Wire mesh panel fencing is becoming increasingly popular as a versatile and secure choice for schools and businesses. It’s quick to install and can work well in a range of settings, but it’s also important to understand that there are a few types of wire mesh panels around and choosing the right type for your business is important.
The first thing to consider is what kind of wire mesh fencing is best for your purposes.
When you’re investing in wire mesh fencing for security, it’s important to make sure that the steel used in the production of your chosen fencing is good quality, strong, and durable. Steel wire should be traceable back to an ISO 9001:2015-accredited source, which means it meets contemporary standards for this kind of product.
It’s also important to find out when your chosen steel was galvanised because this will determine some key facts about it. Steel should be galvanised after welding, so that the mesh’s protective zinc coating isn’t removed by the welding process. On the other hand, zinc alloy coated or pre-galv fencing can be galvanised before welding, because of its higher aluminium content.
The diameter of the steel wire which your mesh fencing is made up of will also have an effect on the strength of your fencing. The diameter of the wire and the amount of wires generally has an affect on the security level of the fence. The thicker the wire used in your mesh fencing, the stronger the fence will be, the more wires the fence has increases the delay to any miscreants.
