Galvanized Chain Link Fencing

Chain link fabric (a.k.a. “wire”) is manufactured by Master Halco at several US locations.

Galvanized Before Weaving (GBW)

In this process, the wire is pre-galvanized before it is formed into a fabric. The weaving process creates an exposed cut end that will lack coating and be more apt to some minor rust in wet and severe weather conditions.

Galvanized After Weaving (GAW)

This process forms or weaves chain-link into a fabric first, and then soaks it in a large galvanized bath which adheres the zinc coating. This ensures that all the wire is coated, even the cut ends created during the weaving process.

Aluminized

Aluminum coated steel chain link fence fabric is made by cold drawing good commercial grade steel rod into wire of the appropriate diameter. The steel rod from which the wire is drawn is produced by the open hearth, electric furnace or basic oxygen process. The coating process consists of passing the cleaned wire through a molten bath of aluminum metal.

Selvage Options

Selvage describes how the ends of the chain link wires are finished for the top and bottom of the fabric. Knuckle means that the ends of the wires are folded over each other. Twist means the wires are twisted together to form pointed prongs.

Wire Gauges Available

Mesh Sizes Available

Residential fabric uses larger mesh sizes and smaller gauges, and commercial/industrial uses smaller mesh sizes and larger gauge diameters. The smallest mesh sizes, from 1-1/4” to 3/8”, are High Security/Mini-Mesh.

Color Chain Link Fencing

Spectra

The galvanized steel core wire for producing extruded PVC coated steel chain link fence fabric is produced by cold-drawing good commercial grade steel rod into wire of the appropriate diameter. The steel rod from which the wire is drawn is produced by the open hearth, electric furnace or basic oxygen process. The galvanized coating is produced by passing the cleaned wire through a bath of molten zinc which conforms to ASTM B6. The extruded PVC coating is produced by extruding PVC at a coating thickness of 0.015” (.38mm) – 0.025” (0.64 mm) over a galvanized core wire.

Spectra Bond

Extruded bonded vinyl is a better alternative to simple extruded wire. With extruded bonded wire, the extruding process is taken one step further: an adhesive is applied added to the wire before being extruded with the vinyl coating. This seals the vinyl to the wire to bond provides greater protection against nature.

Permafused

Fused and Adhered vinyl coating. Coated using a polyolefin coating, the galvanized wire is first heated, then coated, causing the wire and the plastic to bond together, creating a better protective coating to prevent moisture from penetrating to the steel core of the wire.
