Wire Mesh Partitions - Everything You Need To Know in 2021

Table of Contents

What is a wire mesh partition?

A partition, as the definition states, is used to divide an area into separate parts. From a business perspective, If you’re looking to increase your safety and security, or provide additional secure enclosures for supplies or personnel, then you would benefit from a wire mesh partition. Not only do they provide you with peace of mind but in some fields they are mandatory requirements for operations.

What are wire partitions made of?

There are a variety of materials used for partitions as well as the size of the woven or welded wire. Typically 10-gauge wires are used between even thicker heavy-duty 2” posts. These woven or welded wire panels are also attached to the angle frames and connected to square steel tubing posts to create a custom and secure structure that is built to your exact needs. Some manufacturer’s designs allow the welded wire panels to be trimmed to build around obstructions without damaging the integrity of the panel, while still providing a high level of protection.

The panels are typically used for the walls of the enclosure but can also be used as infill panels, transoms, or as a ceiling. The standard sizes of these panels are typically made in even foot increments to a maximum of 10’ wide and 5’ high. Filler panels are often used to fill gaps, but due to the customization that is available with partitions, they can be made to any size necessary.

Because of the design of these structures, they allow for the circulation of light, air for filtration, sprinkler systems, as well as not blocking the view of any security cameras. You’ll get to keep an eye on your possessions at all times while also ensuring that no environmental damages are being caused.

How much do partitions cost?

Prices can vary greatly depending on what you’re looking for. The size of the project, the preferred wire gauge size, and the type of project can all impact the cost of your partitions. Additional options may also increase the cost of installation as well.

At that point, a trusted team of installers will begin securing your pieces into place.

Installation varies depending on the size, height, length of the project but it can be quickly assembled in a clear open area. Layouts can easily be modified and reconfigured. One of the benefits of these partition systems is that there is very little downtime that occurs so your company can get back up and running as soon as possible.

How much security do partitions offer?

Wire mesh partitions can be a full floor-to-ceiling solution and as such people are unable to crawl over or under the partition to gain access to your inventory. Due to their steel construction, they are also not easily bent meaning you won’t have anyone squeezing through any gaps as you see in the films.
