Why Is 358 Fence High-Security?

We always tend to seek physical protection when there are potential dangers no matter whether the threats are from the wild or human beings. 358 fence as a welded metal fence with sturdy structures and seemingly unbreakable panels has been increasingly accepted by more countries in the global market. So does 358 mesh fence can bring us a sense of security?

Before we dive further into the question, let’s get to know what 358 fence is.

What is 358 fence?

Simply speaking, 358 fence is a type of metal fence that is welded from sturdy steel wires in a relatively high density. 358 fence is also known as other names in the fence market, like 358 security fence, 358 defense fence, high security fence or prison mesh. You may wonder how is the numeric string 358 connected with security and what exactly 358 stands for.

The opening size of this fence is 3” (long) x 0.5” (high), and the fence panels are manufactured from 8 gauge wires. That’s why it’s called 358 fence. The extremely fine opening holes make it hard to penetrate with fingers or cutters. And the anti-climb anti-cut features enable 358 mesh fences quite suitable for special areas and fields where high security is needed.

How is 358 mesh produced?

The high security fence is produced by large machines that position and electrically weld wire intersections precisely. The automatic mechanical operation ensures that all the steel wires are appropriately spaced and each joining point on the panel is securely welded.

Generally speaking, this defense fence is made from mild steel wire, but to strengthen its firmness or beautify its appearance, treatments like galvanization and colorful polyester powder coating are applied.   

If the metal mesh will be used in a corrosive environment, you’d better choose heavy duty hot dipped galvanization. But if it’s for a noncorrosive environment and you prefer a beautiful fence appearance, it’s suitable to choose Pre hot dipped galvanization + polyester powder coating.

Many clients tend to select classic black and dark green as the coating color, however, you may send out a different color request to 358 fence manufacturers, just make sure your order quantity can meet their criteria for a customized color.
