Our 40mm hole Extra Heavy duty wire netting has a 1.4mm thick wire, which is nearly double the thickness of ordinary chicken wire netting. Whilst traditional chicken wire netting would not be suitable for fox protection, this product has been specifically manufactured to keep foxes out. The wire is thick enough to prevent foxes from chewing through, and the fact that the netting is woven means that there are no welds that can be broken on the mesh.

Our wire netting has a hexagonal hole, and is woven from hot dipped galvanized steel wire. All of our wire netting is sourced from high quality manufacturers.


  • Material: Mild Steel.

  • Finish: Galvanized.

  • Hole size: 40mm (1.6 inch).

  • Wire thickness: 17 gauge (1.4mm).

  • Weight per square metre: Approx. 860 grams.

  • Roll Heights: The heights of the rolls are manufactured to metric measurements. We have rounded up the imperial height conversions for simplicity. The accurate heights are as follows: 1200mm (47.2 inch) high; 1800mm (70.9 inch) high.

All measurements +/- 10%. If you require a micrometer reading of the wire thickness then please call us on 01782 820 970.

Name* Product Question*

Please advise if your chicken mesh is galvanised after twisting or pre-galvanised?


Thank you for your enquiry.

The netting is made from hot-dip galvanized wire which is galvanized before weaving.


I will only require a 10m roll of this product, can you provide this?

I'm building a small chicken coop on an allotment and would like to buy as cheaply as possible.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Unfortunately, we only supply the roll lengths available on the website i.e. 30m roll for the 1220mm wide netting, and 20m roll for the 1830mm wide netting.

As an alternative, we also offer some 12.5m rolls in our welded 14 gauge wire mesh which also offers excellent fox protection.

I wondered length per length which is heavier, your fox-proof wire netting or the welded mesh?

Thank you for your e-mail.

The fox proof wire netting (40mm hole, 1.4mm thick wire) will be lighter than the welded mesh. We have had this netting specially made with foxes in mind, and the 1.4mm wire is too thick for the foxes to chew through.

The 14 gauge welded mesh is also an excellent product for fox protection (this has a 2mm thick wire). Either option should be suitable for your application.


I am after a roll of netting for my Dodgem track. I should imagine that you've sold products for this use before, its probably a medium gauge net, galvanised, please advise.

Thank You

Thank you for the enquiry.

Although we don’t have any experience in advising customers on what to use for dodgem tracks (as we don’t have specific expertise in this area), we have supplied mesh to customers for this purpose.

The product that previous customers have used for dodgems is our heavy duty wire netting. The specifications of the wire netting are as follows:

40mm hexagonal hole galvanized heavy chicken wire netting (1.4mm thick wire).

The netting is available in either a 1200mm x 25m roll or an 1800mm x 20m roll.
