Suregreen Chicken wire is a galvanised steel fencing mesh for garden, horticulture and agriculture applications. Sometimes referred to as hexagonal wire mesh due to the distinctive shapes of the holes. The galvanised chicken wire netting is protected against the elements as is suitable for outdoor applications such as chicken coops, rabbit runs, garden fencing, deer fencing and fruit cages.
The metal chicken wire netting is manufactured from steel wire that is galvanised with using a hot-dipped zinc coating that provides the metal with a corrosion resistant surface that is designed not to rust. This treatment insures the fencing will not only have a longer life but will also maintain its metallic grey colour finish.
We offer a range of different lengths, heights, holes sizes and wire thicknesses throughout a chicken wire range, we also offer the majority of our chicken wire roll sizes in a green PVC coated finish, please contact us our visit our PVC chicken wire page to see our full range.
