Chain Link Fencing
Commercial chain link is great option for a slightly stronger fence than the light commercial. Our commercial grade chain link uses 11ga fence fabric and is highly recommended for standard commercial applications. It has more galvanizing applied to the materials than the residential and light commercial fabric, increasing strength and longevity. The framework can always be upgraded to a heavier schedule 40 pipe (posts and top rail).
Light Commercial Chain Link
Light commercial chain link is a better option for chain fence applications. Light commercial grade uses 11.5ga fence fabric compared to the 12.5ga residential fabric. We use a larger diameter line post of 1 7/8" for light commercial with a .065 wall thickness. D&C installs a larger top rail of 1 5/8" x .065 for light commercial grade chain link. This grade of chain link fence is highly recommended for residential applications in harsher climates or with larger dogs. It has more galvanizing applied to the materials than the residential increasing strength and longevity. Feel free to ask for this option on your estimate.
INDUSTRIAL CHAIN LINK
Industrial Grade Chain Link fencing is very heavy-duty chain link fence that is most often installed in very harsh environments, heavy commercial properties, refineries, specked jobs, airports, military bases, etc. Many standard commercial applications call for this type of fencing as well. Industrial grade chain fencing suits well for security because it is a much heavier material. The typical fence fabric used is 9ga with 1.2 oz of galvanized zinc coating. The galvanizing can be increased to 2oz coating if desired. Typical line posts for industrial grade chain link fencing is 1 7/8" in diameter or 2 3/8" in diameter depending on what is specified or requested. The top rail is 1 5/8"in diameter and all framework installed is schedule 40 pipe.
Chain Link Options
Vinyl Covered Chain Link Fence
Vinyl Privacy Slats and Windscreens
D&C Fence offers a wide variety of privacy slats for chain link fencing. We have color charts and samples that will fit almost any application for existing fences or new fences. Chain link privacy slats come in many various styles, from the basic ribbed slat to bottom locking slats. Privacy slats have varying percentages of privacy. They are available from 75 percent to 90 plus percent.
Windscreen applied to the outside of the chain link fence can be used to help add privacy and slow wind flow. It is generally used at tennis courts and baseball fields but can be used in many other applications. It also comes in many different colors and can have logos or writing applied to the screen.
Commercial and Industrial Upgrades
This is a great add on to any commercial or industrial grade chain link fence. Typically, this is added to the top of a new fence being installed but can be added to an existing fence. The standard is to install 3 strands of heavy duty class 3 galvanized barbed wire to the top of the fence using 45 degree barbed arms or vertical barbed arms.
This option is installed for additional security of the property. Razor ribbon comes in many sizes and grades. The ribbon can be added to the bottom or top of a chain linked fence and is installed in circular patterns.
