Features of Galvanized Steel Wire Mesh
1. Excellent Corrosion Resistance
The galvanizing process protects the steel wire mesh against oxidation to greatly prolong its service life. Under normal conditions, the hot-dipped galvanized wire mesh will last more than 30 years. Also, it is suitable for different climatic conditions and outdoor use.
2. Easy to Install
Due to its lightweight and good processing performance, it is flexible to use and install to meet your specific uses. They are often packaged in coils or panels.
3. Almost Free Maintenance
Galvanized steel mesh is just like other GI products. It requires less maintenance during use, which will lower your cost. By the way, it is more cost-effective than stainless products.
4. High Impact Resistance
Galvanized steel wire mesh is flexible. It can be bent into shape. This provides it with greater impact resistance. Therefore, even under strong impacts, it remains less prone to deformation.
5. Easy to Store
It comes in rolls. When you use it, you can cut it by length or size and then roll up the remaining part again for easy storage. In addition, it does not take up a lot of space when stored. This will save your space.
Application of Galvanized Steel Mesh
Galvanized wire mesh is widely found in industrial and agricultural applications, as well as construction, transportation, mining, and other industries, for example:
1. Construction Uses, like fencing or partition for highways, bridges, houses, gardens, sports grounds, gates, windows, etc. It is mainly for security purposes. Besides, due to its great strength, it is also widely used in cement floors, foundations, wall protection, slope stabilization, etc.
2. Daily Uses, such as shelves, animal cages, grilling, insect screen, sink, etc.
3. Agricultural Uses, for example, greenhouses, wire mesh for climbing plants, tree guards, etc.
Galvanized Wire Mesh for Poultry
If you want to build a fence for your poultry, then consider using galvanized wire mesh. This type of wire mesh is lightweight and economical and will limit your poultry from running loose while protecting them from other large animals. Because of the galvanized finish, it will last longer. In addition, it is very easy to install and can be used with U-posts, T-posts, or wooden posts. Wanzhi Steel recommends you choose the fence with 20 gauge steel wire, which can be flexibly adapted to your requirements.
Galvanised Steel Mesh Types
Hot-dipped VS Electro Galvanized Wire Mesh
According to the galvanizing process, it can be divided into hot dipped galvanized wire mesh and electro galvanized iron wire. The former one is the mesh is dipped into hot molten zinc to form a zinc layer on the surface of the mesh. While the electro galvanizing process is also known as cold galvanizing process, which uses organic zinc particles and paints the mesh surface.
Galvanized Woven VS Welded Wire Mesh
There are two ways to hand the overlapping sections of wire: welding them together or weaving them under and over one another. The welded mesh is made through welding processing while the woven mesh is made with hot-dipped galvanized wire.
Which Type Is Stronger?
Because the joints of welded wire mesh are welded together, it provides a degree of rigidity and strength. It can maintain its fixed opening shape even under stress. However, if external pressure exerts too much pressure on the intersections of the welded wire mesh, it will be prone to breakage. However, woven wire mesh does not have a fixed bond. It is more flexible than welded wire mesh but lacks the quality of rigidity. Woven wire mesh is capable of yielding when subjected to pressure and then springing back. Both types of wire mesh are strong enough. You can choose according to your actual needs.
Square, Diamond & Hexagonal Mesh
Galvanized wire mesh is available in different size designs, including square, diamond, rectangular and hexagonal. Wanzhi Steel can design different shapes of wire mesh products for you. Different shapes have different styles of mesh, so you can choose according to your actual needs. Here are the pictures for your reference.
How Does Galvanizing Prevent Corrosion?
Galvanized steel is of excellent corrosion resistance. Let’s review how galvanizing works.
The zinc layer provides a physical barrier to prevent corrosive substances from reacting with the underlying steel. Even if the coating is scratched, the exposed steel will still be protected by the zinc cathodic reaction. So in normal conditions, the galvanized steel wire mesh will last more than 20 years. The service life of steel mesh is also influenced by the thickness of zinc coating. You can choose according to your needs or you can contact us for professional tips.
How to Choose A Suitable Galvanized Iron Mesh?
The key to choosing wire mesh depends on the application. You need to consider the size of the mesh hole, the design, welded or chain link mesh, etc. For example, 6 mm*6 mm hole mesh is the best option for rodent protection or pest control. While the mesh with a hole size of 50 mm*50 mm will be a good option for general fencing needs and big animal enclosures, such as dogs, tigers, etc. Compared to woven mesh, the welded mesh is stronger and the surface is smoother. While chain link mesh is more commonly used as fencing because of its flexibility.
Anyway, you need to choose the mesh according to your specific needs. With the right product for the conditions, installed and maintained properly, your galvanized steel mesh will last for many decades. If you have any difficulty in deciding on which is the ideal mesh for you, please feel free to contact us for help.
