Hexagonal Wire Netting

Pre-Gal. Hexagonal Wire Netting

Hexagonal wire netting

Hexagonal wire netting is also called chicken wire, rabbit wire netting, or poultry netting, it is hexagonal opening woven wire netting, which is made of pre-galvanized wire or PVC coated wire, or done galvanization/PVC coating after weaving.

Hexagonal wire netting has a firm structure and flat surface. It offers good ventilation for fencing uses. It is extensively used as light fencing for poultry, farms and pet enclosures, tree guards and garden fencing, also used in industry and agriculture, construction as reinforcement and fencing.

Gabion Mesh Box

Gabion Box

The gabion box is also called gabion mattress, gabion basket, or stone cage gabion wall, which are rectangular cages made of hexagonal double-twist wire mesh filled with appropriately size rock or quarry stone. Qinghe classify the gabion box here because it looks similar with hexagonal wire netting, and using very similar weaving ways. The possible coatings are heavily galvanized; For high corrosion resistance, PVC coated wire is available. The PVC coating is 0.5mm thick at least, and this additional coating gives full protection from corrosion in marine or heavily polluted environments.

Gabions are used in many situations including the stabilization of earth movement and erosion, river control, reservoirs, canal refurbishment, landscaping and retaining walls.

Galvanized Hexagonal Wire Netting Types according to different Procedures:

Hot Dip Galvanized after Weaving: Weave with high quality low carbon steel wire first, then do Hot Dip Gal., zinc coating from 30g/sqm to 250g/sqm. The netting is white shiny, smooth and with high anti-corrosion ability.

Hot Dip Galvanized before Weaving: Weave with hot dip gal wire, basically the zinc coating is 50g-60g. The netting is white shiny, smooth and with high anti-corrosion ability.

Electro Galvanized before Weaving: Weave with electro gal wire, also available with electro plating wire.

Electro Galvanized after Weaving: Use high quality low carbon steel wires to weave first, then do electro Gal.

PVC Coated Hexagonal Wire Netting Materials

PVC coated after weaving: Plain steel wire or gal. wire is woven into chicken wire then doing PVC coated. Popular colors are green, black, yellow, and brown. PVC layer is from 0.2mm to 0.5mm. This layer of PVC will greatly increase the service life of hexagonal wire mesh, anti-ultraviolet radiation, anti-aging weathering effect, and through the different color choices, make the hexagonal wire mesh integrate into the surrounding environments well.

PVC coated before weaving: Weaving with PVC coated wire, wire diameter usually is 0.8mm-2.6mm. Such chicken wire has high strength, and is not easy to deform. It has the advantages of being anti-aging, anti-corrosion, and having long service life, etc. Popular colors are green, black, and brown. Other colors can also be made. It’s able to bear great tensile strength and easy for construction and transportation.
