Wire mesh is a network of wires that are usually protected against corrosion . The corrosion protection is mostly done by galvanizing the wires or a plastic coating . However, wire mesh without corrosion protection is also used when baling trees because it does not need to be removed when planting trees due to the corrosion-related decomposition in the soil.

Square braid consists of braided springs screwed together. The individual springs are formed from a wire with a rotating braiding knife, which is located in a clamped braiding screw.

Wire mesh is commercially available in various wire thicknesses and mesh sizes as well as types of mesh formation. Coarse wire mesh is often used as a fence material to demarcate properties.
