Chain Link

Chain link fencing has been the product of choice for security fencing for over 60 years because of its strength, corrosion resistance, "see through capabilities," ease of installation, versatility, variety of product selection and value. A chain link fence is one of the primary building blocks for a facility’s perimeter security system.

Chain link fencing

  • Identifies the legal boundary of the outermost limits of a facility
  • Assists in controlling and screening authorized entries into a secured area by deterring entry elsewhere along the boundary
  • Supports surveillance, detection, assessment, and other security functions by providing a zone for installing intrusion detection equipment and closed-circuit television (CCTV)
  • Deters casual intruders from penetrating a secured area by presenting a barrier that requires an overt action to enter
  • Demonstrates the intent of an intruder by their overt action of gaining entry
  • Causes a delay to obtain access to a facility, thereby increasing the possibility of detection
  • Creates a psychological deterrent
  • Reduces the number of security guards required and frequency of use for each post
  • Optimizes the use of security personnel while enhancing the capabilities for detection and apprehension of unauthorized individuals
  • Demonstrates a corporate concern for facility security
  • Provides a cost effective method of protecting facilities

Chain link (PVC) – Color is now being demanded in ever-increasing proportions over galvanized chain link fencing. Facility owners and managers wishing to retain the well-known endurance of chain link systems while providing a perimeter that blends attractively with its surroundings are finding color systems to be the answer.

Chain link with slats – If your desire is beauty, privacy screening or a windbreak, slats are what you need. Slats add extra security to your chain link fence. Slats add 70% to 95% privacy to your home or business. Slats don't just give you privacy but also make it more difficult for intruders to climb your chain link fence. If an intruder were to try and cut through the fence, they would also have to cut through the durable slats. Some types of slats lock into place at the bottom, making them more difficult to take out. Slats come in all different types of colors and styles. Slats can be plastic, fiberglass or aluminum and can be installed vertically, horizontally or even diagonally.
