Installation

Chain link fences come with a skeleton structure made out of rails and posts that are held together with caps. Once the skeleton has been installed, a chain link mesh is set into it by being stretched tightly across the skeleton. A metal bar, known as a tension bar is installed into the end part of the mesh and then attached to end posts with the tension bands. Here in this guide, you will learn how to set up a chain link fence by using these parts.

Typically, mesh is available in the market in rolls of about 4, 5 or 6 feet high. When it comes to the mesh material, steel is preferred due to its strength. Compared to steel, aluminum mesh is much lighter.

To carry out a chain link fence installation project, you will need the following tools and materials:
