14 gauge, 2"x4" welded mesh, Green Vinyl Coated (VC) mesh and fence - 14 gauge core wire is welded into a strong, smooth mesh, then immersed in a bath of hot zinc resulting in a Galvanized After Weld mesh. The fence is then coated with a thick layer of PVC. The vinyl is tightly bonded to the wire. The coating will not crack when the wire mesh is bent and will resist scraping and abrasion. UV inhibitors retard degradation from sunlight. The vinyl effectively seals the wire from moisture and corrosive elements. And the Galvanized After Weld core wire gives added protection assuring many years of use.This VC mesh and fence is not only attractive, but also will last the longest. It is a first quality product. There are less expensive vinyl coated meshes available. But you get what you pay for. Also available in green.
