Protect Your Property with Double Wire Metal Fence

Welded double wire metal fence is also known as twin wire mesh fencing, 2D security fence, and 868, 656 fence. It features two horizontal wires welded apart to both sides of a vertical wire. This special design makes the fence structure extraordinarily firm than normal metal fences like BRC fences, Euro fences, etc. The double wire fencing is quite popular in European countries, especially Germany.

Looking from far away, the double wire fence panels are no different from regular ones which are just metal fences welded from horizontal and vertical wires. But when getting close, you will notice twin horizontal wires welded to one vertical wire, one at each side.

For a general double wire metal fence, the wire diameter of the horizontal wire is 6 or 8 mm, while the vertical wire is 5 or 6 mm. That’s why you may see some expressions for the double wire mesh fence as 868 or 656 fence. The names are generated from the wire diameters in a horizontal-vertical-horizontal order.

Double Wire Metal Fence Horizontal Wire Styles

Apart from the difference in wire diameters, the layout of horizontal wires also makes double wire fencing different. Normally speaking, when we say double wire fence we mean two metal wires in each of the horizontal lines. That’s a common, strong, and also a little costly type. But if you are troubled by a limited budget, the other type of double metal fencing may be suitable for you, which is welded with double horizontal wires every three horizontal lines.

Look at the photos below, you will know what I’m talking about.

Double Wire Metal Fence Specifications


Generally, the mesh size for the twin-wire welded mesh fence is 200mm x 50mm. Double horizontal wires at each intersection give a rigid and flat profile to the mesh fencing system. Depending on the height of mesh panels and the application site, vertical wires at 5 or 6 mm and horizontal wires at 6 or 8mm are provided.

The height of the welded double wire fence can be from 1.0 m up to 2.4 m, with the finish galvanized and polyester coated in a range of standard RAL colors. The special treatment will make the fence panels not only strong and stable but also difficult to cut through. The twin wire mesh fencing system is one of the comprehensive, cost effective security fencing systems in the world today.



Double wire mesh fence panels are installed to high-strength steel posts. The common posts of the double wire mesh fence include SHS tube, RHS tube, Peach-post round pipe, and Special-shaped post. Panels are fixed to steel posts by sturdy clamps and secured with pin hex security screws, with no visible fixings on the back of posts.
