Heritage Mesh & Wire Gates

Gates that are made to last…

Farmweld prides itself on making gates strong and giving you options with the type of mesh you want.


  • Scroll wire mesh gates are made with galvanised steel pipe with a 34mm OD. This is thicker and heavier than thin and flimsy tubing used by other manufacturers.
  • Stainless steel scrolls.
  • Wire mesh options:
    • Farm mesh – 150 x 100mm mesh or 75 x 50mm mesh, pre galvanised
    • Chain mesh – also known as cyclone wire or tennis court mesh it suits heritage gates as well as contemporary gates.
    • Heritage woven wire – there are two manufacturers of heritage woven wire left in Australia, and the occasional overseas import. We prefer to use quality Emu woven wire. It has more strands per metre and thicker wire than other brands.

The Cyclone company was the most prolific manufacturer of mesh and wrought iron gates in Australia. Some smaller companies also manufactured their own variations. The wire work on early mesh gates appear to have been hand woven and laced. Cyclone mass produced mesh gates using machine made chain mesh and woven wire. Chain mesh is also called cyclone wire. Most of the early gate designs continued to be popular through till the 1950′s. Old garden gates and driveway gates are still prominent in many older Australian suburbs. It was not unusual to see both heritage woven wire and chain mesh together, e.g. chain mesh gate and woven wire fencing.

1930’s Cyclone gate catalogue excerpt

Vintage gates are tightly held treasures in country homesteads. Many garden gates around the house were mesh gates. It wasn’t uncommon for farmers to have a decorative driveway gates gracing the entrance to the farm. These heritage gates are highly sought by antique gate collectors throughout Australia. Wrought iron gates came in many designs some of which are shown here. Some gates were simple with only a pair of wrought iron scrolls. More ornate gates would have half or more of the gate frame filled with wrought iron patterns.
