It is cheap and does the job well but is rather ugly :lol:

    Waynio looks interesting I think it will be some thing different to look at with the correct lighting behind it.

    So will give it a try and as long as I can get an air flow through the mesh copper or brass will certainly look good and it's not exactly expensive.

    Thanks for taking time to help much appreciated
