A welded wire mesh fence is a steel fence using wire strands welded together to form a high strength mesh. Welded wire mesh fences are used predominantly as high security barriers where visibility through the fence is necessary or desirable.
There are several finishes that welded wire security mesh fence comes in: powder-coated, galvanized, painted or sprayed, and stainless steel. The gauge of metal used is another important factor. Wire thickness is typically from 2mm to 8mm. Horizontal and vertical wire pitch is situated to create a no climb pattern.
Security fencing is typically used around public buildings, around private offices, in parks, zoos, and nature reserves, and as residential perimeter fence.
