For years chain link fencing has become very popular due to its relatively low cost, open weave, and the ability to create any size fence. Chain-link usually is produced in 20 rod and 50 ft rolls that can be joined by unscrewing one end of the wires and then screwing it back with a new piece adjoined.
They come in heights of 3′, 3.5′, 4′, 5′, 6′, 7′, 8, 10, 12, even though you can build what you want. Mesh gauges are 9, 11, and 11.5. Mesh length can also vary based on what’s needed, but the most common is 2″. This type of fencing is popular in tennis courts, ball parks, oil fields, and more.
Installing chain link fence is something we know a lot about. We have had years of experience installing fencing to ensure a quality job. The installation of fence involves setting posts into the ground and then the fence would be attached. The posts are usually set with steel tubing, timber or concrete. Sometime we have to drive the post into the ground and/or set them in concrete. End, Corner, or Gate posts, or also referred as terminal posts are concrete anchored to ensure no leaning will take place once tension is set on the fencing.
Line posts are the posts that are set between the terminal posts and do not exceed 10 feet. The fence is attached at one end, stretched, and then attached to the other end. After that the excess is unscrewed from the fence. After this the installer would then tie the fence to the line posts with aluminum wire. Many times, we will install a bottom tension wire to help keep the bottom of the fence from being lifted. Fences that are 10 feet or more in height will require a bottom rail instead of tension wire, and intermediate horizontal rails may be added.
