Fresh Inspiration for Springtime

11 November 2022

When buying a fence mesh, one of the most important factors to look out for is whether it is galvanized. What does it mean? And how to check if the mesh is galvanized?

How to check if the mesh is galvanized?

The galvanized fence mesh is made of galvanized wire. It has a characteristic metallic coating.

Galvanized mesh or additionally PVC coated?

At the very beginning, it is worth mentioning that all fencing nets available in our store are galvanized. Regardless of whether they are additionally PVC coated or without additional coating. We should decide on an additional PVC coating when we need additional protection.

Galvanization gives greater resistance to corrosion!

Galvanized fencing mesh is a mesh that undergoes a special treatment and is covered with a zinc layer, which is supposed to withstand the harmful effects of air and water for many years, which is not lacking in the places where the mesh is used. It is air and water that later cause corrosion of metal parts. At the same time, it is indicated that the zinc coating has a corrosion resistance in relation to non-galvanized steel, even several times greater!

Galvanized mesh availability

The advantage of the galvanized mesh is its availability. Our store offers galvanized mesh fencing of various heights (1.00m, 1.25m, 1.50m, 1.70m) and wire thicknesses (2.5mm, 2.7mm, 3.0mm).

All in all, galvanized mesh fencing is standard nowadays. We should decide on an un-galvanized mesh only when we are looking for savings. Sometimes, however, it is worth spending more money at one time, but be sure that the fence will retain its original appearance for many years. If we need even better protection, it is worth choosing PVC-coated mesh fencing.
