Chain Link Fences

Galvanized Chain Link Fence

Galvanized Before Weave (GBW) or “Pre-Galv” wire has the attractiveness and durability of aluminized at around the same cost as traditional chain link. The pre-galvanizing process eliminates the occurrence of unsightly zinc “icicles”, making installation easier and safer.
If you’ve ever cut your hand or caught your shirt on a chain link fence, then you know that the jagged little protrusions left over from the galvanizing process can be a pain, or even dangerous. That’s why Sharon Fence is proud to be a supplier of Galvanized Before Weave (GBW) wire, a cleaner, more consistent alternative to traditional Galvanized After Weave (GAW) Wire.
Just like the name says, GBW wire is hot dip galvanized strand by strand, resulting in a smooth finish every time. In contrast, with GAW, the whole woven mesh is galvanized, causing drippage, zinc “icicles”, and a frozen mesh that can be hard to stretch during installation.

Galvanized chain link fences are a great option for

  • Playgrounds
  • Ball Parks
  • Kennels
  • Residences
  • Schools

Vinyl Coated Fabric

Architectural Color Coated Fabric

Architectural color coated chain link systems have become more popular as an economical way to provide a visually appealing barrier. These systems blend into the surroundings and provide minimal obstruction to the natural scenery. Our vinyl coated fabric helps our chain link fences stay strong for decades in even the toughest of weather.

Different Grades of Ornamental Color Coated Fabric:

  • Residential
    • Residential fabric is usually an extruded product with the option of 2 gauges:
      • Standard Residential: 9-gauge finish with a 12-gauge steel core (Good)
      • Heavy Residential: 8-gauge finish with an 11-gauge steel core (Best)
        • The Heavy Residential has a heavy gauge steel core and will be more durable for applications that involve more activity such as providing a boundary for pets or children playing sports involving a ball that may hit the fence.
  • Commercial/Industrial
    • Commercial fabric is normally Fused and Bonded with an 8-gauge finish and 9-gauge steel core. 9-gauge steel is the standard for commercial fencing. It becomes an 8-gauge finish after the Ornamental color coat is applied.
  • Standard Colors
    • Black
    • Brown
    • Green
    • Custom colors are available
