Create a square plane with a ton of horizontal and vertical segments.
Convert to Editable Poly.
Select and chamfer all of the vertices.
Weld overlapping vertices.
Select and chumfer all of the edges just a little bit.
Press Ctrl+I to invert selected edges.
Convert selected to polygons, press Ctrl+I to invert selected and delete the inside polygons.
Add necessary thickness with Shell modifier or by selecting and dragging all of the borders.

If it's rendered from distance you might get away with 3 sided renderable spline via shape from edge.

Probably just a tileable alpha texture and use the same or similar texture as bump could be enough..

He tried opacity but couldn't get a decent "depth" effect.

If it "kills" the pc make one small section, instance it and use proxys.

...what are your pc specs ?

Use opacity and disp for the depth.
Or make a small square and instance tile it.
Or use a proxy.
