What is modern day safety mesh made of besides plastic?

From the twists and turns of colonial columns and railings more than a hundred years ago to the exquisite molded vinyl style of today, safety meshes have always been the preferred means of ensuring privacy and deterring unwelcome visitors. Whether you want your pet to stay safely in your yard, or keep neighbor's children away from your flower bed, there are safety mesh styles and materials that suit your property.

Before loading your truck with mesh material, take a few minutes to call your local district office to see what preliminary steps you need to take. If you want to put a mesh on the ground, you may need to do a lot of research. If you belong to a homeowner’s association or live in a contract-bound development project, you may be restricted from using certain materials and restricting the height of the mesh. Once you get permission, the next step is to choose the correct type of fencing material. So what are the components of modern plastic safety meshes? Besides plastic, what types of safety mesh are also advisable?

l Plastic

l Cedar

l Composite


1. Low density polyethylene (LDPE)

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) was the first polyethylene produced in 1933 and is still widely used today. LDPE is a weaker type of polyethylene with lower tensile strength. As the name implies, LDPE has a lower density and comparable resistance. Low-density polyethylene is also very flexible and is commonly used in plastic bags, plastic packaging, plastic safety mesh, and cans and bottled sodas around the six-pack ring.

2. High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is the most common form of polyethylene. It can be used in a variety of products, from water bottles to safety helmets, to our own airport, traffic and crowd control roadblocks. HDPE is the strongest, toughest, and most chemically resistant PE. It is also the least flexible of four PEs types. These characteristics make HDPE very durable and weather resistant. It can tolerate higher temperatures and is resistant to mildew, mildew, rot and insects. The most important thing is that it is the most UV resistant, with special UV stabilizers added.


Cedar, the king of privacy safety meshes in the backyard, is known for its long-lasting appearance—tight texture, fewer knots, a satisfying red color—and its promise to never bend or shrink. Although cedar is also naturally resistant to rot and insects, this wood is not as impermeable as treated wood and may rot after being left for several years. If you choose to build a mesh with cedar wood, it is recommended to install it on a concrete foundation or fix the fence post with treated wood. Even so, the installation process is very easy to DIY, you can customize various styles of wood, including horseback and lattice top. Cedar will naturally weather into a silver-gray color. The safety mesh of this material requires maintenance, including occasional replacement of the planks. For long-lasting color and protection, use the permeable sealant immediately after installation, and then use it once a year.


The composite safety mesh is made of wood fiber and plastic polymer, which looks like wood and will not be degraded by insects and decay. This combination of style and material is slightly more expensive than vinyl and cedar, although the material and installation are like vinyl meshes, composite materials require precise installation by professionals. As the quality of materials varies, you will want to explore your options and purchase composite mesh components from reputable dealers.
