Is Chain Link available in different colours?

The most popular choice is Black because it blends in with most surroundings. But other colours include: White, Brown, and Green. (Available through special order) It’s important to note that city by-laws require chain link mesh match all framework in colour.

 

Do you also offer privacy slats for the Chain Link?

We do offer polyethylene privacy slats, but it should be noted that standard residential Chain Link fence systems are not typically designed to hold the snow and wind loads that is incurred when adding privacy slats. We strongly recommend that people who are looking at Chain Link for privacy because of the attractive price should research alternatives first (i.e., wood or vinyl fences). We will allow for a stronger frame if this is required.

 

Is the Chain Link available in different heights and sizes?

Chain Link is manufactured in many different heights, wire gauges and diamond sizes.

 

How do I know which gauge and diamond size are best for my home?

Typically, the size of the framework only changes with the height of the fence – 6’ high will require stronger framework than 5’ high. There are other factors that may affect requirements such as proximity to street plowing and pool by-law regulations. Our consultants will guide you through this process.
