Chain Link Fence Fabric provides exceptional security and protection
in commercial, industrial, institutional, recreational and residential
fencing applications. GAW also provides the best protection against
corrosion in even the most severe coastal industrial environments.
Hot dip zinc galvanizing is a simple process with over 200 years
of proven effectiveness in millions of applications worldwide.
are other zinc galvanizing processes and other metallic coatings.
None surpass GAW in durability and protection. It's a premium product
providing superior corrosion-and rust-resistance that doesn't cost
a premium price.
Importance of GAW
fabric is the only chain link fabric that's coated after weaving,
ensuring that all surfaces of the base metal are protected. With
GAW coatings, you have complete protection against rust and corrosion
and an additional after coating treatment is applied to prevent
white rust and early deterioration. With any pre-coated wire, the
weaving process leaves the twist and knuckle tips bare from trimming.
Cut ends may be dipped in other materials, but they are no substitute
in protection for the thorough zinc coating of the GAW process.
Durability of GAW
Fabric galvanized after weaving is manufactured to the demanding
requirements of ASTM specification A 392, which offers two classes
of coating: Class 1-1.2 ounces (366 g/m2)
of zinc coating per sq. ft.; and Class 2-2.0 ounces (610 g/M2) Of
zinc coating per sq. ft. The effective service life of a fabric
is directly related to the coating thickness-the thicker the coating,
the longer the life. A Class 2 GAW coating is unsurpassed among
metallic chain link fence coatings in providing long-term barrier
and cathodic protection. That's a value you can measure.
