How To Choose Hexagonal Wire Mesh?

Aug. 11, 2022

Chicken wire mesh is made of woven wire with openings and many times it is referred to as hexagonal wire mesh. Some of these wire meshes have rectangular and diamond-shaped openings, such as chain link fencing. But it is very common to use hexagonal wire mesh for wire mesh.


It is also made from different materials, depending on the purpose of the wire mesh. Some of the materials used for hexagonal wire mesh are plastic, galvanized iron, brass wire, and even stainless steel.


Galvanized wire meshes are very durable and less likely to corrode or rust. They are made of electro-galvanized wire or wire dipped in zinc. On the other hand, plastic wire mesh is made of carbon steel coated with plastic, also known as PVC wire mesh, and it comes in a variety of colors.

How to choose hexagonal mesh?

1. Galvanized Hexagonal Wire Mesh

Galvanized hexagonal wire mesh is galvanized on the surface of hexagonal wire mesh, and the material can be low carbon steel, stainless steel, zinc 5% aluminum alloy (galfan), or iron. Normal zinc coating hexagonal wire mesh can be used for chicken wire, rabbit fences, garden fences, decorative mesh, and stucco mesh. Heavy zinc coating hexagonal wire netting can be used as rockfall netting, gabion baskets, and gabion sacks. Zinc-5% aluminum alloy (galfan) is usually made into gabion baskets or gabion sacks.


Galvanized hexagonal wire mesh can fence birds, chickens, and poultry, protect plants or flowers, used for crafts, gabion basket, or rock fall.

2. PVC coated hexagonal wire mesh

PVC coated hexagonal wire mesh is wrapped polyvinyl chloride layer on the surface of hexagonal wire mesh. Internal wire's material may be low carbon steel, stainless steel, zinc-5% aluminum alloy (galfan), iron, or galvanized wire.


PVC coating can protect the mesh from corrosion, rust, and oxidation, and survive a longer life in a terrible environment. This kind of hexagonal mesh is nearly impossible for rodents to chew through and can protect poultry from being hurt. It can blend in with its surroundings by choosing different colors.


PVC-coated hexagonal wire mesh is stored in a roll and can be used for rabbit fences, chicken wire, or gabion mesh.

3. Steel hexagonal wire mesh

If you want strong and affordable hexagonal wire mesh, steel hexagonal wire mesh is the best choice for you. Steel hexagonal wire mesh includes two kinds: low carbon steel hexagonal wire mesh and stainless steel hexagonal wire mesh. Low carbon steel, also known as soft steel, has low strength, low hardness and easy rusting, but good toughness.


Although stainless steel hexagonal mesh has a higher price than low carbon steel, it can resistant to corrosion, rust, oxidation, has smooth surface without clear up. It can be used as chicken wire, rockfall netting, stucco netting, gabion basket and gabion sacks.


Steel hexagonal wire mesh can be used for chicken wire and poultry fencing and stored in rolls.

The use of wire mesh for hexagonal wire mesh.

Hexagonal wire mesh is flexible and durable, and has a variety of valuable uses.


1. Using hexagonal mesh in garden fencing

Birds aren't the only things that predators visit. Animals such as deer and squirrels can also wreak havoc on gardens.


Just like a poultry fence, chicken mesh keeps these animals out of the garden. Horizontal chicken netting ensures that the animals are not able to pass through the openings. It is also able to withstand the weight of the animals against it.


2. Use as poultry bedding

PVC-covered hexagonal mesh with small openings can also be used as poultry bedding, especially for chicks. It protects birds from burrowing animals and also makes cleaning easier. Hexagonal wire mesh is best suited as poultry bedding because it is durable and can withstand the pressure of poultry.

3. Use of hexagonal wire mesh in poultry fencing

Chicken wire mesh is used as a fence in poultry fencing. The fence keeps the birds contained and prevents them from getting lost. It also helps keep predators out. The best material to use for poultry fencing is galvanized mesh with hexagonal wire mesh.


It is strong and can withstand the strain, as well as the weight of the animal on it. The multiple weaving of hexagonal wire mesh also helps it to withstand disintegration over time.


4. Use as trellis netting

It is very important to use hexagonal mesh as a trellis for climbing plants.


It serves as a support for these plants and it can be used for several growing seasons before it eventually gives way, unlike some other kinds of supports. This is because it is able to bear the weight of the plants against it. Also, a cut on one of the wires does not completely damage it or the plants.
