Mesh Fencing is fencing made from strong steel wire either galvanized or stainless steel. It is most often used as a perimeter fence for industrial or commercial purposes. This type of fencing provides a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, and will provide privacy, security and durability; it is cost effective and more attractive than the typical alternatives. Mesh is normally intended as general boundary fencing. It can also be used in rural areas to contain wildlife and even at small zoos for enclosures of animals such as monkeys, rabbits and birds etc. Some are designed with roll top and roll bottom, and this is considered to be user friendly, and also add safety and extra rigidity.
Mesh fencing is available in many different types, sizes and styles to suit many different applications. Some of the types available can include:

More attractive mesh fencing is available in the form of plastic mesh. This mesh is often coloured, and green is very commonly used for the aesthetic look and fits in more naturally in rural surroundings.
Insect and fly screen mesh is extremely fine mesh with very small holes. It is generally manufactured from plastic, aluminium or stainless steel. This type of mesh can be used for large or small openings to prevent the intrusion of unwanted pests such as insects and flies or even small animals such as mice and rats.
Another type of mesh can be found in the form of monofilament netting. This is ideal for the protection of crops and plants against birds and other predators. It can also be used for fruit cages and to cover ponds to protect fish from predators such as cats or herons, as well as being effective for keeping out leaves.
