Improve safety and security with our range of high-visibility barrier mesh
Safety barrier mesh is a plastic mesh for separating work areas from main traffic, including construction sites, road works, events, and other applications where safety and security are paramount. It is usually made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP) plastic, which makes it lightweight, durable, and weather resistant.
Barrier mesh is a great way to create a physical barrier between people and hazardous areas or machinery. It can also help prevent unauthorised access to construction sites or events and protect workers and the public from falling objects or debris....

Choosing between onion bag barrier mesh and plastic barrier mesh
Onion bag mesh is a small mesh commonly used for packaging and transporting onions and other produce; however, it is also used as a cost-effective barrier for security and safety reasons. It is typically made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) plastic and has a diamond-shaped pattern.
Plastic barrier mesh, on the other hand, is typically made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP) plastic and has a rectangular-shaped pattern. Plastic barrier mesh is highly visible, durable, and resistant to UV radiation, chemicals, and weather conditions, making it ideal for longer-term use.
Choosing a heavy-duty mesh barrier requires careful consideration of the site conditions, safety requirements, regulations, and budget. It is important to consult with a safety professional or supplier to select the most appropriate mesh for your specific application.
The benefits of mesh barriers
Onion bags and plastic barrier mesh are cost-effective for keeping pedestrians and unauthorised individuals clear of dangerous, potentially life-threatening or secure areas. Other benefits of this tough mesh include:
Enhanced security: Barrier mesh can help prevent unauthorised access to construction sites, events, or other areas where security is important.
Increased visibility: Barrier mesh is usually brightly coloured, which makes it highly visible and easy to spot from a distance. This improves safety and helps prevent accidents.
Lightweight and easy to install: Barrier mesh is lightweight and easy to handle and install, which reduces labour costs and installation time.
Durable and weather-resistant: Barrier mesh is typically made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP) plastic, extending your barrier’s useful life and reducing frequent replacements.
Cost-effective: Barrier mesh is generally less expensive than other barriers or fences, such as metal wire mesh or chain-link fences. It offers a cost-effective solution for temporary or short-term applications.
- Environmentally friendly: Barrier mesh can be reused or recycled after its useful life, which reduces waste and promotes sustainability. Suitable for a wide range of environments, our mesh barriers are available in 50m rolls for your convenience.
