Plastic Chain Link Fencing: All You Needed to Know

By Angie Turner Subscribe to RSS | June 8th 2012 | Views:

Plastic chain link has been around for quiet some time now, being used for recreational, commercial, and residential applications. The most common uses include play parks, factory yards, zoos, home backyards, aviaries, and domestic animal pens. While uncoated or bare galvanized steel wire was the primary constituent material for chain link fencings, the posts were made either from concrete, timber, or steel. Thanks to recent technological advancements, there has emerged a plethora of fencing materials, including the PVC variety. Because of this, Plastic fencings have become the most sought after options in recent times, despite being more expensive than other traditional fencing materials.

So where and how did the concept of chain link fencing take seed? Manufactured for the first time in 1844 by a company named Barnard, Bishop, and Barnard, chain link fencing has been used extensively over time. The organization’s long and successful history in manufacturing cloth helped the professionals to pioneer or introduce the first machine generated chain link fencing. In America, Anchor Fence became the first agency to machine manufacture these chain link fencings. In doing so, the company used special machinery sourced all the way from Belgium. Plastic chain links, in comparison to their metal counterparts, have had a much shorter history or past. Varieties like bulk plastic chain or heavy duty plastic chain fencing made their foray only recently.

Plastic chain link refers primarily to PVC or vinyl coated galvanized steel wires. They can easily be identified by the distinctive and traditional diamond or zigzag pattern, crafted by getting these wires interlocked. The posts, on the other hand, although made of steel, timber or concrete can be covered with vinyl or PVC. This actually helps to maintain symmetry, color scheme, and style. Plastic chain, moreover, can also be identified by its distinct variety of vibrant, natural, and fresh colors or finish.

There are actually several benefits of using these plastic fencings. For one these posts or fencings will not crack, corrode, oxidize, fade, rust, or peel. Designed specifically for all weather use, these pieces have far outsmarted their coated or uncoated traditional counterparts in durability and service.
