Welded wire mesh is a form of prefabricated grid or cladding used in different applications. It’s a metal wire screen composed of low carbon steel wire or stainless-steel wire. Many types of coating can be applied for added features such as corrosion resistance. Machines are used to create welded wire mesh to the highest level of precision possible.
Weldmesh specifically refers to a type of barrier fencing where the panels are spot welded at each intersection. It is commonly used for fencing for security purposes in agricultural and industrial properties. Welded wire mesh can also be seen in mines, machine protection, and gardening.
The type of fencing you install determines the quality of security that you can expect. A simple fence may not be enough. Weldmesh, or welded mesh panel fencing, is a top of the line security option that gives you the confidence you need.
The best thing about welded wire fencing is that it can be bought in various thicknesses as per your needs. The fence can be set at any elevation, based on the purpose of the fence. It can be constructed 40 feet high and made impenetrable by humans in addition to wildlife and is deployed in several inner-city applications for property safety.
Durable and Safe Design
The primary advantage of this kind of security fencing is that it boasts a very sturdy, safe design. The manner it is installed and constructed means that it is difficult for potential intruders to ascend or smash up. It will also be sturdy enough to stand up to the weather and other practical considerations for instance balls hitting it if installed in a school or playground.
The initial thing that people will see initially about welded wire fencing is its complicated construction. The interweaving bars and bands throughout the panels make it look like a fortress wall. Huge immobile construction sites may position this kind of material, as it is very powerful and necessitates little maintenance. The panels are curved together on a fuse that will not crack or break over time if constructed in the right manner. This kind of fence is an exclusive long-term investment and is not really for domestic use.
Easy to Install
Welded mesh fencing installation benefits are that it can be erected on any surface easily and quickly. This certainly means it is extremely adaptable and is ideal for several uses where security fencing might be required. It also comes in handy if you require the fencing to be placed in a comparatively short space of time!
Maintaining Influences of Extreme Force
As this kind of fence necessitates professional or well educated personnel to install, welded wire fencing can actually take front-on impacts devoid of showing signs of damage. This kind of fence can take influences from vehicles, large animals, and any other huge body impact without taking the harm found in conventional fencing. This kind of fencing is very costly to install, as it will last a life span with smallest repair and maintenance.
Use Weldmesh For Greater Security
Weldmesh fencing is a top choice for boundary security, high security, and some sports fencing needs. Whether you’re managing an industrial or commercial complex, a school, or a storage facility, you’ll find that weldmesh fencing works great for you. Prison fencing and high-security fencing comes under a great deal of scrutiny in Europe (and the rest of the world, for that matter). While most high-security fencing on the market is designed with the best intentions, not everyone is able to provide a higher level of security needed, especially in maximum security settings. Of course, welded mesh fencing outshines the rest, and we’re not just saying that because we sell it!
• Prison mesh fencing is extremely durable and highly resistant to cutting with standard tools. This acts as a deterrent to those trying to gain access into or out of the prison or high-security area.
• The mesh spacing is minimal, which makes it extremely difficult to climb. Someone attempting to climb the fence would struggle to get a toe or finger hold/grip.
• Welded mesh fencing is designed and manufactured to withstand long-term exposure to the elements. This means that it won’t rust or suffer premature wear and tear. Powder coating is often an option that can help with protecting the fencing and giving it a durable finish.
• Welded mesh fencing can be installed on hard or soft ground (bolt-down or dig-in posts are used), which means that the location won’t affect the success of the fence installation.
High-Security Weld Mesh system is dominantly used in fencing systems designed to bring maximum perimeter protection to a site without impeding visibility. The anti-climb fence has been 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.
Bharat Wire supplies high security fence systems with strong and durable surface coatings. Zinc rich epoxy, Polyester powder, and Thermoplastic coatings are some of the available options. To further increase the corrosion resistance of the system, panels can be made out of heavy galvanized wire, or zinc-alum wire. The design of the high security fence system is such that, system requires no fabrication work on the site, and it is a complete assembly job, which ensures that factory finish is maintained, while installation.
Bharat Wire has designed this high security fencing system in such a way that minimal components are required to erect the system, and it is a completely modular system. Installation is simple and user friendly. The design allows fast and accurate installation. Some of the typical ways of fitting this system are shown in drawings below.
High security Fencing is widely used for its strength, appearance and anti-climb/anti-attack profile. Created from 4mm galvanized/zinc-alum wire, the finger proof mesh format is produced by electrical resistance welding at each intersection. The mesh opening of approximately 8mm x 70mm, makes it extremely difficult to penetrate using conventional hand tools presenting a higher delay factor greater than that of other fencing products. Tamper proof fixings assure that panels cannot be removed from the attack side. For non-military applications, that is for industrial and commercial properties, Bharat Wire has designed special posts and done profiling on the panels to reduce the amount of steel as compared to systems used in highest security zones.
The anti-climb mesh panel is made of galvanized steel wire (and can then be optionally polyester powder and/or Epoxy coated) in an aperture configuration of 76.2 mm x 12.7 mm. This means a clear opening between horizontal wires of less than 9 mm – inadequate 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 anti-climb fence 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 link fence.
The closeness of the horizontal wires in this Anti-climb fence also makes for a mesh panel almost impossible to grip, thus climbing not possible, when used as part of a fencing system, and thus the name “Anti-climb “.
The mesh apertures are finger/toe proof and are designed such as to give excellent visibility through the mesh, both from the perpendicular 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 as every intersection of every wire is individually welded throughout the mesh panel. Its unique configuration makes it ideal for applications such as military, energy, airport, schools and other sensitive site’s perimeter fencing.
