Building Chainlink Fence? Read this Article to Know About Fencing Cost

by Tata Wiron Steel wire manufacturer

A chainlink fence (also known as wire netting, wire-mesh fence, chain-wire fence or diamond-mesh fence) is a woven barrier consisting of galvanized or LLDPE-coated steel wire. The wires run vertically and are bent into a zig-zag pattern, with each "zig" hooking with the wire on one side and each "zag" hooking with the wire on the other. This creates the distinctive diamond pattern found in this type of fence.


Weaving is the process of making chain-link fencing. A metal wire sometimes galvanized to prevent corrosion, is drawn along a spinning long and flat blade, resulting in a somewhat flattened spiral. The spiral continues to rotate past the blade, winding its way through the previous spiral, which is already a part of the fence. The spiral is severed near the blade when it reaches the far end of the fence. The spiral is then pressed flat and the entire fence is raised in preparation for the next cycle. The second spiral's end overlaps the end of every first spiral. Both ends are clamped and twisted by the machine. The links are now permanent.


Setting posts into the ground and attaching the fence to them is the process of installing a chain-link fence. Steel tubing, wood, or concrete posts can be driven into the ground or placed in concrete. End, corner, or gate posts, sometimes known as "terminal posts," must be put in concrete footings or otherwise fixed to avoid leaning under the tension of a stretched fence. Posts placed between the terminal posts are known as "line posts," and they are spaced no more than 10 feet apart. The fence is attached at one end, stretched, then attached at the other, with the excess easily removed by "unscrewing" a wire.

In many circumstances, the installer stretches a bottom tension wire, also known as "coil wire," between terminal posts to help minimize in and out movement at the bottom of the chain-link mesh between posts. Most chain-link fences have top horizontal rails, which are optional if the terminal posts are properly braced. In this case, a top tension wire could be employed. Bottom rails can be used in place of bottom tension wires, while intermediate horizontal rails are frequently used on fences 10 feet or taller. Finally, the installer uses steel or aluminum wire with a hook on one end called "Fence Ties" to secure the fence to the line posts and rails. The bottom tension wire should be connected to the line posts, and the chain-link mesh should be "hog ringed" to the tension wire 2' apart.

Chainlink fencing cost per acre

The cost per acre for chainlink fencing will vary according to the type and quality of posts and barbed wires utilized. Live fences with prickly plants will be more practical in some regions. After you have an estimate with a breakdown of the costs of supplies, labor, and so on, you can go to the market and enquire about the price of the materials and hire labor on a contract basis to execute the work.
