Chain Link Fence Atlanta Metro
Chain link fences are the most widely installed security fences for commercial applications. The height of a chain link fence varies from 4′ to 12′, and taller for special applications, but the most common chain link fence height is 6′ chain link with 1′ of barbed wire on top making the overall height 7′. Every chain link fence that Spectrum Fence constructs is made of 4 components: corner posts, line posts, the chain link fabric, and a top rail.
The Pipe Components of a Chain Link Fence
Corner posts- the posts at the end or outside corners of a chain link fence- typically have an outside diameter of 2 7/8″. Spectrum Fence sets these posts in concrete 36″ deep in the ground to ensure your chain link fence is stable and secure. The second main component of chain link fences are line posts. The standard distance between line posts is 10 feet, and each line post is set in concrete 24” deep into the ground. Line posts used in heavy commercial applications have an outside diameter of 2 3/8″. For lighter applications, Spectrum Fence uses line posts with an outside diameter of 1 ⅞”. The top rail of a chain link fence is made from a 1 5/8″ pipe that runs continuous on top of the fence. The top rail adds stability to the chain link fabric secured to it with wire ties. The three pipe components- the corner posts, line posts, and top rail- are schedule 40 as a standard, but Spectrum Fence can value engineer your fence by using a lesser schedule pipe without affecting the integrity of your fence. Spectrum Fence exclusively uses galvanized pipes to provide our customers with a quality fence that will last for a long time.
