How to Install a Welded Wire Mesh

Hello everyone, I am Marco from Fenceshop and today we will show you how to install a rigid welded wire mesh. Let's go through all the steps necessary to achieve a perfect fence.

Tools and Materials Needed

Before starting, it is essential to have all the necessary materials:

  • Welded wire mesh
  • Pliers
  • Soft binding wire

If the fence is long, a wire winch might be useful to tension the mesh. We will create a specific video for this in the future.

Mesh Preparation

First of all, it is important to unroll the mesh roll in the correct direction. We recommend unrolling it on the ground and then lifting it. However, due to space constraints, we can also unroll it while standing. The mesh may have end roll tips that need to be cut to leave the vertical wire clean. Use pliers to cut along the vertical wire and clean the mesh.

Initial Fixing

Once cleaned, we can start fixing the mesh to the first post. It is advisable to start from the upper left corner. The main ties should be done with double wire to ensure greater sturdiness. Every other mesh is sufficient. Continue tying the mesh along the post, fixing it definitively with sturdy and double ties.

Unrolling and Intermediate Fixing

Proceed by unrolling the mesh along the length of the fence. It is important to make light ties on the intermediate posts to keep the mesh in position while still allowing it to move during tensioning. Provisionally tie the mesh near the posts with double ties.

Mesh Tension

To tension the mesh, we can pull it manually or use pliers to leverage. It is crucial to tie the wire in tension on the post, ensuring that the mesh remains taut. The ties should always be made with double wire.

Finishing and Final Ties

Once the mesh is tensioned, we can trim the excess meshes. It is important to choose the right wire to cut to avoid compromising the ties. After trimming, we must proceed with the final ties. The main ties should be double and placed close to the posts to ensure greater sturdiness.

Tension Wire Tying

The tension wire ties should be made every three meshes, trying to align the tension wires with the horizontal wires of the mesh. This ensures greater cleanliness and aesthetics of the fence.

Ties on Posts and Braces

It is important to tie the mesh also on intermediate posts and braces. The ties on the posts should be double and made so that the mesh remains in tension in the desired direction. The ties on the braces can be single but must be sufficiently robust to keep the mesh in position.

Final Tips

Finally, to achieve even greater tension, we can slightly bend the horizontal wires of the mesh with pliers. This method allows for further tensioning the mesh. We will create a specific video to better explain this step.

I hope these tips have been helpful for installing a rigid welded wire mesh. If you have any questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to write to us in the comments. Remember to subscribe to our channel and visit our website for more information. See you soon and good work to everyone!
