Chain Mesh wire
Chain Mesh wire has been specifically developed to suit most types of chain mesh machines. Its high quality enables manufacturers to achieve higher machine efficiencies.
Chain mesh wire is woven into chain mesh fences that are widely used for industrial security, tennis courts, parks, safety fences on freeways, domestic and industrial fencing.
Galvanised Chain Mesh Specifications
Galvanised Wire is made to AS/NZS 4534 "Zinc and zinc/ aluminium-alloy Coatings on Steel Wire"; BS EN 10244.
Given that galvanised wire is classified according to the amount of zinc coating, the following table outlines the difference between standard and heavy galvanised wire.
Minimum Coating Mass (g/m2)
over 1.55mm up to and incl 1.80mm
over 1.80mm up to and incl. 2.24mm
over 2.24mm up to and incl. 2.72mm
over 2.72mm up to and incl. 3.15mm
over 3.15mm up to and incl. 3.55mm
over 3.55mm up to and incl. 4.25mm
over 1.00mm up to and incl. 1.60mm
over 1.60mm up to and incl. 2.50mm
Tensile Strength (MPa)
The tensile strength is defined as the maximum load achieved in a tensile test divided by the cross sectional area of the wire test piece. The tensile strength fro all sizes of Galvanised Chain Mesh is 380 to 500 MPa.
The table below is indicative of steel chemistries used.
