Galvanized and Coated Chain Link FenceWhat Galvanized Chain Link Fence Is?
There are two types of galvanized chain link fence: woven or welded. You can also have a chain link fence that is galvanized prior to being weaved or welded as well as galvanized after the chain link fence has been weaved or welded. The majority of chain link fence you will see available is galvanized after being welded or woven. A chain link fence that has been galvanized before being welded or woven will last longer and is more durable. This type of chain link fence is far superior but harder to find and more expensive. Both of these galvanized chain link fence types provide the same finish.
Coated Chain Link Fence
One of the best fences you can buy is one that is coated with vinyl. Galvanized chain link fence, either welded or woven, can be coated in vinyl. There are some extra steps in the straight galvanizing process that is not always taken with a chain link fence that is meant to be coated with vinyl. The vinyl coating will protect the chain link fence from rust and corrosion indefinitely. The absolute best chain link fence is the galvanized before welding or weaving and then coated in vinyl. This type of chain link is often used in lobster fishing with the pots being made from it.Woven vs. Welded
