chainlink fence

When they think about chainlink fencing, most people assume they're all made from the same materials and constructed in the same style. There's more to chainlink fencing than meets the eye, which is what we're here to discuss today.



In this post, we're going to tell you about some of the different chainlink fence styles so you can choose the best one for your needs. As one of the top fencing companies in Vancouver, we at Western Fence & Gate Ltd. know a thing or two about what makes a good chainlink fence. Keep reading, and let us help you learn more about these simple but amazing fences.


Why Chain-Link Fencing?

Chainlink fences don't look as nice as ornamental aluminum ones, but they can be more practical and secure. The galvanized steel used to make chain link fencing is long-lasting and durable while maintaining a level of affordability that you don't get with other materials.


Should you need any maintenance, chainlink fencing is super simple to repair and maintain to keep them looking as good as possible. Finally, chainlink fencing is quick and cheap to install compared to brick, wood, PVC, and other types of metal fencing. All-in-all chainlink fencing is a great low-maintenance option.


The Styles of Chain-Link Fencing

At Western Fence, we allow you to decide on the style of chainlink fencing depending on your needs. It's an important decision for both your fencing needs and what you want the fence to look like, so let's look at the factors that you need to consider:


  • Diameter The gauge of the wire tells you how much of the galvanized steel is in the fencing material. The smaller gauge, the more steel is included, which means the fence will be more durable overall. A larger gauge will, on the other hand, provide more flexibility to your fence.

  • Mesh Size The mesh of the fencing determines how much space there is between the wires in the fence. If it's a smaller mesh size, the little diamond shapes in the fence are smaller; if it's a larger mesh size, then they're bigger.

  • Metallic-Coated or Color-Coated In addition to the size and thickness of the fence, you can choose to have it metallic-coated or colour-coated. Although the metallic coating of today's fencing wire and posts is rust-resistant, choosing colour coating gives you an extra layer of protection against deterioration. With colour coating, you'll also have the option of a black, green, or brown chainlink fence. If you choose metallic-coating, you can also decide to paint it down the road, should you change your mind.
