Galvanised Steel Chickenwire Mesh
25mm galvanised chickenwire refers to a type of wire mesh that is used for various purposes, including making fences for chickens or other poultry. The wire has a diameter of 25mm and is coated with a layer of galvanised material, which helps to prevent rust and corrosion, thus providing long-lasting protection for the wire. This coating helps to protect the wire from rust and corrosion, making it a durable and long-lasting material for use in chicken fencing and other applications. The mesh pattern of the wire allows for easy installation and provides a secure barrier for poultry and other small animals.
Green PVC coated poultry netting is another extremely popular garden mesh product. The addition of the coating provides protection against rust and corrosion, making it suitable for outdoor use in garden and farm fencing, as well as other applications such as aviaries, pet enclosures, and hardware cloth. The wire mesh itself is made of thin, flexible metal wires that are woven into a hexagonal pattern, providing strength and versatility while also allowing for easy cutting and shaping.

FAQs For This Product
Is Chicken Wire Fox Proof?
Chickenwire is not considered fox proof. Foxes are intelligent and agile predators that can easily climb over or dig under chickenwire fences. The small holes in the wire mesh can also provide opportunities for foxes to reach through and attack livestock or pets inside.
If you need to protect livestock, pets, or other animals from foxes, it’s recommended to use a stronger and more secure type of fencing, such as chain-link or welded wire mesh. These types of fencing have smaller holes and are more difficult for foxes to climb over or dig under. It’s also important to bury the fencing at least 30 cm (12 inches) underground to prevent foxes from digging under it.
In addition to using proper fencing, it’s also important to secure any potential food sources, such as bird feeders or pet food, and to remove any shelter or hiding places near the enclosure to discourage foxes from approaching.
What Is The Strongest Chicken Wire?
The strength of chickenwire is determined by several factors, including its gauge, wire diameter, and mesh size. Generally, chickenwire with a smaller gauge number, larger wire diameter, and smaller mesh size is considered to be stronger.
- Heavy Duty: This type has a smaller gauge number and larger wire diameter, making it the strongest option for fencing and other heavy-duty applications. We like to recommend our 13mm hole mesh for this, as there are two openings per inch. Consequently, the additional wire needed to weave the extra hole gives a lot of additional strength and structure.
- PVC Coated: This has a plastic coating that provides added strength and protection against rust and corrosion.
- Stainless steel: This s made from high-quality stainless steel, making it highly resistant to rust and corrosion. It is also stronger than traditional galvanised chickenwire.
It is important to choose the right type of chickenwire for your specific needs, as some applications may require a stronger and more durable material, while others may not. Consulting with a specialist or expert can help you determine the best type of chickenwire for your project.
What Tools Will I Need?
