Chain link Fencing

Chain wire is a simple and economical solution for the perimeter of a residential home, industrial site, school or sporting facility.
Its ease of installation allows for a quick turn around from preparation to job completion. Available in galvanised or coloured PVC coating (black or green) with barbed wire top strands available for added security.

Chain wire security fencing is ideal for schools, tennis courts, industrial properties and anywhere that requires a no fuss budget cost fence that looks great and is purposeful.

Coating finishes

You can choose from a Heavy Galvanised wire (Class W10) or P.V.C. coated wire, in Black or Dark Green.

1. Heavy Galvanized (HG) wire (Class W10)

Heavy vs  Standard Galvanised coated wire
Standard Galvanised wire (Class W02) should not be mistaken or passed off for Heavy Galvanised wire (Class W10). Indicative figures from Onesteel® research reflect a life to the onset of red rust of greater than 4 times between Standard and Heavy Galvanised coatings in low corrosion environments. In wire for Chain-Link fabric (2.50mm and 3.15mm diameter) there is a differential in coating mass of approximately 200g/m2 between Standard and Heavy Galvanised Coatings.

NB: The inferior metallic coating of Standard Galvanized coated wire does not meet the Australian Standard – Chain-Link Fabric Security Fences and Gates (AS 1725-2003).

 

2. Polyvinyl Chloride coated wire, (commonly known as P.V.C. coated wire), is available in standard colours of either Black or Dark Green.

P.V.C. coated wire diameters are measured and specified by the core base Galvanized wire diameter.

Chain-Link Fabric – Service Duty
There are two wire diameters that are used to manufacture Chain-Link fabric which meet the Australian Standards for Chain-Link fencing Australian Standard – Chain-Link Fabric Security Fences and Gates (AS 1725-2003).

 

Light Duty: is manufactured from 2.50mm dia. wire and is used in lighter applications.
Heavy Duty: is manufactured from 3.15mm dia. wire and is used in more durable applications. e.g. security, industrial and sports fencing.

NB: Light Duty 2.50mm Chain-Link fabric provides for only approximately 60% of the load bearing capacity of heavy 3.15mm Chain-Link fabric.

Posts and Footings

 

Fenced Out  can provide a full range of galvanised pipe in stock lengths and cut to length fence posts and rails. The product is sold in galvanised form for Standard Galvanised and Coated for PVC coated fences

Posts/pipe used for Chainwire fencing under the australian standards are available in 3 grades:
• Medium
• Medium/light
• Medium/extra light

Fences are specified in the Australian Standards as:

• Class 1 – Medium quality designed for improved durability and life for fencing for long term security purposes such as for government departments and councils.
• Class 2 – Medium/Light designed for industry for medium to long term security purposes such as industrial and commercial installations.
• Class 3 – Medium/Extra Light designed for short term security purposes such as domestic and light duty industrial and commercial.

Corner, strainer and end posts shall be 50nn DN/NB and excavated to a minimum depth of 750mm. Intermediated posts shall be 40mm DN/NB and excavated to give a minimum depth of 600mm

Intermediate Posts

Intermediate posts are fence posts positioned at regular, equally spaced intervals between corner, terminal and gate posts to provide support for the chainwire mesh. Where specified by the purchaser, posts may have extensions provided above the top level of the mesh for the attachment of barb wire.

Intermediate posts are usually equally spaced at 3.3m centres (AS 1725.1-2010) or as specified by the purchaser. It is not unusual for security fencing to have posts specified at 4m centres.

The intermediate barb extensions may be straight or if required, bent at 45° and protruding at 90° to the fence line – see opposite. The barb wire is usually secured on the external side of the posts, however with cranked extensions, the local council may insist that the posts are set back so the extension does not protrude into public space if facing away from the property.

Corner Posts

Corner posts are fence posts at a corner or change of direction and provide support for the chainwire mesh to be strained off. Because corner posts are used to strain chainwire, cable wires and barb wire (when used), they need to be supported sufficiently with a horizontal bracing strut, diagonal bracing stay or top rail. Where specified by the purchaser, posts may have extensions provided above the top level of the mesh for the attachment of barb wire.

The Corner post barb extensions may be straight or if required, bent at 55° if the extension is facing outwards and set at 45° to a 90° corner – see opposite. If the cranked extension is at 45° to the fence line, then the barb spacings will vary, by being spaced out further. For a typical 150mm barb spacing, the cranked corner post spacing will be 212mm.

The barb wire is usually secured on the external side of the posts, however with cranked extensions, the local council may insist that the posts are set back so the extension does not protrude into public space if facing away from the property.

End Posts

End posts are fence posts used as a terminal post on a fence line and provide support for the chainwire mesh to be strained off. Because End posts are used to strain chainwire, cable wires and barb wire (when used), they need to be supported sufficiently with a horizontal bracing strut, diagonal bracing stay or top rail. Where specified by the purchaser, posts may have extensions provided above the top level of the mesh for the attachment of barb wire.

