A chain link fence is a great option for both commercial and high security fencing. However, once you’ve decided to go with a chain link fence, your decisions are not quite over yet. There are a variety of different materials that can be used to construct a chain link fence, each with their own pros and cons. Here is some more information on the material options you have for your chain link fence.
These wires are dipped in zinc and then galvanized in one of two ways. They will either galvanize the fence after weaving it together or before weaving it together. Galvanizing before weaving may leave some uncoated areas at the wires end, while doing it after weaving can leave uncoated areas where the mesh touches. More people choose to the option that galvanizing the wire after weaving. Both methods will give your chain link fence an average lifespan of 12 years with no maintenance required. This makes them better suited for privacy and residential fencing.
The advantages of aluminum wires for your chain link fence is that they are corrosion resistant and weather resistant. In addition to this, aluminum is lightweight, durable, and has a long lifespan. They coat these wires the same way that they do galvanized wires. Aluminum chain link fences can last up to 25 years even in bad weather conditions. This type of fence is good for commercial properties.
Stainless Steel Wires
These are the most durable of the three materials which also means that it is the most expensive as well. Stainless steel chain link fences has a very high alkali resistance and can sustain very high temperatures as well as being weather resistant. These wires do not break, roll, or sag easily at all, so their shape is retained for a very long time. Stainless steel is recommended for high security fencing as well as barriers for airports, highways, and railroads.
