All You Need To Know About
Welded Wire Panels
Welded wire panels, welded wire fabric, welded wire mesh, and weldmesh. Yes, it goes by many names. Well, I would like to give you what the Wikipedia says about it. “Welded Wire Panel is an electric fusion welded prefabricated joined grid consisting of a series of parallel longitudinal wires with accurate spacing welded to cross wires at the required spacing.” . Manufacturers use machines to create them perfectly. Yes, you can use them as alternatives to balustrade panel too. Can you tell me a place you will see Welded Wire Panels? Yes, in a zoo you will see them (used for animals enclosures.) Now, what can you understand by it? You can’t use a panel that you can use for bird enclosure for dangerous animals such as lions and tigers. Which means they should come in many finishes, gauges, and configurations. Also, for decking purposes, you can buy them in different varieties.
A variety of gauges: As I said above, depending on the application, you should choose the right Welded Wire Panel. Below is a list of its applications:
* Bird sanctuaries.
* Concrete reinforcement.
* Dog kennels.
* Cat runs.
* Stairwell railings.
* Machine guards.
* Enclosures/Animal enclosures.
Some Welded Wire Panels come as a roll (of thin wires, usually.) Panels come as framed and unframed types. Framed ones are expensive than unframed ones. Of course, materials used for panels are rust-proof. Vinyl coated and stainless steel panels are ideal for decking purposes. You can buy a roll, then cut and flattened depending on your need.
Panels vs rolls: Panels are easy to install and made depending on the customer’s need. No need to cut, so one or two people can easily install them. If you want to remodel the deck in your home, Welded Wire Panels should be your first choice.
Well, we can’t ignore the advantages of roll-types for big jobs. For example, if you have to cover a larger linear footage, then rolls should be your first choice. As you can see in the picture, using panels isn’t practical in such applications. The Welded Wire Panel shown in the picture comes as a roll. Anyway, you need professional installers to fix it. It’s like you are installing a fence. You need other materials such as posts, pliers, rings, and so on. Widely used for farming, fencing, and agriculture.
As I mentioned above, you can use them for many applications. I would like to talk a bit about concrete reinforcement. Using Welded Wire Panels for concrete reinforcement saves time. Before the panels were introduced, constructors had to make the mesh themselves. It was time-consuming. But now you have ready-made panels. They are more practical, strong, neat, cheap, and save time too.
Also, I would like to talk a bit about installing roll-types. Depending on the thickness of the wire, you have to apply the correct tension. If not, the mesh will be sagged.
OK, lastly, what I can say is this: Roll type and panel types come with advantages and disadvantages. If you are not sure about the type you need, then get advice from a professional.
