Galvanised Welded Mesh Panel
Galvanised welded mesh panel is made by welding thick steel wires to form a rectangular or square mesh hole. The galvanised finish offers excellent corrosion resistance and silver coloured appearance. Due to its great durability, rigidity and strength, it is suitable for a range of applications, such as garden fencing, animal cages, pond covers, construction uses, etc. At Wanzhi Steel, we stock a large range of wire mesh products available in both light and heavy gauge, apertures, and mesh sizes. Welcome to talk with us for more details!

What Is Galvanised Welded Mesh Panel?
Galvanized welded mesh panel is a kind of welded mesh. As the name implies, it is manufactured by welding steel wires into rectangular or square structure. Compared to wire mesh roll (using wire diameters of 0.6 mm to 2.00 mm), panels use thicker wires. According to the making method, there are different kinds of panels to choose from.
1. Hot-dipped galvanized before welding (GBW) mesh panel
2. Hot-dipped galvanized after welding (GAW) mesh panel
3. Electro-galvanized before welding (GBW) mesh panel
4. Electro-galvanized after welding (GAW) mesh panel
GBW mesh panel actually uses galvanized wires as raw materials. After welding, the zinc coating of the joints will be burned away, which will lose the galvanizing protection against rust and corrosion. While GAW meshes use low carbon steel wires as raw materials. Then the whole mesh panel will be fully galvanized. It will be more durable. Below let’s review the differences.
|Hot-dipped galvanized before welding (GBW) mesh panel||Galvanized wire||Galvanized first, then welded into mesh||Great|
|Hot-dipped galvanized after welding (GAW) mesh panel||Low-carbon steel wire||Welded into mesh first, and then hot-dip galvanized||Excellent|
|Electro-galvanized before welding (GBW) mesh panel||Galvanized wire||Galvanized first, then welded into mesh||Good|
|Electro-galvanized after welding (GAW) mesh panel||Low-carbon steel wire||Welded into mesh first, and then electro-galvanized||Great|
Hot Dipped Galvanized Welded Mesh Panel
It is galvanized by immersing the wires or mesh panels in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 450 °C. Generally, hot-dip galvanized products have a thicker zinc coating and offer better corrosion resistance.
Electro-galvanized Welded Mesh Panel
Electro-galvanizing is also know as cold galvanizing. The zinc coating is applied by electroplating, running a current of electricity through zinc solution with a zinc anode and steel conductor. Compared to hot-dip galvanized mesh, electro-galvanized one has thinner zinc coating (less than 30 g/m2). But it has smoother surface and also, it will be much cheaper.
PVC-coated Welded Mesh Panel
At Wanzhi Steel, we also have galvanised welded wire mesh sheet with a plastic coating. The PVC coating makes it more corrosion and weather resistant. Also, PVC wire mesh offers more color options. The most popular color is green, black, white, etc.
Galvanized Welded Wire Panel VS Welded Reinforcement Mesh Panel
The differences between common galvanized mesh panels and reinforced welded mesh are obvious.
1. Different Wire Diameters
Generally, the common wire mesh uses thinner wire, while the welded reinforcement concrete mesh uses thicker wires.
2. Different Materials
The difference in material is the essential difference between them. The common welded wire mesh is made of high-quality low-carbon iron wire or galvanized wire, and is formed by spot welding with automated equipment. While the welded wire mesh for concrete is made of steel bars. So the wire diameter is relatively thicker, and the weight is heavier than the common welded mesh.
3. Different Applications
The welded reinforcement mesh is mainly used in construction works, like bridges, buildings, highways, tunnels and so on. The common welded mesh panel has a wider range of applications. It is ideal for garden fencing, floor heating mesh, animal enclosures, tree guards, security panels, climbing plant support, etc.
So how to choose a suitable wire mesh? The first thing is to depend on the use purpose. Here is an exmaple, for a small bird aviary, we would recommend wire mesh with smaller gaps. For example, the 13*13 wire mesh will be the most appropriate. If you want more details, please contact us!
Tips on Transporting Galvanized Wire Panels
When transporting your GI welded mesh panels, there are a few things that you have to pay attention to:
1. Place a layer of protective pad under the mesh panels in order to avoid damage during transportation.
2. Do not place sharp objects with them. Otherwise, the zinc layer on the surface may be scratched, and which may cause rust.
3. Put GI welded mesh panels in a straight and reverse way, and tie them closely with ropes to make sure it is safe during transportation.
4. Use waterproof covers rather than putting them in the open air. It will protect the mesh panels from humid conditions.
At Wanzhi Steel, our products are often packaged with waterproof kraft paper inside and then plastic films outside, and then be fixed with pallets.
In brief, the galvanised welded mesh panel is a cost-effective solutions for many uses. It is durable and long-lasting to use. Also, its silver coloured appearance makes it can be used directly. Wanzhi Steel has a factory, which stocks a large range of GI mesh panels for sale at a competitive price. Moreover, we have an experienced and multilingual sales team to provide you professional tips. Welcome to contact us for more information!
