There are many different types of wire fence to compare – welded wire fence, hardware cloth, woven wire fence – PVC coated or plain galvanized silver. There isn’t one specific best wire fence for all projects or applications.
In general, most wire fence customers end up selecting these fence rolls (most popular):
- Our 1x1 black PVC coated hot dip galvanized welded wire fence. This type of fencing is a great all around fence to keep most animals in or out. It’s strong, not very visible, long lasting and is easy to work with. It has a nice square shape and is typically used for gardens or as a backyard fence. With a one inch opening size it will keep out most animals. This 1x1 is very popular as a bottom wire chew barrier on top of our poly deer fencing.
- Our 2x2 or 2x4 black PVC coated hot dip galvanized welded wire fence. This type of fencing is a great fence to contain or exclude large animals. For example, to keep in dogs or to keep out deer. It’s thicker and stronger than our 1x1 but won’t keep out smaller animals like rabbits.
- Our 1/2x1/2 or 1/4x1/4 black PVC coated hot dip galvanized welded wire fence. This is often referred to has hardware cloth and is used by customers building areas to keep chickens in or building chicken coops. It’s used to keep snakes out as well as other predators.
