Diamond Mesh Fencing and Other Types and Styles

Whether you are a homeowner or farmer, there is one thing we all have in common, the need for a fence or wall to protect our properties. When the option of a wall or palisade fence is out of the question, you need to consider the versatile, economical and popular option of diamond mesh fencing. Essentially, wire fencing fulfils huge roles in both rural and urban life. Its purposes are agricultural and industrial, being both aesthetic and necessary.

When it comes to deciding on a wire fence, there are different types available, each having various benefits.    diamond mesh fencing

Woven Wire Fencing

Woven wire mesh is a series of metal wires interlocked according to a certain pattern to create a mesh sheet with a specific opening size, weave pattern and wire diameter. It is easy to customise during the weaving process due to its flexibility.

Following a basic diamond pattern, plain wire fencing has an over-and-under interlacing warp and fill wire weave. Lock crimp diamond wire mesh follows the same weave design but with a twist. The over wire forms a lock by squeezing around the underwire at each intersection, ensuring the fencing becomes more solid and sturdy as a result. The intercrimp diamond wire mesh builds on the locking system with an added bump in between the intersections. The intercrimps not only make the fence sturdy, but it is more visually appealing.

A diamond wire fence is perfect for farming to close off large pastures, construct chicken coups and as a cost-effective perimeter fence in residential areas. When it comes to affordability, versatility, aesthetics and quick installation, diamond wire with its choice of weave patterns, makes the perfect fence.

Welded Wire Fencing

Welded wire mesh is formed by placing wires in horizontal and vertical configurations that form squares or rectangles which are welded together at each contact point. The distance between the angular patterns can be between 2.5 and 10 cm, depending on the amount of visibility required. There is no flexibility in the wire openings, making it more solid than its woven counterpart. Welded wire mesh can be PVC powder-coated, galvanised or stainless steel. Welded wire is widely used as perimeter fencing in the construction industry and as a separation fence. For added security, barbed or razor wire fencing can be installed on top of a woven and welded wire fence.
