Pretty good price for this item. Fast shipping. It is the heavier gauge wire material and the long sides have two wires one on each side of the grid. This stiffens the whole unit. There are a lot variety of these on Amazon, it was hard to determine overall quality by descriptions. Prices can fluctuate widely. All of them seem overpriced in my opinion but that is the market. This turned out to be what I wanted. Paint is a basic enamel, I am mounting the grid vertically and using it to hang plants.
