Wire Mesh 


Wire mesh, also named wire cloth or wire fabric, is a highly versatile product with thousands of different applications worldwide. What makes wire mesh such an adaptable product is that it can be produced in a countless number of specifications. Depending upon manufacturing capabilities, almost endless combinations of opening sizes and diameter wires can be made, either in a woven or welded construction.

The most recognisable use of wire mesh is in fencing, caging, and enclosures. When used as fencing, wire mesh is typically used to fence in livestock, like sheep, goats and pigs, or fence out undesirable nature, like deer. Wire mesh fencing is versatile and can be used to mark property boundaries or enclose a garden.

Wire mesh provides a wide range of options for opening size and wire diameter. Depending on the fencing or caging application, a woven or welded wire mesh can be customised to achieve a desired opening size. For example, small animals like rabbits require a smaller opening size and thinner diameter wire than larger animals like horses or cows, which need a larger opening size and a much thicker diameter wire.

Wire mesh is a top-rated product for all farming uses and can often be found around farms and gardens. Wire mesh is popular among large farms and DIY gardeners due to its versatility, various options, and low cost.

The list beneath highlights some of the additional popular uses for wire mesh in agriculture:

  • · Crop protection · Compost bins
  • · Trellises or vertical gardens · Chicken coops
  • · Deer fencing · Planters
  • · Greenhouse use · Tree and plant guards
  • · Pest and critter control · Livestock barriers
  • · Horse fence · Property line demarcation
  • · Equipment repair


Mesh / Mesh Count 

Understanding the terms "mesh" and "mesh count" is crucial in the industry. These two terms signify the number of openings per linear inch in wire mesh. When specifying wire mesh, it is essential to consider the mesh or mesh count. To determine the mesh or mesh count, start from the centre of one wire and count the number of openings to a point precisely one linear inch away.

Space / Space Cloth

The space between two parallel wires is called "space" and is measured from the inside faces of adjacent wires. This is commonly referred to as "space cloth".

Gauge/Diameter Wire

In the wire mesh industry, the words "gauge" and "diameter wire" are often used interchangeably to refer to the thickness of individual wires. However, decimals are the preferred method of stating wire diameters since there are different gauge systems.


PVC Wire Mesh 

Plastic-covered mesh is often preferred for gardens and natural surroundings as it blends in better than metal galvanised mesh. It is ideal for crop protection, lightweight fencing, tree guards, plant support and small animal enclosures such as rabbits and chicken coops.


Chicken Wire

It is used for small animal enclosures, chicken coops, fruit cages, general gardening & DIY applications.

13mm x 13mm - fruit cages, bird protection, keeping out squirrels and larger rodents.

25mm x 25mm – chicken runs, bird proofing, fencing, plastering and floor screeding.

31mm x 31mm – rabbit protection.

50mm x 50mm – chicken coops, poultry enclosures, general purpose, and fencing.


Stock Fencing 

Stock fence is an affordable and durable type of mesh made in various sizes. Perfect for fencing forest areas, fields, orchards, and highways. Hinge joint fencing is suitable for all types of stock and is used for cattle, sheep, pigs, dogs, etc. Due to their easy assembly and disassembly, they are also suitable for temporary fencing of construction sites or private areas. The so-called “forest net” can be mounted on wooden poles with staples and on special metal posts. It is an effective, economical method of separating and protecting livestock, dividing fields, and creating boundaries. Stock fencing is available in several grades and roll sizes to suit different applications.

Cat safe mesh 

Wire mesh 25x25mm heavy-duty wire mesh - This strong wire is suitable for fox/dogproofing. We also recommend this wire for cats as thinner wire can cut their paws if they climb it.


Chain link fencing/Security Fencing

Chain link fencing is a popular option due to its affordability and ease of installation. In fact, a person with basic handy skills can install a chain-link fence without hiring a professional fencer. Since it is transparent, it allows sunlight to pass through, and its open style makes it ideal for areas that are particularly windy and exposed. 

This type of fence is also highly versatile and can be used for various purposes, such as security, animal enclosures, gardens, sporting grounds, etc.


Barbed wire 

Barbed wire is a common sight in rural areas, predominantly used to create fences and pens to keep livestock safe and secure. It is also heavily used in prisons and similar institutions. Working as a deterrent for those looking to enter or leave, it makes for a cost-effective security method. The benefits of barbed wire sustainability are that it does not require machinery to install and, as such, doesn’t create any harmful pollution. The robust steel used to make barbed wire is easy to recycle and long-lasting. Barbed wire is easy to install and can be attached to most structures with minimal effort. Because of its versatility, barbed wire can quickly and safely move to a different location. A cost-effective solution for securing your property, barbed wire is a simple yet effective form of security. Industries such as agriculture benefit from sturdy and low-maintenance barbed wire that saves money. Using only galvanized steel, it acts as a highly durable line of defence even in harsh weather conditions. It is difficult to climb over the barbed wire from a security perspective. Barbed wire's serrated points make it an effective deterrent for potential intruders. Though it may be easy to become entangled in, its cost-efficiency and ease of installation make it easy to repair any damages without dismantling the entire structure. This repair process is quick and can be done without the need for professional assistance.


Galvanised line wire 

A single-strand line wire is finished in galvanised to prevent rusting. It may be used for different styles of fences or other creative purposes and is typically used to tension different fence wires, creating a nice straight fence line. Perfect to use with stock fence wire and chain-link fencing. The wire holds the fencing horizontally tight and stops the mesh fencing from sagging and breaking. Depending on the height of the fencing, additional galvanised straining line wires should be installed at the bottom and middle of the fence. 


Galvanised Staples 

Galvanised staples are suitable for indoor and outdoor use because they are coated with zinc to prevent corrosion. This means they are typically water and weather-resistant and can resist rust even in wet conditions.

Typical uses for wire netting include agricultural fencing, rabbit cages, and pet enclosures. Barbed wire and tensioning fencing line wire are also common.


Metpost Spikes

Fix fence posts securely in the ground with a drive-in Metpost Post Support Twin Bolt System (Spike). Metpost post holders are a simple, fast, and sturdy way to anchor standard fence posts. The Twin Bolt System grasps the posts - no nails or screws needed - and its four-fin spike is driven into the ground to provide a stable, durable post fixing within minutes.
