Chain Link Fence Parts Catalog

Schedule 40, or Standard weight, as it is often called, is an industrial grade pipe used for commercial and industrial chain link fence projects.  We carry a full line of fittings for both sizes including gate hinges, latches, and bands. Custom cut sizes are available upon request.

Terminal posts for chain link fence are typically 2-1/2' longer than the height of fence being installed for residential and 36" for commercial, i.e. a 6' high fence has 8 1/2' long terminal posts for residential fences. Chain link line posts are typically 2' longer than the height of fence being installed for residential and 2-1/2' for commercial, i.e. a 6' high fence has 8' long line posts for residential fences. 

Post length does not always correspond with footer depth. The footer should extend below the post to frost depth. A commercial fence with line posts 8-1/2' long would provide about 2'9" below ground. In many northern climates, the frost depth could be 3' or more. Pour footers to that frost depth and suspend the post in the concrete. This can be accomplished simply by pouring the concrete into the hole first and sticking the post to depth immediately afterward. With a proper concrete mix, the post will not require bracing to stay at the proper height.
