Since 1891 chain link fencing has made a place for itself in the fence industry. Used for many diverse reasons by businesses and home owners, chain link provides high security for a low price. Chain link is great for playgrounds, backyards, prisons, sport fields, car impound lots, and much more in Firestone.
Most applications of chain link call for galvanized wire, but chain link also comes in vinyl coated colors such as black, brown and green. Chain link also has different gauges, anywhere from 12 ½ ga (light weight) to 6ga (1/4” wire). Prisons use 6ga chain link most often. Chain link is a non-private fence which is transparent and allows sunlight to pass through.
Privacy slats can be added to any type of chain link although caution should be taken that the fence framework is sufficient to support the additional load or weight. Compared to other fence types, chain link is less expensive and very durable.
Vinyl coated chain link mesh comes in a variety of colors. Black, brown, and green are the most commonly used colors. Any other color for vinyl coated chain link would incur an expensive setup fee, and replacement parts would not be available without additional set up fees. Vinyl coated chain link mesh is either fuse bonded or extruded bonded. Fuse bonded vinyl coated chain link mesh uses a primer to achieve chemical bonding to the wire and is recommended for industrial and commercial applications as well as meeting the F-668 Class 2B requirements.
