Galvanized Before Welded Wire Mesh, 16 gauge

Welded wire mesh and fence that is Galvanized Before Weld (GBW) is economical and ideal for many uses. The wires used in the manufacturing process are galvanized before they are welded into a variety of mesh sizes. Different gauge wires are used. The gauge and mesh sizes are determined by the final use of the product. Smaller meshes made with lighter gauge wires are ideal for making cages for small animals. The heavier gauges and meshes with larger openings make good fences.

CAGE QUALITY: The smooth finish and the flatness of the mesh keep animals safe. The mesh openings remain consistent throughout the entire roll due to the cage quality designation.

See our blog article for information about wire gauges.

Additional, less standard specifications are also available. Contact us for further information.
