First, and foremost on your mind, is security. Building a chain link fence will keep out all the bad guys, except the most determined, and unless you deal in fine jewels or hard currency you probably don’t have too many of those targeting your business. Chain link fences can be built to heights up to 20 feet (3 to 12 feet are standard) to discourage anyone from entering your property. Chain link fences also can keep out wildlife, such as deer or foxes, that could cause damage to your property.
Building a chain link also provides a strong barrier against vehicles accidentally driving through, which could be a concern if you are located on a busy highway or street.
If security is a major concern, we can work with stronger-gauge steel and add tactical obstacles and entanglements to prevent climbing fences. Smaller mesh sizes also are available to decrease penetration and increase security.
Building a chain link fence is your most economical option when it comes to perimeter fencing. The average cost of chain link fencing in the metro D.C. area is $16 to $28 per linear foot installed, but can vary by materials, gates, environment, etc.
Many options are available for your chain link fence that can make it look more attractive and suitable for your property. Four types of chain link fence you can select from are:
- Galvanized:Wire fabricated from steel is coated with zinc, making a durable finish. This type of chain link fence is commonly used by federal and local governments and has many commercial uses.
- Aluminized:This chain features a steel core coated with aluminum to provide rust and corrosion resistance. Considered self-healing, this fencing will last a long time without losing its aesthetics.
- All Color System:This vinyl-coated fence and framework is widely popular for commercial use because of its color appeal and durability. The fencing comes in green, black and brown but custom colors also are available.
- Vinyl Coated Fence on Galvanized Frame:The popular black, green and brown vinyl coated fence can be used with galvanized framing as a more economical option. The fence retains its corrosion resistance and durability.
If you’d like to keep eyeballs off your business as well, you can add color matching slats to the vinyl-coated fences to provide that extra layer of privacy without the additional cost of a wooden or vinyl privacy fence.
You also have a wide variety of options available for gates for your chain link fence. Whether you need simple swing gates, cantilevered slide gates or pedestrian walk gates, our designers can work with you to get the perfect solution to your gating needs. We can review access points, security needs and more to find the most economical solution that will fit your business’s needs. Automated gate options also are available to ensure security.
