Mesh rolls or panels? Which one to choose?

Hello everyone, we are from Fenceshop and today we will guide you in choosing between a welded mesh roll and a rigid fence panel. These two products are often confused, but in reality, they belong to two completely different families of fences. We aim to clarify and offer practical advice to help you find the most suitable model for your needs.

The main differences

Welded mesh rolls are sold in rolls, usually 25 meters long, with relatively compact dimensions. In contrast, modular rigid panels have a fixed length of two meters and are already rigid and ready for use. Both models are made of welded iron wire, but the mesh has wires thin enough to be rolled up, whereas the panels do not.

Panels often feature folds that not only embellish the product but also increase its rigidity. Both models are galvanized and plastic-coated, mainly available in green, while anthracite is more common in panels than in meshes. There are various types of links and wires for each family of products, offering solutions for different contexts, from residential to sports.

How to choose the right fence

The first aspect to consider is the budget. Mesh rolls tend to be less expensive, with prices ranging from 5 euros per meter, while panels can cost between 15 and 20 euros per meter.

The second aspect concerns the installation location. If you need to fence a steep or difficult-to-access area, mesh rolls are the best choice. For flat areas or walls, modular panels are more suitable and easier to install. Panels are ideal for walls thanks to the plates to be bolted, while meshes require T-posts and welded plates.

Aesthetics and robustness are other factors to consider. Panels offer a sturdier and more significant appearance, while meshes are more discreet. Both products can be cut with wire cutters, so safety is relative.

Ease of installation

Installing panels on walls is simpler: just bolt and wedge the post. Meshes, on the other hand, require welding the plates onto T-posts, tensioning the tension wires, and tying the mesh. On steep terrain, meshes are preferable, whereas on flat terrain, both products are suitable.

Transporting the material

Do not forget the bulk of the material. Panels are more cumbersome and require pallet transport, while mesh rolls are easier to load and transport, even in a car with a roof rack.
