Aluminum Chain Link Fencing

Aluminum chain link fencing resists corrosion and weathering. It can last for as long as 25 years. Aluminum chain link is commonly used around schools and commercial properties because of its flexibility and durability. Aluminum coated chain link is also available. Pick aluminum if you need to build a fence in a corrosive environment.

Zinc Galvanized Wire Fencing

Fencing coated with zinc can be galvanized either before or after the chain is woven. Zinc is the most common coating for a chain link fence. Galvanizing before weaving gives the wire a more consistent, clean appearance. Galvanized wire increases the durability of chain link fences. This type of fence looks great in backyards and around athletic fields. These fences can last for years with a minimum of maintenance.

Vinyl Coated Wire Fencing

Ready to play ball? This type of fence is commonly seen around baseball fields, children’s play areas and residential properties. It’s available in a variety of colors to match or enhance landscaping and buildings. The vinyl coating looks pleasing and protects the metal from weathering. Vinyl coating can be customized for both color and gauge.
