How to Prepare for a Metal Mesh Installation

One type of facade that can provide a property with benefits is the metal mesh fencing. This extra layer adds to any exterior by providing it some unique characteristics, such as sun protection and fall prevention in certain climates or applications where things might tip over easily.

While it offers a lot of benefits, the wrong setup of metal mesh in Singapore may not be as useful to you in the long run. The key to avoiding this is by knowing how to prepare for metal mesh installation. You can avoid this by keeping the following considerations in mind:

  1. Aesthetic value.

When choosing a metal mesh fencing, it is important to consider the aesthetic value of your choice. The design of the material you choose will determine how much time and money you spend on maintenance through its lifespan. For example, if you choose a basic wire fence that requires continuous painting or staining after installation, this can be costly and time-consuming for homeowners who are not interested in maintaining their fencing’s appearance. A more expensive option would be pre-treated steel panels that require less time and effort to keep up with appearances.

  1. Function of the metal mesh fencing.

Metal mesh in Singapore is a versatile and flexible product that can be used for many different things. It can keep bugs out of your garden or it can be used to cover an air conditioning unit.

One use for metal mesh is to make window screens. When you want the fresh air in but don’t want creatures flying in, a metal screen will do the trick.  Another popular use for metal mesh is as a fence material. This way if someone tries to climb over, they will get caught on the top bar and not be able to go any further than that point. A third use for this material would be orchards or urban gardens where the area needs protection from pests that may cause damage to the soil, plants, and impending harvest.

  1. Site topography.

It is important to consider the topography of your site before installing a fence. Researching ground surfaces and their characteristics can help you decide where to put up the fence and the type of foundations to use on the metal mesh.

  1. Permits.

A fence is a great way to keep your property looking good and make it more difficult for would-be intruders. Make sure you determine if installing the fence will require an approval before starting by checking with local authorities or contacting your city hall website on how these procedures work in their area.

You may want to ask the metal mesh fencing provider if they are going to take care of the paperwork required for installation. Some providers cover the said tasks in their packages, while others don’t (or they do it for an additional fee).

  1. Size of the property.

How big do you think your property is? The height of fences is typically measured in feet and some people use meters, but it’s best to measure both for an accurate estimate. Once the measurements have been made on one side (or end) of where they would like their fence line go metal mesh will be stretched across them using tension rods adjusted appropriately depending upon weather conditions expected at any given time during installation – this could range anywhere between 4” wide gaps all-the way up through around 10″.
