It is also an affordable option for families looking to contain children and pets in residential neighborhoods.
If you’re looking to install a fence to house your dog or other animals, chain link fencing will do the trick nicely. In fact, K9 of Mine recommends chain link fencing as “one of the more affordable options,” adding that “they’re extremely durable.”
The steel wire, woven into a diamond mesh “fabric” used in chain link fencing is resilient and springs back to its original form upon impact, making it excellent at weathering storms and resisting damage from other sources. Chain link is strong, durable and relatively unobtrusive, making it a good investment for your property.

Factors to Consider when purchasing a chain link fence
The thickness of the wire is related to the strength of the fabric. The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire, and the stronger the fence.
Aluminum-coated wire is the best, in our opinion, because it is smooth and resists rust. Galvanized wire is often specified for commercial fences and is quite serviceable. Plastic- or vinyl-coated chain link has a softer look than metallic-coated fencing.
Galvanized fence systems are available in a wide variety of wire sizes, meshes and heights. All fabric, post, rails, and structural components are galvanized (zinc coated) for long life. Zinc’s natural shielding properties protect the steel to give you a fence that is strong and corrosion resistant.
Aluminum coating has the unique quality of forming its own protective oxide film immediately upon exposure to the atmosphere. This oxide film, which is not water soluble, protects the material from further oxidation. If the film is removed by abrasion, it immediately re-forms and continues to protect the material.
Refers to the size of the “diamond” opening. Residential chain link usually has a 2-1/4″ mesh size. Commercial mesh standard is 2″. Greater strength and security are available with 1″ or smaller openings. The smaller the mesh size, the more difficult it is to climb or cut the chain link.
This term refers to the qualities of the wire used in weaving chain link. Strength. A 10-gauge hi-tensile wire makes a stronger fence than a 9-gauge chain-link woven with a lower tensile wire.
