Welded Wire Mesh Terminology & Ordering Info

Random Tails

  • Easiest (least expensive) to shear wire mesh with random tails. Less shears to get product to size.
  • Custom material would only have random tails if requested by customer for framing purposes

Flush Edges

  • Less likely to get shipping damages, also easier to handle with flush edges
  • Most fabricators like flush edges as less welds are needed to attach it to a frame work.
  • Most expensive way to order mesh. Material has to be oversized, and then sheared down.
  • Scrap and more processes increase the price.

Equal Tails

  • Custom Welded mesh is often made with equal tails to reduce cost. Only process is welding the mats. No need to re-size
  • Wire mesh fitting into a channel frame can have equal edges without extra work, or safety concerns.
  • More time to weld into an angle frame than flush edges.
