Chicken wire is also known by the name of poultry netting or Hexagonal Wire ,
is a wire mesh commonly used to fence poultry livestock. It is made
of thin, flexible galvanized wire, with hexagonal gaps. Available
in 1 inch diameter, 2 inch and 1/2 inch, chicken wire is available
in various wire gauges usually 19 gauge to 22 gauge. Chicken wire
is used to build spacious yet inexpensive cages for small animals.
Material: Chicken wire is designed in Low carbon steel wire, stainless steel wire, PVC
wire(galvanized or not before coating), electro/ hot-dip galvanized
wire, even brass wire and Al-alloy wire.
Although the original purpose of chicken wire is for fencing
chicken, it has now found more applications in various fields. It
can be used to reinforce concrete. What's more, it is used by some
artists to create sculptures. A more widespread use for chicken
wire in landscaping is in organic pest control measures. Usually
chicken wire is used as fencing to encircle a garden area, thus
keeping the pests out.
Electro galvanized chicken wire is usually made of high-quality low
carbon steel wire, or galvanized wire. There are two types of
weaving process, namely, galvanizing before weaving and galvanizing
after weaving; and three weaving patterns are available, including
straight twist, reverse twist, and double twist. Usually the
standard roll length of electro galvanized chicken wire is 50m.
Hot-dipped galvanized chicken wire offers excellent corrosion
resistance property and oxidation resistance. Moreover, it has a
long service life. It serves well as strengthening, protection and
thermal insulation materials in the form of mesh container, gabion
basket, containment wall or poultry fence in construction,
petroleum, chemical industry, breeding, food processing, and
