The Cyclone Fence

Chain link fencing. Also referred to as cyclone fence, chain wire or wire netting, it’s a woven material made from galvanized steel wire. The pattern of the boundary is diagonal as the wires are bent to form a zig zag pattern and run.

The history of the type of structure originates from the UK, a firm called Bishop, Barnard and Barnard produced fences on a machine in the 1840’s. The machine that they actually produced the fencing was a weaving type machine.

The chain link fencing comes in different sizes depending in which country you live in, but for example in the USA the fencing will typically come in 50 ft rolls. There’s a good range of sizes ranging from 3 ft up to 12 ft, although it’s possible to have fences made at a higher height. The chain link fences also have different types of gauges, or thicknesses, and the most common ones would be 9.11 and 11.5,

These type of fences are very popular because of there ease of installation and there low cost. Chain link will be seen by you at more, tennis courts, play grounds, and industrial buildings.

Typically they will be either wooden, concrete, or steel, and ought to be set in concrete, although will depend on the setting. The posts shouldn’t be but this obviously depends on where you’re building the fence, and how big the fence needs to be. The fencing stretched the length of the fence and is attached at one end once the posts are erected. Any excess fencing can easily be removed by unscrewing a wire.
