Aluminum Fences For Commercial and Residential Properties

Aluminum Mesh Fabric

If you are looking for the next best thing and want a chain link fence, an aluminum one is the right choice. Aluminum chain link fences are more durable and long-lasting than their galvanized steel counterparts. Just like galvanized steel chain link fences, aluminum fences have various fabric and selvage options to help you customize your fence to your liking.

Aluminum Chain Link Fence Mesh Fabric Options

You can choose from fabric sizes, including 1” to 2” mesh sizes. Along with this, these fabric size options come with gauge options as well. The gauge of your fence describes the thickness of the wire, otherwise known as the wire diameter. The gauge is most likely measured by inches. The smaller the gauge number, the thicker the chain link mesh fabric is.

Selvage Options For Your Aluminum Chain Link Fence

The most common types of selvage contain three options: knuckle/knuckle, knuckle/twist, and twist/twist. The selvage is the finish of the ends of your chain link fence. If you notice the top of a chain link fence, the fabric at the top is twisted in a certain way. The twist is when the wire is twisted together, and knuckle/knuckle is described as bent over fence mesh. Usually, knuckle selvage is used in residential areas. Twisted selvage is often used in chain link fences requiring more security. However, whichever option you choose, ensure your mesh size is not less than 2 inches if you use twisted selvage.
