Wire Mesh Security Cages

Wire mesh security cages are popular for their light, strong design, which facilitates greater levels of airflow, ideal for data centre and IT environments where servers are at risk of overheating. Choosing suitable security caging for your data centre is all about evaluating the options and balancing the need for security with the need for airflow. If even stronger security is required, you may want to also consider our Connexions Modular cages or Certified Extendor Cages.



With the core benefit of improving airflow within server rooms, Cross-Guard’s wire mesh security cages have been installed by the company’s team of experts in a variety of places across the world, including London, Bulgaria and Portugal. Wire mesh cages have thinner cross-sections of metal around the cage holes, meaning more air is allowed to circulate. Due to their light, flexible design, and easy installation, wire mesh security cages are also popular for use in a variety of other industries to ensure security of contents.

As an example of how wire mesh can improve airflow, let’s take the case of an existing client who replaced a non-mesh perforated security cage panel with a 3mm wire mesh panel. This helped improve airflow in the overall data centre by 11.2%. Replacement of an additional wire mesh panel also increased airflow by 11%.

Wire mesh security cage systems are light and flexible, and can also be used for underfloor and above ceiling barriers to aid ventilation even further. The 12.7mm square hole pattern for wire mesh panels is considered to offer a good balance between security and ventilation.
