The 12 Days of Building Product Terms: DAY 1 - Woven Rod/Woven Rod Barriers

In reference to the popular holiday song, we're proud to present The 12 Days of Building Product Terms.   Each day we'll feature a different architectural product term and its corresponding definition.  The following terms are commonly used within the architectural products industry and are directly related to the metal building products sector, in particular.

We hope you'll stick with us during this series and take advantage of our informative, daily glossary in honor of the holiday season!

Click "Read More" to get started on Day 1's term(s), Woven Rod/Woven Rod Barriers.


Woven rod is created by weaving and double-crimping low carbon mild steel rod.   This material is typically found within detention applications.  Any diameter wire rod can be used for adequate security.  Its airy feeling and narrow sight line makes it ideal for criminal justice applications.

Woven rod barriers are commonly used within these areas of correctional facilities (i.e. jails & prisons):

  • Swinging or sliding cell fronts
  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Partitions for passageways and corridors
  • Cafeterias
  • Dayrooms or detention centers
  • Partitions in elevators used to transport prisoners
  • Recreational areas
  • Ceiling & skylight protection
  • Sally ports
  • Drug cages
  • Precious metal rooms
