A chain link fence or an industrial wire mesh chandelier. Not quite a fence but this black wire mesh chandelier is built just as strong. They don’t look anything alike and they serve completely different purposes. But this fence and chandelier actually have a lot in common.
Industrial Wire Mesh Chandelier
Of course a fence stands along the perimeter of a yard while this chandelier hangs over the dining room table. But the construction on this iron chandelier is very similar to a fence. Welded wire mesh is generally used for barrier fencing. It’s manufactured in square or rectangular mesh from steel wire and then welded at each intersection. It is an electric fusion welded grid made from a series of parallel longitudinal wires with accurate spacing welded to cross wires at predefined spaces. Now I understand why machines are to used to produce this mesh. It’s done with precision and saves considerable time, labor and money. I didn’t realize that making a wire mesh was this complicated but the process is the same for making this iron wire mesh chandelier. This chandelier is built industrial strong yet it has a graceful and elegant shape that will enhance the beauty of any room. Hang one chandelier over the formal dining room table or hang a group of chandeliers in the large lobby of a hotel or in the waiting room of a local pub. This chandelier may not keep the children or dog from running out of the back yard but it sure will look great while entertaining family and guests. Next lesson will be electrical fusion.
