Chain link fencing has been a cost effective solution but also comes with a range of styles to work with your garden. The main benefits are:
The height of the fence for domestic use is usually between 1-1.8 meters tall.
Taller options are available which are used for sports courts and there are options for commercial use.
The fencing comes in a couple of finishes:
The chain link fencing can be attached to wooden, metal or tubular posts, at no more than 10' centres, that are concreted into the ground and strutted where necessary for additional strength (end and corner posts).
One of the biggest considerations for chain link fencing are the posts.
There are two options:
This is the sturdiest option and involves concreting the posts into the ground, but not always the most attractive option. Corner posts can have a straining post attached which are diagonally concreted into the ground for additional strength.
These posts can be concreted or driven into the ground. Straining posts must be concreted into the ground to provide additional strength for the fence. Intermediate posts can be driven into the ground.
A chain link fence will last approximately 20 years for galvanised steel and a PVC coated fence will last even longer.
As well as being a cheap fencing option, it as an excellent choice for exposed areas as it is relatively unaffected by the wind.
