Welded Wire Mesh Fencing Guide

FENCING

In agriculture, fences are often used to keep animals in or out of an area. The materials of the fences depend on terrain, location, and animals to confine. Most of the agricultural fencing height range from about 4 ft. high. In certain areas, the height and construction of fences are to hold livestock mandated by law.

STEEL WIRE/ WELDED WIRE MESH

The steel wire mesh made of high-quality hot-dip galvanized material, is resistant to high temperature, corrosion, acid, and alkali. The metal wire mesh has a uniform structure, uniform thickness, wear-resistance and durability, and long service life. High finish, no surface treatment required, and easy maintenance. It is also very convenient to use it with tin scissors to cut into different shapes and sizes according to requirements. The product used as safety nets, building, fan, fireplace, foundation ventilation, gardening, drainage, cabinet, door and window nets, etc.

REASONS TO CHOOSE MESH FENCING

The mesh fencing material is of solid steel or hardened steel.

It is commonly utilized as an edge fence for modern or business purposes. This type of fencing gives a more satisfying appearance and gives protection, security, and toughness. It is financially savvy and more alluring than the run of the mill choices. Wire mesh fencing is accessible with different sizes with justified gaps. These gaps can extend from very fine 6mm cover to 50mm gaps, and the measure (thickness) of the wire can likewise change. Security-based fencing work will have bigger gaps.

The screens display exceptional dimensional strength and restricted resistance of thickness on the texture utilized in the screen printing process. Printers encounter more uniform and precise opening widths.

It is the quality of the material from which these advantages get inferred. Specifically, the solid nature of the steel takes into consideration the use of more slender wire measurements. Furthermore, steel wicks away dampness, keeping it from getting ingested.

The advantage of utilizing a stainless steel wire mesh screen is that it keeps up its shape and size. The properties of steel from which it is being made oppose contraction, stretching, and drooping. Subsequently, the printer appreciates faultless screen printing, even following the process.

TYPE OF MESH WIRE

There are many types of mesh wires in the market that you can go for. One of the most common wires is the standard poultry wire that is well known for its hexagonal formation. This mesh is common when the interest is in low-security enclosures. For more security, wire panels with a tighter weave get chosen. If you don’t want animals to get into your farm appeal for large mesh wires. When looking to prevent small animals such as mice, go for wire with a fine mesh.

Wire mesh, as the name suggests, is a length of intertwined wires forming a barrier. When these intersections get welded together at regular intervals with equal gaping, the barrier becomes welded wire. Depending upon the application, the mesh gets created in different types and styles for both domestic and industrial purposes. Based on the welding process and the different types of materials used in its construction, these wire categories are as follows:

PVC Welded Wire Mesh

The wire used for the construction of this type of mesh is yet coated with fine PVC powder for corrosion resistance. The plastic coating protects the underlying metal as well as imparts color to the finished good.

Galvanized Wire Mesh

As the title goes, the metal wires have zinc coating through the galvanization process. Depending upon the process used, this welded mesh is as mentioned below.

Electro

The galvanization process uses electricity to bond zinc to the underlying metal wire. Electrolyte solutions like chloride or cyanide used in the process to impart strength and corrosion resistance to the wires that results in a bright, shiny coating.

Hot Dipped

This is another type of galvanization process, wherein the product must get dipped in a galvanization tank full of molten zinc at a temperature of around 450°C. The process forms zinc carbonate on the surface of the wire giving a strong, dull gray compound.

Welded Stainless Steel Wire Mesh

The stainless steel wires when welded together at the intersections to form a uniform steel barrier. Widely used for the product’s stability and relatively low costs, stainless steel welded mesh seen as perimeter fencing across a variety of industries for its ease of deployment and durability.

Welded Fencing Panel

These panels are pre-constructed in set shapes and sizes to fit as fences outside homes, parks, gardens, etc. The finished structure is sturdy and stable, yet can dismantle and reuse and it also enhances the look of the property.

APPLICATION OF WELDED WIRE MESH

There is a wide variety of applications for welded wire mesh across sectors. Some of these applications apart from the wide usage as different types of fencings are:

Wire Cloth

Commonly used as screens for keeping insects out. These wire cloths are woven and welded meshes with tiny, uniform openings. These openings come in various sizes also.

Screen Doors

The wire meshes used as screen doors and windows or as ventilation shaft covers to let in light and air also keep unwanted materials from entering inside.

Welded Wires for Concrete Reinforcement

These wire meshes welded together at close intervals to form a square grid or square for pouring concrete. When the mixture settles, the same gets integrated into the concrete and imparts strength and stability to the concrete structure.

EASE OF INSTALLATION

Different types of wire mesh materials have different methods of installation. Some need specialized installation while others are easy to install. In fact, there are many that you can install on your own. While you might have the impression that the one that requires specialized installation is the best, it’s not always the case. There are many mesh wires that are easy to install but are very effective in their work.

Whether you hire a professional to install the mesh for you or you install it by yourself, ensure that you do a good job. As a rule of thumb, ensure that the installation is secure. To prevent the loose mesh from bending and falling, keep the posts equal or greater in height than the wire mesh. For the posts to last for long, paint them to prevent it from getting damaged.
