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.
