This immaculate blend of strength and flexibility makes chain link fences exceptionally durable.

FAQs For the Benefits of Chain link Fences

  1. How do I keep animals from going under the chain link fence?

In case you notice stray animals getting access to your property from under the fence, your best bet is to install a tension wire that stretches across, from under the fence line. Using twisted ends at the bottom can also deter the animals from coming under.

  1. How far apart do chain link fence posts need to be?

More often than not, chain link fence posts are rather sturdy. This implies that the posts can be anywhere between 4 to 10 feet  apart from each other. That said, it is always advisable to follow the fence provider’s instructions as far as spacing and installation is concerned.  

  1. Is it necessary for chain link fence posts to be cemented?

While chain link fence posts can be installed without the use of concrete, it is not advisable to do so. In order to ensure that the fence is well stretched and stays in place for years at end, it is crucial that the fence posts are set in concrete footings, especially at ends and corners.

  1. What are the Coating Options Available for Chain Link Fences?

Chain link fences are available in numerous coating options, based on the site conditions as well as the environmental factors around the property. However, when it comes to ensuring little to no damage from rusting or corrosion, the most preferred coating alternatives include –

  • Zinc 
  • EcoZal (Zn 90% + Al 10%) 
  • PVC 
  • Glued PVC 
  • Fusion Bonded 
  • PA6

In addition to ensuring that the fence is completely protected against corrosion, these coatings also offer an enhanced aesthetic appeal to the fence.
