A Fence that Lasts a Long Time
When you want fencing to last a long time, choose vinyl-coated fencing.  There are many options of vinyl-coated welded wire mesh fencing available to you that are long-lasting. In this blog post, I'll cover all the basics you'll need in choosing the vinyl coated fence that's right for you.
Tightly Bonded
Vinyl-coated wire mesh and fencing is the longest-lasting mesh you can buy. There are welded as well as woven meshes available. After the mesh is welded or woven, it passes through the coating process. The PVC is tightly bonded to the wire by a heat process. The mesh is completely covered, including those areas most likely to rust first - the spots that are welded or woven.
The vinyl coating is impervious to moisture and corrosives. The wire is thoroughly protected from rust and corrosion. Standard colors are black and green while other colors are available by special order.

Tip: Black vinyl-coated mesh fencing is more likely to blend into natural environments.

Temperature Extremes--not a problem

A high-quality vinyl coating is flexible and will not crack when bent. It gives the mesh a smooth finished look. There are no sharp edges. The PVC is not affected by extreme hot or cold temperatures. It is so well bonded to the wire that it stands up to scrapes and abrasions.

Coated meshes are tough, long-lasting, weather and chemical resistant, and attractive. Any mesh or fence that is vinyl coated will have the longest lifetime. Some meshes are available with double protection - GAW wire that is galvanized after being welded or woven and then covered with a thick layer of vinyl.
