Types Of Welded Wire Mesh And Specifications

Wire mesh reinforcement is widely used as an important element for construction for industrial as well as commercial applications. Wire Mesh is an integral part of construction and is widely preferred as an important tool for construction purposes. After years of research and development and exposure to client’s requirements across the world, we can now manufacture and deal in the following types of Welded Wire Mesh.

The technique and process of welding determine which type of welded wire mesh is suitable for a particular job and which can be used accurately. Below is a list of different types of Welded Wire Mesh that we can supply:

1. Epoxy Coated Welded Wire Mesh

Protection from corrosion is the most important reason to choose this type of Welded Wire Mesh. By applying a protective coating on the surface of the mesh, the metal part in the inner surface can be protected from corrosion. Besides this, Epoxy Coated Welded Wire Mesh also adds color. This aspect of this mesh is very common in applications such as zoos, farming, decorations, etc. Epoxy Coated Welded Wire Mesh usually carries lower costs as the inner metal wire is of less thickness.

2. Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh

Galvanization is a process that involves the use of zinc for the coating of a surface. We can manufacture Galvanized Welded Mesh using two distinct processes: electro process and hot-dipped process. While the former makes for a glossy surface, the latter results in a matt finish. Hot Dipped Welded Wire Mesh carries more costs than the former owing to superior characteristics to avoid corrosion. For general application, Electro Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh is preferred.

3. Stainless Steel Welded Wire Mesh

The welded wire mesh made of Stainless Steel consists of a uniform steel barrier at the intersections. Multiple grades of Stainless Steel Welded Wire Mesh can be produced, most common being 304, 316, 316L. Owing to its ease of use and high reliability, this type of wire mesh is most preferred in critical industries such as Oil & Gas, FMCG, Desalination plants, etc. Costs for this type of Wire Mesh are usually high due to its superior anti-corrosion properties.

4. Welded Wire Fencing

Welded Wire Fencing is manufactured in rolls or panels. These pre-constructed fences are available with or without galvanization. Fence without galvanization is usually low-cost and easy to install. Rolls are customized to the client’s specifications, need minimal to no cutting, and can easily be installed by skilled labor. There are a lot of additional materials like posts, rings, pliers, etc which are needed to install a fence. Panels are pre-constructed in set shapes and sizes to fit the structure it is being used. It can be dismantled and reused easily. This type of fence is most commonly used in roads for walkways, residential complexes, sports fields.

5. Welded Steel Bar Gratings

Welded steel grating is produced by resistance welding of bearing bars and crossbars under high temperature and pressure. This results in a permanent joint. This technique of manufacturing this mesh results in a smooth and flat surface. Welded steel grating can be manufactured using several metals – Carbon Steel, Aluminum Steel, and Stainless Steel. Welded Steel Bar Grating is the most commonly used among all grating types due to its low cost of production and easy installation. This type of mesh is widely used in walkways, platforms, safety barriers, drainage covers, and ventilation grates. Welded steel grating has an anti-slip surface, corrosion resistance, good drainage function, and high strength and load capacity.

6. Welded Wire Fabric for Slab Reinforcement

Welded Wire Fabric is a prefabricated reinforcement consisting of a series of parallel longitudinal wires with accurate spacing welded to cross wires at the required spacing. The electric Welding technique is used in the production of this fabric using a highly automatic mechanism to achieve high accuracy. The wires used in the fabric are cold drawn from controlled quality mild steel wire rods with carbon content generally less than 0.15%. The mechanical interconnections established via welds to cross-wires are responsible for stress transfer from concrete to steel and vice-versa in the case of welded wire fabric. This fabric is used for slabs and reinforcement works in the construction industry primarily.
