Hexagonal mesh is a kind of twisted hexagonal mesh, which is divided into heavy hexagonal mesh and small hexagonal mesh. The two are similar in appearance, but their uses are completely different. Let's talk about the difference between the two:
Introduction to Heavy Hexagonal Mesh
It is made of galvanized steel wire or plastic-coated steel wire, the mesh is hexagonal, and the wire diameter is above 2.0 mm and below 4.0 mm. It is used to improve and protect rivers, bridges, highways, railways, etc. It is often made into the shape of a cage and filled with stones, which not only plays a protective role, but also facilitates construction. Moreover, it is also a green product and is often used for ecological protection. The mesh of heavy hexagonal net is generally 60*80mm, 80*100mm, 100*120mm. The length of the cage is generally 1-6 meters, the width is 1-2 meters, and the height is 0.17-1 meters.
Introduction to Small Hexagon Net
The small hexagonal wire netting is made of finer steel wire or plastic-coated wire. The mesh is also hexagonal, and the wire diameter is 0.4 mm to 1.8 mm. It is woven by a lighter horizontal hexagonal mesh machine. Greening, wall protection materials, etc. The mesh size is divided into: 1/2 inches, 3/4 inches, 1 inches, 2 inches, 3 inches and so on.
The difference between heavy hexagonal mesh and small hexagonal mesh
- The production machinery is different. The small hexagonal mesh is woven and produced by the horizontal hexagonal mesh machine, which is simple in machinery, light in weight and low in purchase cost; the heavy hexagonal mesh is woven and produced by the vertical hexagonal mesh machine, which is cumbersome and expensive to purchase.
2, the mesh size is different. Due to different use locations and different production machines, their mesh design is also different.
- The wire diameter is different. Due to the limitation of production machinery, both types of hexagonal meshes have their own wire diameter applicable range.
- Different functions. In use, although they are both called hexagonal nets, each has a different purpose of use, and they all have their own use value. Heavy hexagonal nets are generally used to deal with stones, or used in water conservancy projects, or to intercept falling rocks; small hexagonal nets are often used for walls, stairs and other reinforcement bunkers, and are also often used in greening projects.
5, the cost and price are different. Heavy-duty hexagonal mesh is often processed with galvanized wire, zinc-aluminum alloy wire and other materials with a wire diameter of 2.0-4.0 mm, while small hexagonal mesh is usually woven with black wire of 0.4-1.5 or galvanized wire of about 1.0. The cost of raw materials used varies greatly.
