There are many other names for double wire mesh fences, such as twin wire mesh fencing, double wire metal fence, 2D security fence, and 868/656 fence. Whatever the name is, they share the same nature, double horizontal wires.

In general, a double metal fence has one 6mm diameter vertical wire sandwiched by two 8mm diameter horizontal wires. That’s how the 868 fence comes.

Components of double wire mesh fence

A whole set of double wire fence is usually composed of double wire fence panels, posts, and accessories.

Double wire fence panels

The fence panels are generally made of high quality low carbon steel wires. And to prolong fence panels’ service life, three types of surface treatments are optional, including heavy duty hot dipped galvanized, pre hot dipped galvanized + polyester powder coated, pre hot dipped galvanized + pvc coated.

The hot dipped galvanizing process produces a protective layer on the panel surface, which will effectively prevent oxidation corrosion in the natural environment. And the further powder or pvc coating even strengthens its corrosion resistance, meanwhile painting the panels with different colors to make them better melt into the surroundings.

Double wire fence posts

Double wire fences always match with two types of posts, square posts (usually 60 mm *60mm)and rectangle posts(usually 60mm * 80mm). Similar to the fence panel, the post body is also galvanized and powder coated to supply a longer lifetime. Besides, anti-UV plastic rain caps are provided to better protect the posts.

Besides double horizontal wires, you can easily see the trim on the top right and bottom left corners of this metal fence. This unique design is specially customized for customers from Qatar, and that’ s where its name comes from. Of course, clients from other countries can change the trim pattern as per their practical needs. Just make a discussion with the fence suppliers.


The last type is not a typical double wire fence, because not all wires in horizontal lines are dual. Double horizontal wires just appear intermittently at a certain distance.
