What are they made of?
Most modern chain link fences are woven metal barriers that are treated with metal or vinyl coatings to ward off rust and to ensure they remain durable. Chain link fences also come in a variety of styles. Recent innovations give you many more options for color by using a new vinyl chain link design. This color-coated fence can be customized to match a current palette in a neighborhood or commercial setting, or it can just be a stylish alternative to the traditional metal chain link fence.
Wood, polyethylene, and aluminum slats are also available. These can slide in between the chain link to create a wall effect. It is a great way to update the look of your fence without having to take it out and install a new one. It is also a good option if you want your chain link fence to provide more privacy or security on a budget. Slats are often used in commercial chain link fences around waste areas to hide dumpsters from customers or around pools and backyards of homeowners who do not want to feel like they are always on display.
