Modern chain link fences are made from galvanized steel and can last for decades. Galvanized steel is one of the strongest materials you can build a fence out of, and with its zinc coating, it is able to resist rust and keep its strength for years. You can choose the gauge level of your chain link fence, which will adjust the strength your fence can handle. No matter the gauge, all chain link fencing will stand up to the elements and protect your property beautifully.


Chain Link Fencing Provides Security 

Chain link fences for Nebraska add safety and security. There are several additional solutions available to improve security, like barbed wire or razor wire. You can also choose to install a standard height fence around 4’ or you can raise it for added security to 6’ and sometimes 8’. When it comes to safeguarding your property, a chain link fence’s strength and longevity make it a perfect option for your home or business.

Traditional Galvanized Chain Link Fence

This is the “standard” for a Nebraska chain link fence. Depending on the terrain and characteristics of your unique location, this is typically the least costly of all fence types. Chain link fences are rust-resistant and require very little maintenance. Because of all of these qualities, this traditional chain link fencing option is perfect for many residential and business applications in Nebraska and the surrounding area.

If you prefer a bit of an upgrade from the galvanized steel wire, you can purchase a chain link fence coating that may better coordinate with your home’s style, and the vinyl will keep the fence looking new for a longer period of time. PVC is a vinyl coating similar to plastic and adds a protective barrier to the chain link fencing that produces a smooth appearance and feel while also protecting the fence from typical rust and weather damage. Black is the most readily available color, but please contact one of our specialists for the most up-to-date information on the availability of other colors.

Slatted Chain Link Fences

Slatted chain link fences offer another visually appealing style for many people. These slats are made from durable materials like PVC that come in various colors and finishes, making them one of the more versatile style options available.

These fences simply involve adding slat inserts into the link material, offering additional coverage and privacy for Nebraska homeowners. This will increase the price, not just for the cost of the slats, but also for the labor and the specs of the fence. The specs need to be adjusted due to the need to withstand the extra wind loads that the slats will cause.
