Link -- For all reasons and all seasons
most people, chain link is chain link. But here at Metro Fence,
we know there really is a difference. That's why we carry only the
best product available.
chain link looks the same... at first! But after a while inferior
material begins to deteriorate. The lower tensile strength of substandard
chain link means it is more easily bent and damaged. Inferior coatings
allow the chain link to rust and corrode... sometimes after just
a short period of time! The galvanized coating hasn't protected
the inner metals, and the fence begins to show the signs of stress
hot dip galvanizing process ensures a heavy protective zinc coating
on all surfaces of your chain link fence, even the cut ends.

Chain Link Fencing! Leaves the competition in the rust!
Many many manufacturers make their chain link by galvanizing the
wire before it is woven into actual fence fabric.
This fencing, referred to as GBW (galvanized before weaving) is
generally manufactured to the least demanding specifications, with
little thought to the product longevity.
compliance with the American Society for Testing and Materials Standards,
our product is galvanized after weaving (GAW). This
ensures the steel base is completely coated with up to five times
the amount of zinc. Through a special process, the extra vital zinc
adds only a fraction to the actual cost of the fence, but ensures
that your fence fabric will last many times longer than our competitors'
typical commercially coated GBW fencing.
GAW fence fabric meets or exceeds the American Society for Testing
and Materials standard specification for zinc-coated steel chain
link fence fabric (ASTM A 392) for gauges and size of mesh specified.
