How to Join Two Welded Mesh Panels

Hello everyone, we are Fenceshop and today we will guide you through the process of joining two pieces of welded mesh. This might be necessary if the roll of mesh ends and we need to continue, or if we need to repair a defect. We will see the most correct and aesthetically pleasing way to do it.

Mesh Preparation

The first thing to do is to straighten the mesh that tends to curl. To do this, simply bend it in the opposite direction with some force by hand, trying to make it as homogeneous as possible. This applies to both the new piece of mesh and the existing one, especially the end of the roll which tends to be more bent.

Mesh Positioning

Once straightened, position the new mesh by aligning it on the wire. We temporarily tie it so it stays in the correct position without having to use our hands. Two simple temporary ties will be sufficient to maintain the upper alignment.

Removing the Spikes

It is crucial to remove the spikes from both sides of the mesh, both new and existing. We cut the tips flush to get a clean result on both sides. This step is crucial for a well-done joint.

Joining Procedure

Now that the mesh is clean, we can proceed with the joining. We use a piece of tie wire about 30-40 centimeters long. We align the meshes of the two pieces, bring them close together, and start tying. Starting from the top, we wrap the wire over, behind, under, and back. This crisscross tie ensures that the mesh does not open and remains aligned.

For the upper meshes, we tie as close to the mesh as possible. We repeat this operation on all the meshes, ensuring that each tie is tight and aligned.

Finishing the Job

Once the joining is complete, the result will be a robust, clean, and visually pleasing mesh. This method is much more elegant compared to overlapping three meshes and tying them loosely. The mesh joined in this way can be pulled without problems, maintaining an optimal aesthetic result.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful. If you have other methods for making joins, as long as it's not overlapping three meshes, let us know. Thank you for following us and remember to subscribe to our channel for more tips and tutorials. Happy working everyone!
