No. There is a significant difference between the many different wire mesh panels that can be found. Nearly all mesh panels are a welded panel made of galvanized rod. The rod used can range from approximately 4 gauge to approximately 6 gauge (roughly 1/4”). Where these mesh panels are welded, the galvanization has been compromised and is prone to rust prematurely. In contrast, the wire mesh we use to build our gates and other products has been hot dipped in galvanization vats after the weld. This added process insures the longest lasting material and is a significant improvement in the quality of the mesh panel.
