Q13.)  What special requirements are there for setting posts to accept PrivacyLink™?
A13.)  PrivacyLink™ products install like regular chain link, however when you construct anything that will create a wind buffer, it must be built stronger. Chain link fence is usually installed with 10' maximum post spacing. We do recommend 8' post spacing and heavier wall posts. Certain areas which receive unusually high winds require closer post spacing and heavier wall posts. For normal wind conditions 8' post spacing and SS20 framework is recommended. See the installation page for more information.

Q15.)  Can I install PrivacyLink™ in my town, XXXX?
A15.)  Always check local building codes before attempting any construction. They vary across the country and change frequently.

Q16.)  Can I get more information and a color sample/ slat sample before purchasing?
A16.)  Color samples aren't always available for this product. If you have specific questions, please email. You may wish to buy one 25' length as a sample; you may return it if you do not like it or purchase more to finish your job.

Q17.)  How do I stretch the chain link with the slats already in place?
A17.)  Chain link is often stretched with a 'spreader bar' or stretch bar viewed here:

In order to use one of these you will need to remove one or two slats to insert your stretch bar. Once the fence is stretched you can replace the slat(s) without difficulty.

A18.)  Yes, you can as easily as regular chain link.
