Galvanized Chain Link Mesh

Hello everyone, I am Marco from Fenceshop. Today, we want to talk about a fundamental product in the world of fences: the galvanized chain link mesh. This type of mesh is considered the base of all meshes, an ancestor, due to its structure and the fact that it is galvanized. Its chain link mesh structure is one of the earliest forms of mesh to exist, and the fact that it is galvanized makes it particularly durable.

Technical Characteristics

There is a wide variety of galvanized chain link meshes, which differ in wire diameter, mesh size, and type of galvanization. Today we focus on a specific type:

  • Name: Galvanized Grid
  • Manufacturer: Cavatorta
  • Wire Diameter: 2 mm
  • Mesh Size: 50x50 mm
  • Type of Galvanization: hot-dip
  • Galvanization Thickness: 11 microns
  • Format: rolls of 25 meters
  • Available Heights: 1 m, 1.20 m, 1.50 m, 1.75 m, and 2 m
Uses of the Mesh

This mesh is mainly used in agricultural, industrial, and forestry settings. It is less common in residential contexts. Its robustness and durability make it ideal for these specific sectors.


Regarding the installation, we have already made a detailed video tutorial which we invite you to watch. However, we can summarize by saying that on a difficulty scale from 1 to 5, we place it at level 2 or 3. The galvanization makes the mesh slightly more rigid compared to a plastic-coated chain link mesh, which can be an advantage in terms of sturdiness but requires a bit more attention during handling.


An interesting aspect of this mesh is its presence in American films. In the USA, it is common to see this type of mesh in basketball courts, especially in neighborhoods like the Bronx. The posts used are generally galvanized pipes with joints functioning as railings. This mesh is also very popular in residential fences in the United States.

A subscriber to our channel, who has visited the United States, sent us photos of fences made with this mesh. Even though it is less common in Italy, it is still appreciated for its robustness and durability.


We invite you to visit our website to see the works done with this mesh and our e-commerce where you will find the Galvanized Grid. We hope that this information has been useful to you. Leave your comments and share your experiences with us. See you in the next video, goodbye and good work!
