A chain link fence Kissimmee FL uses a variety of parts to create the fence. The fabric or chains attach to a tension bar on the sides. Poles hold the fence upright by securing into the ground. The tension bars attach to the poles with brace bands. A top rail runs along the top between the poles or through a loop cap for longer runs. Caps sit neatly on top of the poles to prevent debris and water entering the poles. Add gates to allow for easier access to inside the fenced area.
The mesh or wire of the chain link is called the fabric. Spirals are woven together to create the signature diamond pattern. The standard 2” pattern uses a #9 gauge wire. However, the gauge of the wire can range from 6 to 11-1/2 depending on the diameter needed. Temporary fencing uses higher gauged wire, while common applications usually use 6 or 9.
