: Does anyone know if it is safe to use galvinized wirewhen making a glider cage, if not what is best to use?Thank You Snooky.

I have read on several websites that galvanized wire can cause heavy metal poisoning. However, I had been using a galavanized wire cage with no problems. (It is very noisy and you may not want to make your cage out of it if you're keeping it in the bedroom.) I just finished making a new cage for my glider but I used vinyl coated galvanized wire fence (5/8" x 5/8".) It is MUCH quieter. I found this stuff at Builders Square in the garden section. It comes precut and prepackaged and is called Handi-Roll. Another alternative is to use clear acrylic panels or plexiglass. However, it might be harder to work with and be more expensive?
