Stainless Steel & Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh & Hardware Cloth

Welded wire mesh is typically used in applications including fencing, cages, home & garden, security mesh, animal control, and a wide variety of others. It includes stainless steel welded wire cloth for industrial applications as well as galvanized wire mesh or hardware cloth for general purpose use. Welded wire meshes have the wires welded together at all intersections for strength, flexibility, and a consistent opening size.

Galvanized hardware cloth is lightweight and economical. The galvanized zinc coating provides excellent rust and corrosion resistance.

Stainless steel welded mesh is used when rust and corrosion resistance is more critical. It’s also brighter and cleaner, and can be used in a variety of visual applications.

Our welded wire mesh is available in stainless steel, galvanized steel, or plain steel. Opening sizes range from a 1/4″ to 6″, and a variety of gauges or wire diameters are available in each type of alloy.
