Have you ever needed a truly heavy gauge chicken wire?
Does the 20 gauge
Are you frustrated by how quickly GBW hex mesh rusts and needs to be replaced?
There's an alternative:
18 gauge, 1" hexagonal mesh, galv after weave chicken wire fence
Made by Keystone Steel and Wire in Peoria, Illinois, this "saltwater netting" is woven from heavy 18 gauge wire. 18 gauge wire is more than 30% heavier than the 20 gauge chicken wire available in your local retail store. After the wire is woven into a 1" hexagonal mesh, it is passed through a bath of molten zinc. It emerges with a thick, durable rust and corrosion resistant galvanized after weave (GAW) finish. The wires are thoroughly coated, including the twisted areas that tend to hold moisture.
Use this for:
- poultry runs
- garden fence
- game bird pens
- saltwater applications, such as crab pots
18 gauge heavy hex wire is a great option and if you want a chicken wire fence that will withstand the test of time, consider this product.
And the benefits:
Initialhigher cost is offset by the longer lifetime of the wire.
heavierwire will stand up longer to normal wear and tear.
- Frequency of repair and replacement is reduced.
- Heavy galvanization assures robust protection against rust and corrosion.
Have you ever had the opportunity to try GAW chicken wire fence?
Do you think it makes sense to pay more initially to avoid the cost and labor of repair and replacement?
