What is 358 Security Fencing?
Understanding 358 Security Fencing
When looking for the right high-security fencing you might keep coming across the name 358 fencing.
Often referred to as 358 Security fencing or even 358 prison mesh fencing and renowned for its unparalleled security features, this welded mesh fencing solution is a global favourite for safeguarding critical facilities and sensitive areas.
358 mesh is essentially a welded mesh panel combined with a robust steel support structure. What sets this security fencing apart from others?
Hard To Climb
The primary characteristic of 358 mesh fencing is its dimensions which give it its name. Its apertures are 3 inches long and 0.5 inches high, and the wire used to create the mesh is 8-gauge wire ensuring durability and strength. The small apertures and the mesh’s sturdy construction mean the fencing is extremely difficult for anyone to cut through or climb, further fortifying your security measures.
Striking the perfect balance between security and visibility, the design allows those within the protected area to see outside. This transparency can be crucial for maintaining situational awareness.
The popularity of this fencing is not limited to borders. Its reputation for enhanced security extends worldwide, making it a top choice for facilities that require the utmost protection. In some parts of the world, you may also come across variations such as 356 mesh and 3510 mesh. These variants share the same core principles but may have slight variations in dimensions or materials to suit regional preferences and requirements.
Even with its high-security attributes, this fencing has a low-profile appearance, making it more aesthetically appealing without compromising on security. This makes it suitable for various applications, including areas where a discreet yet robust security solution is required.
