Hardware Wire Mesh Benefits

  • Easy to install
  • Attractive
  • Durable
  • Weather proof
  • Rust resistant
  • Long lasting
  • Light wire diameter yet good stability

Galvanized hardware cloth, or hardware cloth as it is sometimes referred to, is one of the most common and recognizable categories of wire mesh. Because hardware mesh is extremely versatile and attractively priced, it is used in thousands of different applications. Aside from its adaptability and price point, another benefit of Marco’s hardware cloth is that, due to its zinc coating, it is corrosion resistant and will have a longer life than a comparable plain steel wire mesh.

Marco Specialty Steel has one of the country’s most expansive inventories of this product. Below are some of the more popular industries and uses for hardware cloth:

  • Building and construction: general contracting, insulation, ventilation, HVAC applications, gutter guards & roofing, soffit screen, and in stucco, ceilings, and tile installation
  • Outdoor uses: protective fencing for construction areas, gardening, greenhouses, compost bins, planters, fencing and enclosures, and chicken coops
  • Pest or varmint control: protect against rats, mice, raccoons, gophers, snakes and other nuisances
  • Household uses: baskets of many sizes and cabinet facing
  • Unique industries: archaeology, beekeeping. bakeries, fishing and tractors, commonly use galvanized hardware cloth when a specific opening size is needed
  • Hardware supply and retail centers

Marco Specialty Steel offers two variations of galvanized hardware cloth, standard and specialty.

  • Standard galvanized hardware cloth is available in popular opening sizes, like 1/2″, 1/4″ and 1/8”
  • Specialty galvanized hardware cloth offers less common opening sizes, unique diameter wires, and in some cases, PVC coating

All our hardware cloth is constructed in either welded or woven construction, depending upon the opening size and diameter wire.

Generally speaking, all of Marco’s hardware cloth are manufactured and stocked in full, 100′ rolls. Available widths are typically, 24”, 36”, 48”, 60” and in some cases, 72” wide. Quantity discounts are available for multiple roll purchases. Please contact us with your exact requirements.

Please keep in mind that due to the complexities of the galvanizing process, wires may not be perfectly straight; while straightness may impact the appearance of the mesh, it should not impact its functionality. If “straightness” is a major concern, we recommend looking at another type of wire mesh, like space cloth.
