    Hello an TIA for any information offered.

    I am in the panning process of out coop. I see that the recommended material to use is 1/2'' hardware cloth for any openings. I have access to 1/2 expanded metal and was wondering if this would be an acceptable alternative? Here is a link for those that aren't familiar with expanded metal. http://www.zx-expandedmetal.com/ut/product/201433110122714.jpg

    Thanks again for any feed back.

    Looks strong . Also looks like it would rust.
