There are a multitude of options available when
choosing a chain link fence; color is one. Although galvanized silver chain link fences
are very popular, colored chain link fences have grown in popularity over the years. Many
have chosen color chain link fence systems to accentuate siding, roofing, and trim colors
on houses and businesses. Some choose a colored chain link fence system to blend into
natural surroundings. Another popular choice for fence is to choose an all aluminum ornamental fence or vinyl fence in the front
of a property and a chain link fence in the back. This provides superb cub appeal and
function at an affordable price. Check out our

coated chain link fence catalog for samples. Vinyl coated chain link fences are
typically very smooth and soft to the touch compared with galvanized wire. Consider this
advantage when fencing a backyard where children may have the tendency to handle the
Extruded vinyl coated chain link fence is by far the
most popular kind of chain link fence available in colors. It is typically the least
expensive too. Black chain link fence is the most popular with dark green and dark brown
also being available. White chain link is an option, however is generally special order
and may take longer to receive. Extruded and bonded chain link, or what we sometimes refer
to as 'heavy' vinyl chain link fence is also an option. In layman's terms, extruded vinyl
when cut with a knife will peel like a banana. However it does not peel easy and it is
quite durable. Extruded and bonded chain link is adhered to the steel wire on the other
hand and would have to be cut off much like peeling a potato. Extruded and bonded 'heavy'
vinyl chain link fence is the more expensive option of the two. Read about 8 gauge extruded and bonded chain
link fence here. For commercial and industrial chain link fences in colors, consider
using a 9 gauge steel core wire (6 gauge finish) available from Hoover Fence on a per
quote basis. Contact us here.
Chain link fence wire in black, green, and brown may be
stretched on a galvanized frame which is silver in color, or a matching black, green, or
brown framework system. Once you consider using a color chain link fence system, you will
need to also consider whether you wish to have the framework in a matching color. Perhaps
as much as 60% of our customer choose a silver galvanized frame. There is an insignificant
price difference between 11 gauge
galvanized chain link and 9 gauge extruded vinyl coated chain link fence fabric. Note:
gauge of wire is 'finish size' inclusive of vinyl coating in this instance. These two
materials are similar in grade and thickness. The price difference is insignificant to
where you could say they are practically the same price. Once you choose a colored
framework system though over galvanized, you will see a price difference of perhaps as
much as 15-25%. Please note when framework is coated in a matching color, all chain link
fence fittings including bands, caps, tension bars, gates, hinges and latches are also
usually color coated to match.

Chain link fence fabric is typically sold in 50' rolls with nine
rolls per pallet (450'). We offer a discount on full pallet purchases of 9 gauge
extruded vinyl coated chain link fence fabric (wire only). We recommend ordering a few
extra feet than needed. When more than 50' of fence is needed for a stretch, rolls
can be woven together easily. Chain link is easily cut to size by removing one link.
We may sell partial rolls or chain link fence fabric by the foot
(some heights only - based on availability) in the event you need a small piece to patch
with, or need gate fabric. There will be a $10 service fee per cut and the same price per
foot will apply. Please call to inquire about special requests.
Note about gauges: The smaller the
number, the heavier the fabric; henceforth 9ga. is heavier than 11ga.. We recommend 11ga.
for residential jobs and 9ga. for commercial jobs. Heavier gauges are not only
stronger, but have a better finish; the heavier the gauge the longer it may be 'hot-dip
galvanized' to prevent rust and corrosion. Vinyl coated chain link is sold by the
finish gauge. 9 ga. chain link vinyl coated actually has a thinner inner steel wire.
It is considered 9 gauge once it has been coated, although the inner steel wire is nearest
