Types of Welded Wire Mesh

There are several types of Welded Wire Mesh, each with its own unique characteristics and applications:

Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh

This type of mesh is coated with a layer of zinc, which provides excellent resistance to rust and corrosion. It is commonly used for fencing, animal enclosures, and construction applications.

Stainless Steel Welded Wire Mesh

This type of mesh is made of high-quality stainless steel, which provides excellent resistance to rust and corrosion. It is commonly used for industrial applications, such as filtration and sieving.

PVC-Coated Welded Wire Mesh

This type of mesh is coated with a layer of PVC, which provides additional protection against rust and corrosion, as well as added durability. It is commonly used for fencing and animal enclosures.

Welded Wire Mesh Panels

This type of mesh is made of larger panels, which can be easily installed and provide a larger coverage area. It is commonly used for fencing and construction applications.

The Specification of Each Type of Welded Wire Mesh

Type of Welded Wire Mesh Mesh Size Wire Diameter Width Length Surface Finish
Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh 1/4"-4" 0.5-5mm 0.5-2m 5-50m Galvanized
Stainless Steel Welded Wire Mesh 1/4"-4" 0.5-5mm 0.5-2m 5-50m Stainless Steel
PVC-Coated Welded Wire Mesh 1/4"-4" 0.5-5mm 0.5-2m 5-50m PVC-Coated
Welded Wire Mesh Panels 1/4"-4" 0.5-5mm 1-2m 2-3m Galvanized or PVC-Coated

Material of Welded Wire Mesh

The material used to make the welded wire mesh can impact its properties, such as strength, durability, and resistance to rust and corrosion. Some common materials used in Welded Wire Mesh include:
 
  • Low carbon steel: This is a cost-effective option for Welded Wire Mesh that provides good strength and durability. However, it may be susceptible to rust and corrosion over time.
 
  • Stainless steel: This material is highly resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a good choice for industrial and marine environments where the mesh may be exposed to harsh conditions.
 
  • Galvanized steel: This type of material is coated with a layer of zinc, which provides excellent resistance to rust and corrosion. It is commonly used for fencing, animal enclosures, and construction applications.

Roll Size of Welded Wire Mesh

The size of the roll of Welded Wire Mesh is an important consideration because it can impact the ease of handling and installation of the product. The roll size can vary depending on the manufacturer and the specific product, but common roll sizes include:
 
  • Width: 0.5-2m
  • Length: 5-50m

Tensile Strength of Welded Wire Mesh

The tensile strength of the Welded Wire Mesh is a measure of its ability to withstand tension or pulling forces without breaking or deforming. The tensile strength can vary depending on the mesh size, wire diameter, and material used. Some common tensile strengths for Welded Wire Mesh include:
 
  • Low carbon steel: 40-60 kN/m
  • Stainless steel: 70-90 kN/m
  • Galvanized steel: 50-70 kN/m

Coating of Welded Wire Mesh

If the Welded Wire Mesh is coated with a protective material, it can improve its resistance to rust and corrosion, as well as its durability. Some common coatings used for Welded Wire Mesh include:
 
  • PVC: This coating provides a layer of protection against rust and corrosion, as well as added durability. It is commonly used for fencing and animal enclosures.
  • Galvanized: This coating involves applying a layer of zinc to the mesh, which provides excellent resistance to rust and corrosion. It is commonly used for fencing, animal enclosures, and construction applications.
 

The application of Welded Wire Mesh

The application for which the Welded Wire Mesh will be used is an important consideration because it can impact the required mesh size, wire diameter, material, and coating. Some common applications for Welded Wire Mesh include:
 
  • Fencing: This may require a certain mesh size and coating to provide the necessary level of security and protection.
  • Animal enclosures: This may require a certain mesh size and coating to ensure the safety and well-being of the animals.
  • Construction: This may require a certain mesh size and material to provide the necessary strength and durability for the intended use.
Application Mesh Size Wire Diameter Material Coating
Fencing 1/2"-2" 1.2-2.5mm Low carbon steel or galvanized steel Galvanized or PVC
Animal enclosures 1/2"-2" 1.2-2.5mm Low carbon steel or galvanized steel Galvanized or PVC
Construction 2"-4" 2.5-5mm Low carbon steel or stainless steel Galvanized or PVC

FAQs for Welded Wire Mesh

Welded wire mesh is a type of metal screen composed of intersecting wires that are welded together at their contact points. It forms a grid-like pattern and is commonly used in construction, fencing, industrial applications, and concrete reinforcement.

Welded wire mesh offers several benefits, including high strength and durability, uniformity in mesh size and shape, resistance to corrosion, ease of installation, and versatility in various applications. It provides structural support, prevents cracking in concrete, and offers security and containment in fencing.

Welded wire mesh comes in various types, including galvanized welded wire mesh (coated with a layer of zinc to enhance corrosion resistance), PVC-coated welded wire mesh (provides additional protection against rust and corrosion), and stainless steel welded wire mesh (offers excellent durability and resistance to rust).

To select the appropriate welded wire mesh, consider factors such as the intended application, required strength and durability, mesh size (the spacing between wires), wire gauge (the thickness of the wires), and the environment in which the mesh will be installed. Consulting with a professional or supplier can help ensure the right choice.

Proper maintenance of welded wire mesh involves regular cleaning to remove debris, dirt, and rust, particularly in outdoor installations. If the mesh gets damaged, it should be repaired promptly to prevent further issues. Depending on the coating (if any), following the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and maintenance is recommended.
