Metal/Plastic Mesh in VexU

I was wondering about the legality of using metal/plastic mesh in VexU such as

or

According to VUR3 and VUR4, VexU teams are allowed to create/use their own fabricated parts on the robot. These types of metal/plastic mesh can be made by weaving/bending metal/plastic wires together to be defined as a fabricated part. Of course, we are not using the products above but I was wondering if they were considered to be legal if we made them ourselves.

The main reason why we don’t want to use rubber mesh is in fear of them ripping during competition.
