Robust Chain Link Mesh: Let's Not Call It "Chicken Wire"

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, the e-commerce specializing in fences. We are used to knowing chain link meshes as "chicken wire," but is it really so? This video aims to inform you about the world of chain link mesh and debunk some common myths.

Normally, when we think of chain link mesh, we imagine those with wire diameters of 2.2, 2.5, or 2.8 millimeters. However, there is a range of meshes with larger wire diameters, less known but with enormous advantages. On the market, we can find meshes with wire diameters of 3.2, 3.5, 4, and even 4.2 millimeters. These meshes are produced by a craftsman we have been collaborating with for years, who has the flexibility to create different wire diameters, unlike large companies that are bound by production standards.

Advantages of Robust Chain Link Mesh

These meshes offer numerous advantages, especially for specific uses:

  • Sports facilities: A mesh with a robust wire diameter is ideal for absorbing the stress of the ball and players, maintaining the necessary flexibility to absorb impacts. This makes it perfect for five-a-side soccer fields, where the stress is particularly strong.
  • Wild boar protection: On steep terrains, where it is difficult to install other solutions, a robust chain link mesh is effective in preventing wild boar intrusions.
  • Large dogs: For those who have problems with dogs that dig or bite the mesh, a robust mesh is the ideal solution, especially in steep areas.
  • Visual and technical robustness: For those seeking a robust fence both visually and technically, these meshes are an excellent choice. They are more expensive but offer a greater amount of material and superior resistance.
Myths to Debunk About Chain Link Mesh

There are some common myths about chain link mesh that we want to debunk:

  • Chicken wire: It is not true that they are only chicken wire. There are meshes with smaller diameters used for chicken coops, but robust chain link meshes are another story.
  • Snagging: Although it is true that these meshes can snag, those with robust wires tend to snag much less and are easier to work with.
  • Poor quality mesh: It is not true that they are poor quality meshes. Those with robust diameters are more expensive and offer a greater amount of material, so there is nothing poor about them.

Do not underestimate robust chain link meshes. They are a world within the world of chain link mesh, with specific applications and significant advantages. If you need to do certain types of work, like those listed, seriously consider them. You can find these meshes on our e-commerce Fenceshop, where they are available in various diameters: 2.5, 2.8, 3.2, 3.5, 4, and 4.2 millimeters.
