Some instructions I am following from an American site call for 'hardware cloth'. It's a kind of square wire mesh, that can take weight. I can't find this on any UK sites (the closest I could find is chicken wire, which I expect wouldn't be as strong). Presumably it has a different name. What is it?

Welded wire mesh, or woven wire mesh. Stucco netting also might do you. For supporting a stove chicken wire is probably fine also.
