What are wire mesh cages?

what are wire mesh cges

Wire mesh cages, also called wire mesh partitions or wire mesh security cages, are enclosures that are specifically designed for securing or protecting your products or items from unauthorized access. Wire mesh cages are ideal for facilities that require the safekeeping of machinery or product while also allowing for visibility of the secured items. The woven mesh construction of wire mesh cages also allows for the free circulation of air and allows you to maintain protection against catastrophic incidents like fires as the top of the security cages are still open to fire suppression systems.

How are wire mesh cages constructed?

At American Storage & Logistics, we carry wire mesh security cages manufactured by FordLogan. The panels of our wire mesh cages are 10-gauge UNI-MESH 1 ½” diamond pattern triple crimped steel wire mesh that is securely attached to horizontal and vertical frames. The UNI-MESH woven wire design allows for the circulation of air, light, and heat within the security cage.

TWe he vertical frame members are 1 ¼” x ⅝” and the horizontal frame members are 1” x ½” in size which are interlocked at the corners with mortise and tenon joints then punched with slotted holes for easy installation in your warehouse. For additional rigidity, 1 ½” x ½” roll-formed top capping channels are bolted on the horizontal frames.

Below the panels, a 3.7” sweep space exists to allow for easy housekeeping. If your warehouse requires higher security, a cold, rolled metal sweep guard can be added to your security cage configuration.

Entryways for a typical wire mesh cage system that we stock here at American Storage and Logistics are available as hinged or sliding doors. Hinged door configurations are designed to be interchangeable for left-or-right/in-or-out slide directions, and sliding doors are equipped with four-wheel ball-bearing trolleys, enclosed track, door guides, and lock keepers. Doors can be mounted inside or outside the partition. All doors include a cylinder lock which is operated by a key on the outside and a recessed knob on the inside.
