Turtle or tortoise fence can be made with a number of different types of wire mesh. Selection of the proper mesh is dependent upon such things as:
- local environment
- local code requirements
- aesthetic considerations
- desired longevity of the fence
- species of turtles needing to be enclosed or excluded
16 gauge, 1"x2" mesh, 36"x100' rolls of Galvanized After Weld (GAW) wire is a popular choice and is perhaps the most widely used specification. The mesh is strong, the openings are small enough, and the superior quality of galvanized after guarantees years of use in a wide variety of environments. Other gauges and mesh sizes can also be used effectively.
Galvanized Before Weld (GBW) wire mesh can also be used when moisture and corrosion are not a factor.
Vinyl Coated (VC) meshes are another good choice. The PVC coating has multiple benefits including tough protection from the environment and a more attractive appearance. If you want the fence to blend with the surroundings, becoming almost invisible, use a black fence.
