Mesh for Aviaries, Cages, Gamebird Pens, Kennels, and Poultry Houses
Whether you need to protect caged animals or birds from predators or secure these animals to protect others, Shepherd Coated Cage Wire is the answer in strength and durability. Cage manufacturers prefer the smooth surface vinyl coated surface of Shepherd mesh which eliminates snagging or cutting from sharp surfaces and makes the wire easy to clean. Shepherd's exclusive fuse-bonded process provides a PVC coating over a high quality galvanized welded wire mesh, making it extremely rust resistant even when subjected to water and other corrosive elements common in cage environments. Aviaries, cages, kennels and animal enclosures made of Shepherd wire are easy to build and are virtually maintenance free. With a variety of meshes from 1/4" x 1/4" to 4" x 4" mesh, and gauge from 23 to 12 1/2, there's a Shepherd Cage Mesh to meet your specific needs from rabbit hutches to zoological applications.
Commercial Zoological Applications
Shepherd offers galvanized mesh, PVC coated mesh and stainless steel mesh for zoo use. Meshes are suitable for flight enclosures, large animal exhibits, general fence use and more.
Kennels, Cages & Enclosures
Shepherd coated cage wire is the first choice of kennels for fencing, cage construction and flooring. With Shepherd vinyl coated cage mesh, animals always have a dry, sanitary and quieter environment. Portable pens from Shepherd Wire are an easy, humane way to provide a controlled and comfortable environment for pets at home or away. Shepherd's exclusive fuse-bonded PVC coating hoses clean for the most sanitary conditions possible. Shepherd mesh is also an effective means of nuisance animal control. Vermin attracted to food bowls or storage are discouraged by steel mesh when used as a rodent barrier.
Dimensionally consistent, smooth, corrosion resistant Shepherd Wire Mesh is a key element in building quality aviaries. The mesh offers superior protection against predators ensuring safe haven for birds in flight and at rest. Aviaries are meant to allow us to enjoy pet birds in as natural an environment as possible, so it's important that Shepherd Wire Mesh is unobtrusive to the human eye.
