Chain link fences are commonly used as barriers for pools, railways or expressways. The chain link fence fabric – also known as wire or mesh – are made by weaving galvanized wires into spirals of diamond patterns in different sizes, gauges, and selvages.
The gauge refers to the diameter of individual galvanized wires of the fabric, and the higher the gauge number the thinner the wire is. Therefore, residential and commercial applications typically require a higher gauge fence than high-security applications. Our chain link fences are available in 1 mm – 4 mm.
The selvage refers to the top and bottom of the chain link fence, with the main types being Common (barbed and sharp, exposed edges that are used in high-security contexts), and the Wrap Edge (round and safer, used in residential and commercial areas).
While they can come in many heights, 6-foot chain link fences are used as common boundary solutions. Chain link fence rolls and parts can be bought separately and assembled, but our system comes with the complete package, with installation services available.
