Chain Link Fences

Overview

Chain link is the most cost-effective fence solution and is a great option for securing a large area. The steel wire and recognizable diamond pattern give the fence its strength and provide flexibility when force is applied.

There is more to chain link fences than you may realize. There are several different heights, gauges of mesh fabric, and colors to help match budgets and project needs.

Benefits

Lower Upfront Cost
A chain link fence is an affordable option when compared to other materials.

Transparency
The woven nature of a chain link fence provides security plus an unobstructed view of a property and its surroundings.

Low Maintenance
Minimal maintenance is required because the galvanized and aluminized coatings used on the links help prevent rust.

Chain Link Fences

We use our expertise to help you choose the fabric, framework, and accessories to create the perfect system for your needs. Our chain link fence installation process ensures that your posts are properly spaced for the weight of the fabric and framework as well as to withstand expected wind loads. We also consider the design and construction of post footings to maintain the structural integrity of the fence. Each step of the way, we help you consider and build to the needed strength, security, and longevity of your chain link fencing system.

Fabric
Galvanized After Weaving (GAW): The wire is first woven into the fabric and then galvanized with a zinc coating.

Galvanized Before Weaving (GBW): The wire is first galvanized with a zinc coating and then woven into fabric to protect against rust and corrosion.

Aluminized: Aluminum coated fabric provides the superior strength of steel along with the exceptionally smooth, long-lasting finish of aluminum.

Framework
Having a strong framework is important when installing a chain link fence as it is the backbone of the entire structure. We will help you choose the right components to withstand all application conditions.

Selvage
Selvage refers to the way the individual ends of the wire are finished after being woven together. The wire can be “knuckled” to avoid sharp ends or “twisted” when more security is required.

Selvage
Colors
Chain link fences can also be covered in a black or green color coating. This creates a decorative appearance and can help the fence to blend in with its surroundings.

Accessories

Depending on your project, you may wish to add an accessory item to the fence. A sales rep can provide more details for these items upon request.

Privacy: Slats can be woven through the links to create privacy.

Added Security: If additional security is needed to ensure that a fence is not climbable, you can use mini-mesh fabric and / or add a razor or barbed wire at the top.

Top Caps: A top cap provides protection against injury by covering the barbs at the top while adding a decorative element to the overall fence. This is a popular option for athletic field fences.
