Aluminized Steel Chain Link Wire Fence

Aluminized chain link fence is written as Aluminum Chain Link Fence sometimes and cause confusion for users. How to choose aluminized chain link from the real aluminum one? In another word, what is aluminized chain link and its advantages?

Aluminized chain link fence is actually not made of aluminum wire, it is a kind of aluminum powder coated steel chain link fence. The aluminized steel rhombic mesh fence offers an option with less cost in commercial uses compared real aluminum. It also has the aluminum shine surface to enjoy almost all the features of the real Aluminum fences. Knuckle top chain link fences are suitable for general commercial fencing uses. Barbed wire or razor concertina coil top aluminized steel chain link fence makes ideal perimeter fencing with improved security than the knuckle ended.

The base metal for making aluminized chain link mesh  is composed of commercial quality medium-carbon aluminum coated wire. The wire is coated with aluminum to produce a smooth and uniform coating. The weight of aluminum coating, wire sizes with allowable variances, and wire breaking strength, conform to ASTM A 817 for the wire size specified. The wire is aluminum coated before weaving. 

The coating is produced by passing the cleaned wire through a melting bath of aluminum metal.

Aluminum coated steel chain link fence offer the following features: Corrosion resistance, Lightness and nice appearance, Long life time, High tensile and easy installation, Adapt to the harsh environment.Standards:
ASTM A 491 Aluminum-Coated Steel Chain Link Fence.
ASTM F567 Installation of Chain Mesh Fencing.
ASTM A 817 Metallic-Coated Wire for use in Chain-Link Fence Federal specification. RR-F- 191 K/1 D Type II, Fencing, Wire and Post Metal (Chain-Link Fence Fabric) American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials M-181 Chain Link Mesh, Type II.

Aluminized fabric is available in mesh sizes from 3/8 inch to 2 inches, and in heights from 36 inches to 240 inches. Unless otherwise specified, chain link fabric woven with a 2 inch (50 mm) mesh and 60 inches (1,520 mm) or less in height is knuckled at both selvages;
Chain link fence end types: K- Knuckle, B- Barb.

Aluminum Chain Link Fencing Applications:
Aluminum coated (aluminized) steel chain link for commercial, industrial and institutional applications. Aluminized fabric is contained in various government specifications for use in prison, road, dock, airport, housing, forestry, and military use.

Project of Aluminized Spiral Chain Link Perimeter Fencing System Top Ended with Barbed Wire:

Barbed Wire for Chain Link Top Ends

Chain link diamond mesh can use barbed wire or concertina tape wire at top ends to make a perimeter fencing system. Barbed wire chain link fence offers less cost and is suitable for general safety fencing uses.
