Chain Link Fence Specifications

 

A chain link fence is a type of woven fence usually made from galvanized steel wire. The chain link fence wire runs vertically and are bent into a zigzag pattern so that each "zig" hooks with the wire immediately on one side and each "zag" with the wire immediately on the other. This forms the characteristic chain link fence diamond pattern seen in this type of steel fence.

 

Common chain link fence heights include 3', 42", 4', 5', 6', 7', 8', 10', and 12', though almost any height is possible. Common mesh gauges are 6, 9, and 11.

 

Chain link fence is relatively low cost and easy to install. Due to the open weave, chain link fence offers little privacy. This can be improved by the insertion of slats into the mesh or the installation of fence screen fabric on the surface.

Commercial Fence Installation Tips

 

  • For commercial purposes, 9GA wire is common on chain link fence, although when security is an issue some prefer 6GA because it is harder to cut. 11 gauge wire is usually only used for temporary construction fence.

 

  • Consider using top rail. Most commercial chain link fencing has top rail to help prevent bending of wire tops. Sometimes top rail is left off purposely to make jumping the fence more difficult.

 

  • Bottom rail on chain link fence helps keep people from pulling up the wire and climbing under it. On ball fields, it helps keep players from sliding under it accidentally.

 

  • Setting chain link fence posts in concrete is very common on commercial applications.

 

  • Installing chain link fence posts in wetlands can be accomplished using Anchor Shoes.
