Chain link fence, also known as hurricane or cyclone fencing, is highly practical in areas where intense winds are a problem. They may not be good for privacy, but because chain link fences can be seen through, it maintains an open appearance for those who don’t want to obscure their view.
Chain link fences will last a long time, even in a cold weather climate. They are built to last with corrosion-resistant zinc coating and a chemical treatment process that allows individual wires to self heal to prevent rust formation. If it becomes damaged due to wear and tear, or an accident or vandalism, the damaged section can be easily cut out and replaced. But it is difficult to cut through because it’s galvanized.
Chain link fencing is an inexpensive option, especially if you have a large area to fence in. It’s a sensible way to help keep out wildlife and trespassers without breaking the budget.