Strainer Posts

Strainer posts are fence posts used as an intermediate strainer post on a fence line and provide support for the chainwire mesh to be strained off. They typically are specified over and above a normal specification and are often spaced at intervals of 150m on straight lengths. Because Strainer posts are used to strain chainwire, cable wires and barb wire (when used), they need to be supported sufficiently with a horizontal bracing strut, diagonal bracing stay or top rail. They are braced in both directions in line with the fence – see below right. An alternative is the bracing panel, consists of 2 strainer posts, rail & cable wire and turnbuckles – see below left.

Gate Posts

Gate posts usually are used in pairs to frame a gateway. Gate posts at the end of a fence run provide support for the chainwire mesh to be strained off. Because Gate posts are used to strain chainwire, cable wires and barb wire (when used), they need to be supported sufficiently with a horizontal bracing strut, diagonal bracing stay or top rail. Where specified by the purchaser, posts may have extensions provided above the top level of the mesh for the attachment of barb wire.

The gate post barb extensions may be straight or if required, cranked (50mm bent, 80mm cut & welded) at 45° and protruding at 90° to the fence line. If the gate post has cranked barb extensions, the gate frame barb supports always remain straight otherwise the cranked extension would hit the post’s cranked extension when opening the gate – see opposite.

The barb wire is usually secured on the external side of the posts, however with cranked extensions; the local council may insist that the posts are set back so the extension does not protrude into public space if facing away from the property.

Bracing Stays & Rails

Bracing stays and bracing rails are fitted to all corner, end, intermediate strainer and gate posts unless specified otherwise or there is a top rail fitted. Because these terminal posts are used to strain chainwire, cable wires and barb wire (when used), they need to be supported sufficiently with a diagonal bracing stay or horizontal bracing rail.

Back Stays

Back stays are fitted when specified to intermediate posts at 90° to the fence line. They are generally spaced at a specified number of intermediate posts e.g. every 5th intermediate post. There is also the option to use them on gate posts where the gates are large and the posts require additional support to carry the weight or when otherwise specified. When used on gate posts, they are fitted at 60° to the fence line angling away from the gate opening back along the fence line. This allows the gate to open more than 90°.

Fencing Wire

 

Lacing Wire/Tie Wire

  • Lacing & tie wire are commonly used in the following applications. For every 100m of fence, allow 3kgs (Galv) & 4kgs (PVC) plus above.
  • Lacing chainwire to top & bottom pipe rails
  • Lacing chainwire vertically to terminal posts
  • Tying chainwire mesh to intermediate posts
  • Tying helicoil cable to intermediate post
  • Tying barb wire to posts – barb extension
  • Tying chainwire mesh to horizontal cable wires as a substitute to netting clips (‘ring fasteners’)

Netting Clips

Netting clips are an alternative to using tie wire to fix the chainwire mesh to the supporting cable wires.

The clips are secured at 320mm maximum spacing or every 4 diamond using a hand operated tool similar to a pair of pliers. The clips are closed tightly around the cable wire and the wire of the mesh.

Cable Wire

  • Twin double twisted support cables (3.15mm diameter) are used as a double strand plain horizontal cable, which is twisted together at intervals between intermediate posts to form a tensioned spiral effect, allowing the chainwire mesh to be adequately supported between all posts. To gain this effect, each strand is looped around alternative intermediate posts but never both around the same post.  ( Fazed Out Method due to rust issues)

Helicoil

  • Helicoil cable (4.00mm diameter) is a single strand horizontal cable which is strained taut between and secured to all terminal posts. The helicoil cable is secured to the mesh side of all intermediate posts with double cross ties of 2.00mm lacing wire. As with double twisted cable option, the purpose is to support the chainwire mesh between all posts.

Barbwire

  • Barbwire is used in applications where additional security is required. The most common used barbwire is 1.57 high tensile with a reverse twisted pattern construction for maximum strength and barbs at 100mm spacings. Typically, the barbwire is strained taut between terminal posts above the chainwire at predetermined spaces

 

Chainwire Gates

Gates can be fitted to gate posts or other solid structure e.g. brick wall so as to allow the gate to swing freely without hindrance. Unless specified otherwise, gates are supplied fitted with equipment to enable locking, keeping open etc – see below options. The gates are to have sufficient clearance to maintain security when closed and set at a height that allows the gate to swing without scraping kerbs and other obstacles.

Fence Fittings

All rails & stays are connected to posts using galvanised bolted split clamp-on type fittings as shown on this page. Unless otherwise specified, all fitting sizes relate to nominal bore pipe dimensions (NB).

Gate Fittings – Hinges

Gates are connected to posts or other suitable solid structure using galvanised bolted split clamp-on or gudgeon type hinge fittings as shown on this page. Unless otherwise specified, all fitting sizes relate to nominal bore pipe dimensions (NB).

Gate Fittings – Locks

Gates are retained in the closed position by either chain or shootbolt depending on type and retained in the open position by dropbolts as shown on this page. Unless otherwise specified, all fitting sizes relate to nominal bore pipe dimensions (NB).
