Chain link fence, also referred to as chain-wire fence, cyclone fence, hurricane fence, or diamond mesh fence , is one of the most popular choices of fence for both light residential to heavy commercial fence applications. It is woven by a way that the wires run vertically and are bent into a zig-zag pattern so that each "zig" hooks with the wire immediately on one side and each "zag" with the wire immediately on the other. This forms the characteristic diamond pattern fence.
Chain link fence is most commonly available galvanized which is silver in color. Chain link fence fabric is typically produced in 50' rolls’ length(15.24m), and the most popular type is 6, 9, 11 gauge wire with 2x2 inches(50x50mm) mesh size, and it is ideal for industrial and commercial fence applications. The fabric is galvanized with a 1.2 oz.(366 grams) coating meets ASTM A 392-03 Class I and we also offer some sizes with a 2.0 oz.(610 grams) zinc coating meets ASTM A 392 Type I (Class II).

Although galvanized silver chain link fences are very popular, many customers have chosen color chain link fence systems to accentuate siding, roofing, and trim colors on houses and businesses. There are two types of vinyl coating(PVC coating) based on the thickness: extruded and adhered and fused and bonded. Dark green(RAL 6005) chain link fence is the most popular one among a lot of colors. Extruded and bonded chain link, always refer to as 'heavy' vinyl chain link fence is also an option.
Extruded vinyl coated chain link fence is by far the most popular kind of chain link fence available in colors. It is typically the least expensive too. However, some quality conscious customers also prefer fused and bonded fence fabric.
