Galvanized Before Weaving (GBW)
In this process, the wire is pre-galvanized before it is formed into a fabric. The weaving process creates an exposed cut end that will lack coating and be more apt to some minor rust in wet and severe weather conditions.
Galvanized After Weaving (GAW)
This process forms or weaves chain-link into a fabric first, and then soaks it in a large galvanized bath which adheres the zinc coating. This ensures that all the wire is coated, even the cut ends created during the weaving process.
Aluminum coated steel chain link fence fabric is made by cold drawing good commercial grade steel rod into wire of the appropriate diameter. The steel rod from which the wire is drawn is produced by the open hearth, electric furnace or basic oxygen process. The coating process consists of passing the cleaned wire through a molten bath of aluminum metal.
Selvage describes how the ends of the chain link wires are finished for the top and bottom of the fabric. Knuckle means that the ends of the wires are folded over each other. Twist means the wires are twisted together to form pointed prongs.
Mesh Sizes Available
Residential fabric uses larger mesh sizes and smaller gauges, and commercial/industrial uses smaller mesh sizes and larger gauge diameters. The smallest mesh sizes, from 1-1/4” to 3/8”, are High Security/Mini-Mesh.
