Unusual Uses for Chain Link

You might be surprised to find chain link fence used horizontally around a helipad as a safety net.

As far as reliable fencing goes, chain link is almost always the best bet. It is known for its durability and is a cost-effective and easy installation. Because of this, you can find several creative uses for chain link fencing.

Bike Cages

Parking garages, especially in an apartment complex, can benefit from chain link fencing to section off an area specifically for bicycles. These bike cages are an upgrade in protecting a tenant’s bicycle from theft as opposed to bike racks. Many apartment parking garages use bike cages that lock with a keypad.


Riding a helicopter is both an exciting and dangerous experience and often boarding or exiting a helicopter poses the most risk. You might be surprised to find chain link fence used horizontally around a helipad as a safety net. The chain link extends the perimeter of the helipad to keep anyone from falling off but is mostly see-through so that the pilot can still take off and land safely.

Bridges and Overpasses

When driving on the highway, it’s easy to overlook the chain link fencing along bridges and overpasses, but it plays an important role in safety. It may not stop a car, but the sight of the fencing can encourage drivers to stay inside the limits of the overpass. Most importantly, chain link fencing protects pedestrians who use the sidewalks that are along many bridges and overpasses.
