Precision Welded Mesh

Small aperture (block size) welded mesh is called precision welded mesh or aviary mesh.  This type of mesh is used to make cages for a variety of birds, reptiles and other animals.

Precision Welded Mesh is available in "Galvanised Before Welding" also called "GBW" or "Galvanised After Welding" "GAW".  

GAW advantages:  The galvanising tends to collect on the joins (where the wires cross).  The slightly thicker coating may increase the lifespan of the wire.

GAW disadvantages: The galv after welding process tends to skew/pull the block pattern.  This may make it difficult to use for suspended cages.  It is more expensive compared to GBW.

GBW advantages: The block pattern is more even when compared to GAW.  It is cheaper than GAW.  GBW works well for suspended cages.

GBW disadvantages: The galvanising is lighter when compared to GAW.
