Galvanized & Vinyl Coated Chain Link Wire Now Available
Great news for our professional and DIY customers. In addition to our large selection of chain link fittings, slats, and accessories, we now offer galvanized chain link fabric from 11-1/2 to 6 ga. and vinyl coated chain link fabric in 9 ga. extruded and 8 ga. fused & bonded.
All of our galvanized wire is galvanized before weave (GBW). That means is that the wire is galvanized when it is still a single strand, and not after it has been woven into a chain link mesh. GBW wire is typically smoother than Galvanized After Weave (GAW) because when GAW wire is dipped in the zinc galvanizing solution, it tends to not drain evenly and the drips harden to form little zinc "icycles" (See images below). These icycles can be sharp enough to scratch and cut your hands during and after installation. They also make the wire harder to stretch because the knuckles get frozen in the excess zinc.
Our vinyl coated chain link wire comes in 2 varieties, 9 ga. extruded and 8 ga. fused and bonded. The 9 ga. is great for residential projects, while the heavier core 8 ga. is ideal for commercial and industrial work.
We are also offering the following quantity discounts on all wire. The more you buy, the more you save. The discounts are applied automatically when you check out, so there are no hoops to jump through to get them.
