Coating finishes

We Otter Fencing’s Chain-Link Fabric is manufactured from Australian made Onesteel® Wire and Bekaert Wire for guaranteed quality, with a choice of Standard Galvanized (W02Z), Heavy Galvanized (W10Z), P.V.C. coated wire in Black & Dark Green and Black Fusion Bonded wire for applications that require a higher durability.

 

  1. Standard Galvanized Wire (W02Z) & Heavy Galvanized Wire (W10Z) Standard Galvanized wire (W02Z) should not be mistaken or passed off for Heavy Galvanized wire (W10Z). Indicative figures from Onesteel® research reflect a life to the onset of red rust of greater than 4 times between Standard and Heavy Galvanized coatings in low corrosion environments. In wire used to manufacture for Chain-Link Fabric (2.50mm and 3.15mm diameter) there is a differential in coating mass of approximately 200g/m2between Standard and Heavy Galvanized Coatings.

*The inferior metallic coating of Standard Galvanized coated wire (W02Z) does not meet the Australian Standard – Chain-Link Fabric Security Fences and Gates (AS 1725-2010).

  1. Polyvinyl Chloride coated wire, (P.V.C. coated wire)

*Available in standard colours of either Black or Dark Green.

P.V.C. coated wire diameters are measured and specified by the core base Galvanized wire diameter.

*The outer P.V.C. coating provides for a decorative coating, but provides no extra strength or tensility.

black-wire-diam

 

  1. Fusion Bonded coated wire (*Available in Black).

Fusion Bonded coated wire is a premium product due to the special way the PVC coating is bonded to the galvanized core wire by means of a primary adhesive.

Fusion Bonded wire is highly resistant to impact damage using experienced in sporting applications e.g cricket nets, baseball & softball backnets, etc…

Fusion Bonded wire is also ideal for installation in areas that experience extreme weather conditions.

 

Chain-Link Fabric – Service Duty  There are three (3) main wire diameters that are used to manufacture Chain-Link Fabric which meet the Australian Standards for Chain-Link fencing Australian Standard – Chain-Link Fabric Security Fences and Gates (AS 1725-2010). For a summary of the Australian Standard please click here

  • Light Duty: is manufactured from 2.50mm dia. wire and is used in lighter applications, such as; temporary fencing
  • Heavy Duty: is manufactured from 3.15mm dia. wire and is used in more durable applications. e.g. Security, Industrial and Sports fencing.
  • Extra Heavy Duty: is manufactured from 4.00mm dia. wire and is used in more durable applications. e.g. High Security and Heavy Industrial.

*Light Duty 2.50mm Chain-Link fabric provides for only approximately 60% of the load bearing capacity of heavy 3.15 mm Chain-Link fabric.

Standard diamond (pitch) size

OtterFencingPitchSizes

 

*The pitch is measured diagonally across the diamond and is only a nominal measurement. According to AS2423 there is an allowable tolerance of +/- 4mm in the pitch size.

60mm pitch: has the least amount of wire per m2 out of the five (5) diamond (pitch) sizes and is normally used for budget fencing applications such as temporary fencing.

50mm pitch: is the standard pitch size of Chain-Link fabric and is used in most applications.  45mm pitch: is used for tennis court fencing and gates.  40mm and 32mm pitch: is used where a smaller pitch size is required e.g. animal enclosures or golf screens.
