Chain link is a popular fencing option for a wide variety of usages. It's easy to erect and offers a cost effective method for securing your property.
This type of fence is available commonly in heights varying between three and twelve feet and made from galvanised or green PVC coated steel wire, woven into a zig zag pattern to create the familiar diamond shaped fence.
The reason chain link fencing is so popular is mostly due to its relative low cost and the ease of which it can be installed. A handy person could install a chain link fence themselves without too much trouble using a how-to guide, and without needing to hire a professional fencer. Usually concrete and angle iron are the posts used with chain link, but timber posts can be used too, if preferred. It also, being a transparent style of fence, does not block out sunlight, and the open style makes it ideal for particularly windy and exposed areas.
