Question:
What gauge fence do you recommend for dog kennels?

Applicable Products:
Chain link fence.

Reply:
11 gauge fabric is the thinnest fabric we use for residential chain link projects.   Although there are lighter gauges available, we have found this to be the lightest which holds up well.  9 gauge is a heavier fabric and would require a heavier framework to support it, HF20 or HF40 for example. Not only is this fabric stronger and will resist bending and chewing by animals, it also has a better, longer lasting galvanized finish.  This is because a heavier wire or pipe may be 'hot-dipped' longer without melting in the galvanizing solution.  It will not rust as soon and this is one advantage many people do not realize.
