Buyer's Guide

Local Tar Jali

Wire netting, locally known as Local Tar Jali is a woven metal mesh of wires. The horizontal weft wires are threaded over and under warp wires. The wires interweave together to form a stable and strong metallic fabric. 

The Local Tar Jali is tightly woven and is quite flexible. It can be bent or shaped as required. The woven design allows for maximum impact resistance, unlike Welded Mesh. Our Tar Jali is famously used in doors and windows, as insect and dust repellant guards and for security and ventilation.


Material Selection: We provide the following material choices: Standard Galvanised Wire and Stainless Steel. Other options may be available for custom bulk orders.

Wire Drawing (as required): The wire is drawn through multiple dies, in order to achieve the desired thickness. This process also ensures uniformity and consistency in its diameter.

Wire Cleansing: The wires are lubricated with various solutions and/or oils to maintain a good finish and corrosion resistance. Surface treatments such as annealing (heat treatment), galvanizing (zinc coating) may also be done in-house.

Coiling: The wires are then coiled onto compatible spools.

Setup: The spools are then set up as required by the wire mesh machine. This requires feeding the wire onto the warp beam.

Weaving: Each wire passes alternately over and under the divergent wires. The shuttle carries the horizontal weft wire across.

Feeding: The vertical wires are fed slightly, according to the appropriate mesh size. 

Harness repositioning: The two harnesses holding the vertical wires switch their height positions.

Further Weaving: The shuttle then moves the other way, in order to continue the weaving process. The fabric is bound together tightly, with the machine's movements. 

Disengaging the fabric: The final mesh is disengaged from the machine, ready to be rolled.

Packaging: The woven wire mesh is cut into 50ft rolls and packaged using custom machinery.

Quality Inspection: Each roll is inspected multiple times in its production cycle. During production, mesh size is being measured every few hours. During every shuttle refills, wire thickness is re-assured. Then, at the moment of length measurements and packaging, the quality of the final product is assessed. 

Coating or Painting (Optional): PVC coated and painted options are available for most mesh sizes.
