Chain Link Fences
Chain link is a popular fence choice because of its affordability, ease of installation and transparency.
Chain link fencing is among the most widely used fencing, a popular alternative to wood, pvc or iron fencing because of its affordability and durability.
Chain link fencing is made from galvanized steel wire woven together in the recognizable diamond pattern. The steel wire and diamond pattern provides the strength. The pattern also gives the fence some flexibility, providing give when a force is applied.
The woven nature of the galvanized chain link fence also offers a clear line of sight through it, which means it provides both security and a sense of open space.
The galvanizing protects the fence from the elements, extending the life of the chain link and keeping it looking new longer, particularly in the Minneapolis and St. Paul region.
The fence can also be covered in green or black vinyl, further protecting the steel from the elements while adding a decorative appearance.
Once the chain link fence is installed correctly there is little or no ongoing maintenance required to keep it looking new for years. The fence can be hosed off using soap and water to keep it shiny and clean.
A chain link fence can be installed with a variety of gauges, or thickness of the metal mesh used in the fence. The thicker the gauge the longer it can be galvanized during manufacturing, making the fence less susceptible to corrosion or rust.
It is flexible and comes in a variety of heights, making its installation less cumbersome than other fence options.
