Galvanised Steel Rabbit Netting Mesh
31mm galvanised steel rabbit netting mesh fence is one of the most popular types of garden mesh. We keep our stock volumes high, meaning that it is available for immediate dispatch off the shelf.
Our rabbit netting is designed with a hexagonal hole of 31mm spacing, which is an optimal size for deterring rabbits. We supply the netting in rolls measuring 50 metres in length and 1050mm in width, aligning with the industry’s standard dimensions for an effective rabbit-proof barrier.
For the most effective setup, we suggest anchoring with a 2mm or 2.5mm line wire at both the fence’s top and bottom. The recommended spacing for posts is approximately 2.5m apart. To further safeguard against burrowing attempts, it’s beneficial to embed about 150mm of the netting to a depth of 50mm. This should be set at a right angle to the fence, resulting in an “L” configuration facing the rabbit’s potential direction, creating a formidable barrier against any digging efforts.

FAQs For This Product
How Deep Should I Bury The Netting To Prevent Rabbits From Burrowing Under?
To effectively prevent rabbits from burrowing under, you should bury the netting approximately 150mm deep, with a portion of it set at a right angle to the fence, creating an “L” configuration. This “L” shape should face the potential direction of the rabbits. The netting’s robust mild steel material, complemented by either Pre-Weave Hot-Dipped Galvanising or Post-Weave Superior Hot-Dipping, ensures durability. Our netting features 31mm hexagonal holes and is available in two wire gauges: 19 gauge (1mm) and 18.5 gauge (1.1mm). With weights per square meter of roughly 440 grams for the 19-gauge and about 550 grams for the 18.5 gauge, this netting is designed to stay firmly in place. Each roll is 50 metres long and 1050mm high, catering to diverse fencing needs.
Is The Netting Resistant To Rust And Other Environmental Factors?
Yes, the netting is crafted from mild steel, renowned for its resilience and durability. It undergoes a hot-dipped galvanising process that coats the netting in a protective layer of zinc. This coating offers a robust defense against corrosion and rust, ensuring the netting stands strong against environmental challenges such as rain and humidity. Whether you’re using it for garden protection or animal enclosures, this netting is designed to brave the elements and serve you effectively for years.
How Long Can I Expect The Netting To Last?
A protective hot-dip galvanising process enhances the durability of the mild steel netting, which is designed to withstand environmental challenges. It is possible for the netting to serve you effectively for several years with proper installation and minimal maintenance. The exact lifespan can vary based on specific environmental conditions and usage, but many users find that such galvanised netting easily lasts a decade or more under typical conditions. Performing regular inspections and repairing any damages promptly can extend its lifespan even further.
