Rigid pvc (uPVC) trim is easy to work with and bonds reasonably well with suitable glues, such as pvc solvent cement, for the strongest butt joints it is recommended to use fusion welding which can be achieved at home with an electric hob and a little practise. Or if you tell us your design, we can build it for you. Although you can cut with various tools, it is recommended to use a fine tooth saw to obtain a perfectly straight cut.
This material will grip any size of mesh, but for more demanding applications it may require gluing to the mesh, there are many glues available to bond stainless steel to uPVC, cyanoacrylate (superglue) is one example that works well.
