Chicken Mesh

Chicken wire has specific properties for plastering use. Chicken wire mesh is formed by twisting two adjacent wires at least four times, forming a strong honeycomb mesh structure. So, it has a high strength and durability. Even if a place is cut off, it will not lead to the entire chicken mesh structure destroyed. When using for plastering, plaster layer and the reinforcing metal layer have different thermal expansion coefficient.

Detailed Description for Chicken Mesh

Chicken wire has specific properties for plastering use. Chicken wire mesh is formed by twisting two adjacent wires at least four times, forming a strong honeycomb mesh structure. So, it has a high strength and durability. Even if a place is cut off, it will not lead to the entire chicken mesh structure destroyed. When using for plastering, plaster layer and the reinforcing metal layer have different thermal expansion coefficient. 

Chicken wire, or poultry netting, is a mesh of wire commonly used to fence poultry livestock, such as chickens, in a run or coop. It is made of thin, flexible galvanized steel wire, with hexagonal gaps. Available in 1 inch (about 2.5 cm) diameter, 2 inch (about 5 cm) and 1/2 inch (about 1.3 cm), chicken wire is available in various wire gauges usually 19 gauge (about 1 mm wire) to 22 gauge (about 0.7 mm wire). Chicken wire is occasionally used to build inexpensive cages for small animals (or to protect plants and property from animals) though the thinness and zinc content of galvanized wire may be inappropriate for animals prone to gnawing and will not keep out predators.

In construction, chicken wire or hardware cloth is used as a metal lath to hold cement or plaster, in a process known as stuccoing. Concrete reinforced with chicken wire or hardware cloth yields ferrocement, a versatile construction material. It can also be used to make the armature for a papier-mâché sculpture, when relatively high strength is needed.

Application: Hexagonal wire netting is used for feeding chicken, ducks, gooses, rabbits and the fence of zoo. Also used in machinery protection, fences for road, railway, etc. It can be made into box to hold stones and sand to protect the bank, hillside, bridge and other related civil engineering against the flood.
