Chain-link Fence Company near me
The setup of chain-link fence includes setting posts into the ground and connecting the fence to them. The posts may be steel tubing, wood or concrete and might be driven into the ground or set in concrete. End, corner or gate posts, frequently described as "terminal posts", need to be set in concrete footing or otherwise anchored to prevent leaning under the tension of a stretched fence. Posts set in between the terminal posts are called "line posts" and are set at intervals not to go beyond 10 feet. The installer connects the fence at one end, stretches it, and attaches at the other, easily removing the excess by "unscrewing" a wire. In many cases, the installer extends a bottom stress wire, in some cases referred to as "coil wire", in between terminal posts to help lessen the in and out movement that takes place at the bottom of the chain-link mesh between posts. Leading horizontal rails are utilized on most chain-link fence, although not required if the terminal posts are braced properly. A leading tension wire might be utilized in this circumstance. Bottom rails may be added in lieu of bottom tension wires, and for taller fences, 10 feet or more, intermediate horizontal rails are typically added. Lastly, the installer ties the fence to the line posts and rails with steel or aluminum wire with a hook on one end called "Fence Ties". The bottom tension wire need to be protected to the line posts and the chain-link mesh "hog ringed" to the stress wire 2' on center. For more information about a new chain-link fence contact us !
