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.

¼" x ¼" mesh, 23 gauge galvanized after weld (GAW) mesh, also known as hardware cloth, will last a long time. After the 23 gauge wire is welded into a ¼" x ¼" mesh, it is dipped into a bath of molten zinc. The entire mesh, including the welded areas, is thoroughly sealed and protected against rust and corrosion. This material is lighter in weight and has smaller openings than the ½" x ½" mesh. Particularly useful as a barrier to exclude nuisance animals likes gophers and rodents from an area or any applications where a light wire cloth mesh with rust prevention and long life are desired. Woven wire cloth mesh is a special order item, subject to availability.
