Our partitions safeguard your inventory, machinery and property from theft and vandalism, protect workers from dangerous materials and operations, and divide your facility into distinct working areas. Welded wire mesh panels permit full visibility, do not block existing lighting, & allow for unrestricted circulation of air and heat. This makes wire mesh partitions ideal for storage of high-value and hazardous materials.

The simplified design of all Metric wire mesh partition components make installation, expansion or re-arrangement of the system simple, as nearly all components are modular and pre-drilled. Setup or re-configuration of your partition can be completed using a few tools – only a drill and wrenches are necessary for proper installation.

Customize - Designed to Suit Your Needs

We will design a solution to fit the needs of your facility and its operations. We've built partitions ranging from chest-high to ceiling-high, small enclosures around shelving units to large enclosures with roof panels for high-security inventory lockup.


Panels range in size from 4" to 60" in width, and 4" to 144" in length (sheet metal & lexan panels have a maximum size of 48x96"), and can include integrated service wickets and cut-outs to work around plumbing, electrical and HVAC obstructions.

Standard mesh is welded with 2x2" spacing, optionally it can be made with smaller spacings of 2x1" or 1x1". Metric can also provide solid 18ga sheet metal panels for situations where a solid barrier is required. Lexan panels are available for situations requiring both a solid partition, and total visibility into the enclosure.


Standard post heights range from 77" up to 149" - we have built shorter partitions around 60" tall, and up to 28 feet tall using special over-sized posts. Foot plates can be off-set or made to fit corners for small-clearance situations, or made larger such as the 6x6" foot plates for extra stability. Top plates can also be included to tie the partition to the ceiling for added rigidity.

Swing Gates

Swing gates are available in a variety of standard sized from 36x84" up to 72x96", with custom sizes available. Gates can be mounted alone, or in pairs, swinging inward or outward. All swing gates come standard with a padlock hasp - lock options include: latch locks, locking door knobs, dead-bolts, panic bars, Detex alarm panic bars and electronic keepers.

Sliding Gates

Sliding gates are also offered in an array of standard sizes - ranging from 48x96" up to 144x144", with custom sizes available. Sliding gate systems can be designed to slide to either side, work alone or in pairs with single or double track arrangements, and be mounted either inside or outside of the enclosure. The gate's hangers can be extended, for drive-in situations where a forklift's mast needs to clear under the gate track, but the partition's height doesn't need to be increased.

Total Enclosure: Roofs

For high-security applications, Metric can design your partition to include a roof - preventing access from above when it is unnecessary to build the partition up to the ceiling.
