Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, and therefore is longer lasting than a galvanized finish mesh. Stainless steel is commonly used in the food industry, but has a wide variety of applications where a higher level of rust resistance is required.
This product is a medium-weight welded wire mesh, which offers more rigidity and strength than a light-weight welded mesh or chicken wire netting. The wire thickness of the mesh is 16 gauge (approx. 1.6mm thick), which makes this a strong mesh for long lasting protection against large birds such as pigeons.
This mesh is available in both Grade 304 and Grade 316 stainless steel. Grade 316 offers a higher level of protection against rusting, and is referred to as "marine grade". The Grade 316 stainless steel should be used for applications requiring greater corrosion protection, in particular where the mesh is to be used in a coastal location.
All measurements +/- 15%. If you require a micrometer reading of the wire thickness then please call us on 01782 820 970.
I would like to build a couple of chicken houses. Instead of having wooden floors I would like to use mesh so that their droppings fall through onto the ground. The mesh would need to be strong enough to support the weight of the chickens when they walk to the perches. Using a piece of wood attached to the walls of the hen house to support the outer edges of the mesh. Can you please advise me on the thickness of the wire needed to meet this requirement.
Thank you for your enquiry.
We would suggest either a 25 x 25 mm hole or a 13 x 13 mm hole 16 gauge in galvanized welded mesh.
Confirmed receipt in good order.
Many thanks for your prompt service.
