Diverse Ways to Use a Chain-link Fence

Extremely versatile, chain-link fences can fit almost anywhere and serve a myriad of functions. Whether around a home or business, in the city or country, these barriers can adapt to multifaceted needs. Consider the following ways you can use a chain-link fence.

Around a Property

A chain-link barrier can define your property boundaries and keep trespassers out. Around a front yard, chain wire mesh covered in green or black PVC will provide a smart appearance. If your home sits within a large acreage, you could delineate the house and garden from surrounding pastures. Alternatively, chain link can fence off a building site, making it clear where the perimeter lies.

Chicken and Other Animal Enclosures

If you have chickens running around your backyard, you can restrict them to one area with a chain wire mesh barrier. The webbing can keep wildlife out, especially if you bury it into the ground and construct the coop with a roof. You can build dog runs or pens for other animals also. 

Typically consisting of steel or aluminium, the fencing will endure all the elements and is strong enough to handle smaller animals pressing against it. In fact, you can select between different gauge wire, railings and posts to adjust the fence's strength depending on what it's containing. 

Business Premises

Chair wire mesh can also secure business premises. The meshing comes in rolls of varying heights so that you can construct a tall barrier for extra security. As well as using solid mesh and posts, add rolls of barbed wire along the fence top to deter trespassers from attempting to enter the grounds. Because the chain mesh allows for such clear vision, even if intruders do get inside, they'll be easily seen from the road rather than being hidden — this adds to the barrier's deterrence value.

Selected Areas

You can also use these structures in a versatile way to delineate small areas within a backyard. For example, fencing could partition a section of the garden to grow vegetables. You might, for example, have a pet dog or cat who would otherwise dig it up. If you have an outdoor air conditioning unit, fencing it off from playing children will increase their safety. Alternatively, in a vast garden, you could fence off a play section with a swing that your children can play in, allowing you to keep watch and ensure that they're safe and secure.
