Galvanized Before Weave (GBW)

Galvanized before weave fencing or “pre-galv” wire has the attractiveness and durability of aluminized at around the same cost as traditional chain link fencing. The pre-galvanizing process eliminates the occurrence of unsightly zinc “icicles”, making installation easier and safer.
If you’ve ever cut your hand or caught your shirt on a chain link fence, then you know that the jagged little protrusions left over from the galvanizing process can be a pain, or even dangerous. That’s why Sharon Fence is proud to be a supplier of GBW fencing a cleaner, more consistent alternative to traditional galvanized after weave (GAW) wire.

Just like the name says, GBW wire is hot-dip galvanized strand by strand, resulting in a smooth finish every time. With GAW, the whole woven mesh is galvanized, causing drippage, zinc “icicles”, and a frozen mesh that can be hard to stretch during installation.

Galvanized before weave fencing is a great option for:

  • Playgrounds
  • Ball Parks
  • Kennels
  • Residences
  • Schools
