PVC-coated wire mesh panels are made from hot-dipped galvanised steel that has been coated with protective black plastic to help the steel resist corrosion and rust. This makes the wire panel safe and secure for use around animals and children, as the PVC-coating smooths over any potentially sharp edges of the metal.
Available in a wide range of sizes, apertures and thicknesses, these wire mesh panels are highly versatile making them a popular choice for gardens, allotments or construction sites. Typical uses for wire mesh panels include:
All our wire mesh panels are hot-dipped galvanised, which is where the steel is immersed in a protective coating to help the steel resist corrosion and rust.
With our PVC-coated wire mesh panels, the wire is galvanised before welding and then coated with protective black plastic. This helps to protect the wire from the elements and smooths over any potentially sharp bits of metal.
N.B: Any cuts made into the steel may rust where the new metal is exposed. Please ensure to protect these cut ends with galvanised spray or paint to ensure the longevity of the wire fence panel.
What is PVC coated wire?
PVC-coated wire mesh is made from galvanised steel that has been coated with an additional green plastic layer. This PVC coating both improves the aesthetic of the wire and smooths the sharp metal edges to make the panels suitable for use around children and animals.
Is PVC mesh waterproof?
Yes. Our PVC-coated wire mesh panels are rot, UV and water-resistant.
Which is better galvanised or plastic-coated wire mesh?
Whilst it generally comes down to personal preference, PVC-coated wire does benefit from an additional layer of protection on the wire to increase its resistance to rust.
