Galvanized Chain Mesh Wire


Galvanized Chain Mesh Wire

InfraBuild Wire's Galvanized Chain Mesh Wire has been specifically developed to suit the majority of chain mesh machines. Its consistently high quality enables manufacturers to achieve improved machine efficiencies.

InfraBuild Steel's Galvanized and LifeMax® Wires are made to AS/NZS 4534 – ed Steel Wire Fencing Products for Terrestrial, Aquatic and General Use.

Our wire is woven into chain mesh fences that are widely used for industrial security, tennis courts, parks, safety fences on freeways, domestic and industrial fencing, etc.

Galvanized and LifeMax® Chain Mesh Specifications

InfraBuild Steel's Galvanized and LifeMax® Wires are made to AS/NZS 4534 – Zinc and zinc/ aluminium-alloy Coatings on Steel Wire and are offered in coating classes W02 through W25 in a range of diameters.

Heavily Galvanized and LifeMax Wires also comply with AS1725.1 – Chainlink Fabric Fencing - Part 1: Security Fences and Gates.

As galvanized wire is classified according to the amount of zinc coating, the following table outlines the difference between Standard Galvanized, Heavy Galvanized and LifeMax ® zinc/aluminium coated wire.
