Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh
Galvanized welded wire mesh is an ideal choice for both indoor and outdoor applications. Its galvanized finish protects the mesh from rusting, which makes it durable and corrosion-resistant. Also, its uniform surface makes it popular for different uses, including fencing, filtration systems, cages, etc. Wanzhi Steel is a top steel mesh manufacturer in China, which offers both GBW (galvanized before welding) and GAW (galvanized after welding) wire meshes in various opening sizes, shapes, wire thickness, etc. Also, we stock PVC-coated welded wire mesh in different colors.

Galvanized Welded Mesh Uses
Galvanized welded mesh is widely used for fencing, decoration, filtration systems, etc. in construction, agriculture, transportation, garden, sports field, and other aspects.
1. Construction uses include, but are not limited to bridge, highway, sport filed fencing, gabion, partition, safety guards, infill panels, gates, and windows, as well as other decorative applications.
2. Animal control, such as chicken loops, dog fencing, rabbit hutches, bird or insect screen, etc.
3. Agriculture uses, including but not limited to garden fencing, greenhouse use, panels for climbing plants, etc.
4. Industrial uses, for example, filtration systems, machine protection fencing, etc.
What Is Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh?
There are two methods to make galvanised welded meshes, namely, galvanized before welding (GBW) and galvanized after welding (GAW).
GBW Wire Mesh
GBW wire mesh is the most economical option. It is made of strands of galvanized steel wire, and then the wires are welded together. While the protective zinc layer is burned off during the welding process. But it means the welded joints where the wires intersect are unprotected, which will shorten its service life. GBW wire mesh is ideal to use for small animal cages or other indoor uses.
Features of GBW Wire Mesh
2. Limited service life
3. Available in a wide variety of gauge and mesh sizes
4. Suitable for indoor uses or less corrosive environment
GAW Wire Mesh
It refers that the wires are welded into mesh first, and then the entire mesh is galvanized, including hot-dip galvanizing and electro-galvanizing. Hot-dipped galvanized welded wire mesh is made by dipping the welded mesh into a bath of molten zinc. While electro-galvanized mesh is to place a layer of zinc on the surface of welded mesh using electroplating technique. The entire mesh, including the welded joints, is thoroughly covered and protected from corrosion and rust. So it is more durable than GBW mesh.
Features of GAW Wire Mesh
1. Long-lasting and durable (because it is fully protected by zinc-coating, especially hot-dipped galvanized mesh)
2. Less maintenance
3. Available in different gauges and mesh sizes
4. Suitable for harshest conditions
5. Smooth Surface
Types of Welded Wire Mesh
There are different types of welded wire mesh. According to the structure, usage, and characteristics, it can be divided into galvanized welded wire mesh, welded wire fabric for concrete slab reinforcement, PVC coated welded wire mesh, stainless steel welded wire mesh, and so on. Next, Wanzhi Steel will take you through them one by one.
1. Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh
Zinc binds to the surface of the wire, thoroughly sealing and protecting it from rust and corrosion. As a result, this type of welded wire mesh is more durable. It is supplied in both rolls and panels. People often use it for building structures. In addition, it is ideal for making animal cages, fences, grilles, and partitions.
2. Welded Wire Fabric（WWF）
Welded wire fabric is a prefabricated reinforcing material. Normally, WWF is made by spot welding and roll forming steel wire rods. Most commonly, the diameter of the individual wires within the rolls of WWF is 6.0 millimeters (0.24 in). This wire diameter can vary from five to six millimeters based on the application in which it will be used. Depending on the concrete thickness that needs to be reinforced, the number and size of wires should be determined accordingly. It is one of the most popular reinforced materials for concrete structures and highways because of its relatively low price and high strength-to-weight ratio.
3. Stainless Steel Welded Wire Mesh
This type of mesh is excellent in terms of longevity and performance. It is one of the most popular metal mesh. Stainless steel welded wire mesh provides a bright surface and extreme corrosion resistance, which enhances its longevity and performance. However, it is important to note that it is expensive. Choosing stainless steel welded wire mesh may increase the cost of your budget.
4. PVC-Coated Welded Wire Mesh
PVC coated welded wire mesh uses mild steel wire or galvanized steel wire as material, and then the wires are welded into meshes. After being welded, the mesh will be coated with polyvinyl chloride. The common colors include green, white, black, etc. PVC-coated galvanized welded mesh is very corrosion-resistant and weather-resistant because of the zinc coating and PVC coating. It is ideal for garden fencing, plant support, tree guards, animal cages, sports field fencing, etc.
Features of PVC-Coated Welded Wire Mesh
1. Corrosion-resistant and Weather-resistant
2. Extremely Durable and Long-lasting
3. Attractive Appearance – smooth surface, more colors to choose from
4. Less Maintenance
How to Choose Galvanised Welded Mesh Panels?
Galvanized welded iron wire mesh is a versatile and low-cost material. It is easy to install. Also, the welded mesh will keep the integrity of the structure even if a few wires are broken. And galvanizing makes them corrosion-resistant and durable to use. Before purchasing, you need to consider the following factors.
1. Purpose or function for your mesh. It will help you select a suitable mesh size, wire diameter, and opening size.
2. Service environment. Where the mesh will be used? Is it corrosive or humid? What is the weather like?
3. Expected service life. How long do you want the mesh to last?
4. Does your project require a lot of labor for maintenance when the wires rust?
Wanzhi Steel offers a wide range of wire meshes, including welded and woven wire meshes to satisfy your requirements. Please feel free to talk to us for more details.
Package of Galvanized Welded Mesh
Galvanised welded mesh is often packaged in rolls or in panels according to its application or customer’s need. The galvanized welded wire mesh rolls are packaged with waterproof paper or woven bags (inner) and plastic cloth (outer). While the galvanized welded wire panels are packaged with wooden pallets and waterproof cloth. It aims to protect the wire mesh from rust during shipping and storage. If you have any special requirements, please contact us.
