Galvanized welded wire mesh fence indicates the individual wires, themselves, used to manufacture the mesh have been galvanized before the mesh is woven or welded. Depending on the mesh (or opening size) and diameter wire, Galvanized welded wire mesh fence is usually the less expensive option, especially if custom manufacturing is required.
Galvanized welded wire mesh fence is exactly as it sounds. This material is usually made of carbon steel or plain steel and is usually placed in a galvanizing bath to produce a post-galvanizing weld specification. In general, this option is more expensive based on availability and other variables, but does provide a higher level of corrosion resistance. This added level of corrosion resistance is most noticeable at the joint or intersection of galvanized welded wire mesh fence specification.
One of the main benefits of a galvanized welded wire mesh fence, and particularly of a galvanized welded wire mesh fence specification, is that it tends to offer a wide variety of opening sizes and diameter wires. For instance, mesh opening sizes, such as 4” x 4”, 2” x 2”, 1” x 1” and ½” x ½”, tend to be readily available from stock in a handful of popularly requested diameter wires.
Due to its attractive price point and its corrosion resistance, galvanized welded wire mesh fence is very popular among industrial users of wire mesh. Usually, galvanized wire mesh fence is specified in applications where relatively large opening sizes are needed. Keep in mind that galvanizing a relatively fine mesh after weaving may block the opening, making it unusable in many applications. For this reason, 10 x 10 mesh and finer meshes are usually made into galvanized woven articles.
