Melsteel prides itself on providing quality steel materials in Melbourne for a variety of needs.

We offers general purpose galvanised mesh in a variety of sizes. It’s a versatile product that can be cut, bent, or welded to suit your individual needs.

Galvanization is a process in which a protective zinc coating is applied to steel to prevent rust from occurring.


Some popular uses of galvanised mesh include:

  • Outdoor structures such as enclosures and fencing
  • Barriers for animals (e.g. farms or backyards. Read our blog on ‘puppy playpens’ for more!)
  • Barrier for pests (snakes, rats or mice)
  • Agricultural use (e.g. greenhouses and farms)
  • Safety guards (e.g. windows, doors, bike sheds)
  • Seaside and marine enclosures
  • Building and construction
  • Landscaping
  • Infill panels
  • Wall retention
  • General industrial use

Steel mesh can be galvanised prior to being woven as individual wires or after once it has been woven. Post galvanised mesh usually offers a higher level of anti-corrosion, especially at the joints where rust is common.

Benefits of galvanised mesh includes:

  • Variety of shapes
  • Variety of sizes
  • Versatility (it can be cut, bent of welded)
  • The zinc coating protects the steel from rust
  • It’s great for household or industrial use
  • It’s relatively strong
  • It can act as a security barrier for animals, homes or businesses
  • Even if the zinc coating manages to corrode, that layer will be damaged and not the steel beneath it
