What is welded wire fencing?

Welded wire mesh fencing is steel fencing typically made of welded wire mesh panels. These panes consist of wire strands that have been welded together, forming strong mesh.

Welded wire mesh is considered to be a rigid mesh. Meaning, that the wires that cross each other and are welded together tightly limit the movement of wires.

Welded wire mesh is that sturdy it finds applications in various industries. Most commonly in constructions. These high-secure barriers are also a good solution for temporary fencing.

While welded wire panels are a popular rigid security mesh option, rolled mesh is also available.

Welded wire mesh fences can be differentiated by its gauge. Wire thickness typically varies between 2mm to 8mm. Additionally, horizontal wire pitch, meaning the distance between two horizontal wire strands, typically runs between 12.7mm to 200mm. Vertical wire pitch, also known as the distance between two vertical wire strands, alters between 10mm to 76.2mm.

What is PVC coating?

PVC coating, also known as plastic coating, is an addition to welded wire fences to protect them mainly from corrosion. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride and it is a cost-effective metal finishing solution.

As PVC is not only highly corrosion resistant, it is also highly resistant to abrasion, pressure, and even harsh chemicals. That allows welded wire fencing to last longer.
