Advantages of Installing a Chain Link Fence in Vancouver

When you’re considering the installation of a chain link fence in Vancouver, you’ll want to keep in mind the various benefits!

 Long-Lasting and Durable – Chain link fencing consists of galvanized steel, which can stand up to the elements and other forms of wear for years to come. An added benefit is that a chain link fence can be painted or coated to further defend against corrosion from ice and snow and exposure to rain and sunlight.

 Easy to Repair – If a chain-link fence is damaged due to vandalism, accidents, or other causes, we can easily remove or repair the section in question. From a design perspective, the new area of galvanized steel will blend right in with the existing fencing, meaning you won’t ever need to replace the entire fence.

 Simple Maintenance – There is virtually no maintenance required when it comes to chain link fencing. The Western Fence & Gate team recommends hosing down your chain link fence with soap and water every so often to give it a fresh and shiny look.

 Low Purchase and Installation Costs – Compared to other types of fencing, a chain-link fence is very affordable, as is the installation. It’s typically cheaper to install than brick, PVC, wood and other forms of residential fencing.

Choosing Your Style of Chain Link Fence

Choosing a chain link fence style is a crucial decision for your fencing needs and from a design perspective. Luckily, Western Fence & Gate team has the knowledge and experience to help you make the best decision, whether you’re installing chain link fencing at your home or business.


Two essential steps play into the decision-making process:

 Diameter – The diameter of the wire—also known as the gauge—determines how much-galvanized steel is contained within the fabric. The smaller the gauge number is, the more steel is included, resulting in a higher quality fence.

 Mesh Size – This determines the distance between the wires in the fencing mesh. In layman’s terms, this is the size of each “diamond” shape throughout the entirety of your fence. Our team will accommodate various sizes depending on your preference.

FAQs

When looking for fencing, it is best to educate yourself about your options. The following are some commonly asked questions about our chain-link fencing in Vancouver:

What are fittings?

Various types of fittings are required to assemble a chain link fence system. A specific variety of fitting is used for line posts and terminal posts. Lightweight and economical cast steel or aluminum is used for residential applications.

 

Do the posts need to be set in concrete footings?

No. Typically, the posts are pounded to a recommended minimum depth, allowing the least disturbance to the compacted soil.

 

What Is Chain-Link Fabric?

Chain-link fabric, or wire mesh, is a series of spirals that manufacturers weave together in a diamond pattern. This pattern comes in numerous gauges and sizes.

 

What Does the Gauge of a Wire Mean?

As mentioned above, chain-link fabric forms a diamond pattern available in numerous sizes. The spiral wires that form the fabric consist of individual steel wires, and the gauge is the diameter of these steel wires. A higher wire diameter means a thinner wire. The 9' gauge is the most common choice for residential and commercial properties. 

 

What Does the Selvage Mean?

The selvage of a chain-link fabric refers to how the manufacturers have finished its top and bottom. The selvage concerns the area where the strands of wire bend together. The two most common types are 'barbed' and 'knuckle.'

 

What Is Framework?

Framework refers to the frame to which the manufacturers attach the chain-link fabric. Generally, the framework has three components:

  • Top rail
  • Line posts
  • Terminal posts
