A welded wire fabric, also called welded wire mesh, is a type of steel reinforcement material that replaces the traditional “cut and bend” and instead, makes use of an electric fusion to create parallel longitudinal wires across spacing.  The steel crossed wires serve as a strong protection against forces and serve as a good alternative from the more traditional fences.  It is produced by machines in various sizes, as it follows a precise dimensional control, which is considerable in order to produce strong material.

 

The Uses Of Welded Wire Fabric

This type of wire fabric has a number of benefits.  First, it is useful when protecting properties and stock because of its metal screen and low carbon steel wires.  Thus, it is being used in many different industries, such as in agriculture, transportation, industrial, horticultural, as well as food procuring industries.  It is also used in the procurement of fences during economic downturns, since it is cheaper when compared to chainlink wire.  Because it does not bend easily, this wire fabric can likewise be used in mines, in gardening, and as machine protection against strong outside forces.

 

The Types Of Welded Wire Fabric

There are many types of welded wire mesh that are available in the market today.  There is the electro galvanized welded wire that has square openings typical for property and infrastructural purposes.  The galvanized welded mesh (hot-dipped), on the other hand, is made of plain steel wire that is perfect for building animal cages and fabricating wire boxes.  Meanwhile, the PVC-coated welded mesh comes with galvanized iron wire that can prevent rusting and corrosion.  There is also the welded stainless steel mesh that is most useful for industrial fencing, since it is long lasting and corrosion resistant.  All these types of wire fabric come in different prices, types, and versions.

 

The Costs Of Wire Fabric

As of now, the costs of wire fabric come in a range of prices based on the type of material as well as the quality.  The 6×6 wire fabric would range from $0.35 to $0.59 per sheet fabric.  The 4×4 wire fabric, on the other hand, would range from $0.41 to $0.77 per sheet fabric.  If it is beam and column wrapped, the galvanized material would cost $144, while the galvanized wire fabric costs $149 per column of sheet fabric.  It would be best therefore, to prepare about $150 for each needed sheet of fabric.

 

The Benefits Of Wire Fabric

Welded Wire FenceMany customers have decided to choose wire fabrics instead of the wooden, cemented, or chainlink wire fences.  I, for one, have decided to put wire fabric fences in my backyard.  It does not obscure the view and allows visual enjoyment and a more carefree environment.  It is likewise good for vines and trailing plants, good for gardening and for keeping animals in place.  Wire fabric is everything in one, everything that one would look for in a fence.  Welded wire fabric gives me security and contentment, knowing that I will always be protected from other disturbing forces.
