What is a Chain Link Fence?

Chain link fencing is one of the oldest fencing materials still used today. Other terms that are commonly used to refer to chain link fencing are chain wire, wire mesh, or rhombic mesh fencing. The process of making chain link fences needs minimal material to still create a strong fence type.

The metal used within chain link fences is LLDPE-coated steel. The wires run vertically from the top rail to the bottom but are bent to create the zig-zag pattern that chain link fencing is known for. Each “zig” wire is linked to a “zag” wire to create the rhombus shape and enhance the stability and security of the chain link fence.

Variations in Chain Link Fencing

The chain link fencing standard is the matte gray wires for protection. It is functional for security and protection purposes, but not necessarily the most aesthetically appealing. But, there are quite a few options for chain link fencing that are less popular but still great.


There aren’t too many options in terms of style variety for chain link fencing. Its name pretty much tells you the style that you are getting. However, in terms of style, there are very few options for customization.

The biggest aspect of customization that you can choose with chain link fencing is how big the rhombus shapes are. There is a standard size that Northland Fence offers, however, if this is something that is on your fencing wish list, simply contact us to discuss your various options.


Like most fences, the size of a chain link fence is really up to your imagination. For more security, we recommend investing in a higher chain link fence that is hard to climb or get through.

We specifically source 4’ and 5’ chain link fences. This height is ideal for keeping kids and pets protected in a designated area. It’s too tall for them to escape and doesn’t compromise the aesthetics of your home by being the only object to look at.

Pets and Kids

The other great circumstance that almost demands chain link fencing is to protect kids and pets from escaping the yard. Chain link fencing is hard to climb over and hard to squeeze through because of its mesh production.
