Each roll measures 400mm x 10 metres, which is smaller than the standard 2ft (600mm), 3ft (900mm) and 4ft (1200mm) rolls. Smaller roll sizes are easier to store and take up less space in your garage, shed or basement.

Galvanised steel chicken wire is an economical and durable solution for many applications, and its zinc coating adds an extra layer of protection to ensure that it will last for years to come.

Green PVC vs Galvanised Chicken Wire
Both Green PVC and galvanised steel chicken wire widely used for various applications such as garden and farm fencing, aviaries, pet enclosures, and hardware cloth.
Galvanised steel chicken wire is made of thin, flexible steel wires woven into a hexagonal pattern. The steel is coated with zinc, providing protection against rust and corrosion. Galvanised steel chicken wire is an economical and durable solution for outdoor use.
Green PVC coated chicken wire is similar to galvanised steel chicken wire but with an additional layer of green PVC coating over the steel. This coating provides an extra layer of protection against weathering, enhances its appearance, and makes it less noticeable in natural surroundings. However, it is also less durable than galvanised steel chicken wire.
In conclusion, the choice between green PVC and galvanised steel chicken wire depends on the specific application and individual needs. Galvanised steel chicken wire is more durable and suitable for outdoor use, while green PVC coated chicken wire provides extra protection against weathering and a more attractive appearance.
Is Galvanised Steel Recyclable?
Yes, galvanised steel chicken wire is recyclable. Galvanised steel is made of steel that has been coated with a thin layer of zinc to prevent rust and corrosion. The steel can be melted down and processed along with other scrap metal to create new steel products.
It’s important to note that the recycling process for galvanised steel may be different from that of uncoated steel, as the zinc coating must be separated from the steel before it can be melted and reformed. This process is called de-zincification and is typically done by recycling facilities.
By recycling galvanised steel chicken wire, resources can be conserved and the environment can be protected from the negative impacts of mining and refining new raw materials.
How About Green PVC?
Yes, green PVC coated steel chicken wire is recyclable. Steel is a recyclable material and the green PVC coating can be separated from the steel during the recycling process.
However, the recyclability of green PVC coated steel chicken wire may depend on the specific recycling facility and the type of PVC used. Some types of PVC can release harmful chemicals when melted, making it difficult to recycle. It’s best to check with your local recycling centre to see if they accept green PVC coated steel products and to follow their guidelines for proper recycling.
