This type of mesh production is continuous. To form panels, the mesh is guillotined across the weave and the cut ends of the wire are wrapped around a heavier wire to form a selvedge end.
This type of mesh is flexible as it can articulate about the twists. It is normally manufactured from a 2.7mm wire diameter for gabions or 2.0mm wire diameter for mattresses. Wire coatings are either galvanised or Galfan coated. For more aggressive environments, an additional organic polymer powder (PVC) coating should be applied to a Galfan coated base wire.
