358 Welded Mesh

358 welded mesh finds its predomiant use in fencing systems designed to bring maximum perimeter protection to a site. This style of mesh is universally accepted as the most secure form of welded mesh panel commercially available with significant inherent advantages over products such as chain link fencing or other forms of welded mesh fencing owing to its unique configuration.

The mesh is made in galvanized or bright wire in an aperture configuration of 75 mm vertical wire pitch by 12.7 mm horizontal wire pitch. This means a clear opening between horizontal wires of less than 9 mm – insufficient to insert hand tools for cutting the mesh. The vertical wires of the mesh further restrict the opening available forming small rectangles throughout the panel. The mesh is therefore extremely difficult to penetrate using conventional hand tools and thus gives a delay time under attack several times greater than traditional fencing products such as chain wire mesh.

The closeness of the horizontal wires also makes for a mesh panel almost impossible to climb when used as part of a fencing system. The mesh apertures are finger proof and the closeness of the horizontal wires gives excellent visibility through the mesh both from head-on and angled directions. The welded mesh panels have a non-aggressive appearance with pleasant aesthetics further adding to their pre-eminence over other wire fencing panels. Finally unlike chain link fencing the welded mesh will not unravel or lose stability if cut – every intersection of every wire is individually welded throughout the mesh panel.

Wire Mesh Industries is the only welded mesh business able to manufacture 358 or prison mesh in commercial widths and commercial quantities in Australia. Its unique configuration makes it ideal for applications such as correctional, military, energy, airport and other sensitive site perimeter fencing.
