Chain link fencing is one of the most widely-used and cost-effective containment solutions. But did you know it has a distinguished history? First manufactured in 1844 by Barnard, Bishop and Barnard – an English company – the original design was based on cloth weaving techniques to weave together strips of wire. Chain links came to America in 1891, when Anchor Fencing imported chain link fence-making machines from Belgium.

Chain link fencing is usually used for containment, but doesn’t provide privacy. Just like iron fencing, chain link fencing provides you with security while remaining open for visibility. In cases where people want both chain link and privacy, we can install more security and privacy slats made of vinyl or painted wood.
Styles and Looks
Chain links are more versatile than people often imagine, and allows for customization which can enhance the curb appeal of your Fort Worth home.
Typical heights vary from three to twelve feet tall if you prefer taller fences. A home fence could be as short as three feet tall, while tennis courts and industrial fencing could be 10 – 20 feet tall.
The Gauge size can also vary based on the need. The lower the gauge, the stronger the wire. The typical range for gauge sizes is 13 to 6, with 13 being the lightest – used for temporary fencing – and 6 being the strongest. People usually choose 11 gauge for residential fencing. The heavier 9 gauge is used for most commercial projects
Stainless steel is the most common material for a chain link fence. Aluminum is another option, which requires less maintenance and is easier to move, but not as strong as stainless steel.
The purpose of your fence will determine the necessary grid size. For example, a baseball backstop requires a grid size that can contain a baseball. Smaller grid size is generally sturdier and used for higher security and industrial fencing.
You can get chain link coated with colored polyester, PVC or vinyl. These coatings increase your fence’s UV resistance, limiting corrosion and damage. Coatings also allow for color; green and black can help a fence blend into the background.
Simple and Low Maintenance
Little to no maintenance is the charm of chain link. A simple hosing off and a dab of soap make most chain link fences look like new. Vinyl wrapping can be added to make a waterproof fence that will outlast many other fence types.
