Chain Link Fences
Chain-link fences are a cost effective way to provide security whether you are looking to enclose a pool, keep children and pet safe, or protect your business or valuables. With many colors and heights to choose from, it can be a great way to meet your needs. We offer galvanized chain link and vinyl coating chain link in three colors (green, brown, and black). Adding privacy slats can make your area more secluded than traditional chain link.
When selecting a chain-link fence, there are several choices to consider that can affect its functionality, appearance, and overall performance. Here are some of the key choices you'll encounter:
Gauge: Chain-link fences come in different gauges, which refer to the thickness of the wire mesh. The gauge determines the strength and durability of the fence. Common gauges include 11, 11.5, 12, 12.5, and 13. The lower the gauge number, the thicker and stronger the wire will be.
Height: Chain-link fences are available in various heights to suit different needs. Common heights range from 3 feet to 8 feet, although custom heights can be accommodated. The height you choose will depend on factors such as your desired level of privacy and security.
Mesh Size: The mesh size refers to the dimensions of the diamond-shaped openings in the chain-link fabric. Common mesh sizes are 2 inches, 2-3/8 inches, and 1-3/4 inches. Smaller mesh sizes offer increased security by reducing the size of the openings, while larger mesh sizes allow more visibility and airflow.
Coating: Chain-link fences can be coated with different materials to enhance their durability and appearance. The most common coatings include galvanized and vinyl. Galvanized chain-link fences are coated with zinc to prevent rust and corrosion, while vinyl-coated fences have an additional layer of vinyl that provides color and further protection against rust.
Color: If you opt for a vinyl-coated chain-link fence, you'll have the choice of different colors, typically black, green, and brown. The color selection allows you to match the fence with your surroundings or personal preferences.
Framework: The framework of a chain-link fence consists of the posts, rails, and fittings that support the wire mesh. The choice of framework material is crucial for the fence's strength and longevity. Common materials include galvanized steel, aluminum, and sometimes vinyl-coated steel. Galvanized steel is the most commonly used due to its durability.
Gates: When installing a chain-link fence, you'll need to consider the type and size of gates required for access. Gates can be single or double swing gates, sliding gates, or even cantilever gates. The choice will depend on your specific needs and available space.
By considering these various choices, you can customize your chain-link fence to meet your specific requirements in terms of strength, height, visibility, and aesthetic appeal.
