Welded wire mesh and fence that is Galvanized After Weld (GAW) is strong and durable. These products are made by dipping previously welded mesh into a bath of molten zinc. The entire fence or mesh, including the welded areas, is thoroughly sealed and protected against rust and corrosion. Because it is covered with so much more zinc than GBW galvanized before welded wire fencing, it will last years longer. GAW welded meshes and fences are available in a wide variety of gauges and mesh sizes. These determine the final use of the product. Smaller meshes made with lighter gauge wires are ideal for making long lasting cages for small animals. The heavier gauges and meshes with larger openings make durable fences for animals. They have many uses around the home.

1/2"x1/2" mesh, 19 gauge galvanized after weld (GAW) wire mesh and fence is also known as hardware cloth. After the 19 gauge wire is welded into a 1/2"x1/2" mesh, it is dipped into a bath of molten zinc. The entire wire cloth mesh, including the welded areas, is thoroughly sealed and protected against rust and corrosion. 19 gauge 1/2"x1/2" mesh will last a long time. This material is lighter in weight and strength than the 16 gauge 1/2"x1/2" mesh and therefore costs less. Particularly useful for small animal enclosures, nuisance animal exclusion - such as rodent or gopher barriers - or other applications where a light mesh, rust prevention and long life are desired. It can be used as a low cost flooring for chukar pens, though we recommend the heavier 16 gauge material. Woven mesh wire cloth is a special order item and is subject to availability.
