Buyer's Guide

Chain Link

Chain Link is made of interlocked metal wires in a woven zig-zag pattern. A straightened wire is twirled out and cross-weaved into other twirled wires, to form a linked fence. 

Chain link fences are known for their durability, low maintenance, and impact resistance. They have maximum shock absorption properties. It is commonly used for both residential and commercial purposes and is recognizable by its distinctive chained, diamond-shaped pattern.

Assembly - Chain Fence

To install a chain link fence, the chain link fabric is unrolled and stretched between posts, which can either be line posts or terminal posts, depending on the fence's design. Tension wires and fittings are used to secure the chain link fabric to the posts, ensuring that it remains taut and securely attached.

A gate can be assembled similarly, and attached to the fence using welded hinges. The gate provides easy access and security control to the fenced area. It is very common to install barbed wires and razor wires using a Y-bracket on top of these fences.


Material Selection: We provide the following material choices: Standard Galvanised Wire, Kaala Iron Wire and PVC Coated Wire.

Wire Drawing (as required): The wire is drawn through multiple dies, in order to achieve the desired thickness. This process also ensures uniformity and consistency in its diameter.

Wire Cleansing: The wires are lubricated with various solutions and/or oils to maintain a good finish and corrosion resistance. Surface treatments such as annealing (heat treatment), galvanizing (zinc coating) may also be done at this initial stage.

Coiling: The wires are then coiled onto a compatible loom

Weaving: Each wire passes through a twisting mechanism to form a twisted wire. The twist amount depends on the hole size required.

Horizontal Feeding: The twisted wire is fed into the linking machine, in a twirling manner.

Vertical Feeding: The linking machine pulls the  chain link slightly, in order to ready itself for the next weave.

Further Weaving: The process continues, with more twists and horizontal twirling. This creates a chained link fabric

Disengaging: The final chain link roll is disengaged from the machine, ready to be rolled.

Packaging: It is cut into the required roll size and packaged by hand.

Quality Inspection: Each roll is inspected multiple times in its production cycle. During production, hole size is being measured every few hours. During every loom refills, wire thickness is re-assured. Then, at the moment of length measurements and packaging, the quality of the final product is assessed. 

Galvanising, Coating or Painting (Optional): Electro-galvanised, Coated and Painted options are available on request.
