Chain-link Fabric, which is also known as; Chainwire, Chainmesh, Chainwire Mesh or Cyclone Fence Wire is the ideal fencing material for providing a practical and economical fencing solution to suit a wide range of applications, customer types and site locations.

Otter Fencing has the latest automated German machinery to manufacture Chain-Link Fabric for the fencing industry in a variety of heights, wire diameters and coating types. These can be used for various fencing applications including Security, Boundaries, Cricket Nets, Tennis Courts, Sporting Grounds, High Screens, Storage Cages, Factory Partitions plus many more versatile applications.

Our Chain-Link fabric is manufactured in Australia from Onesteel® & Bekaert® wire which complies with AS2423 for guaranteed quality.

Ordering Chain-Link Fabric  When ordering Chain-Link fabric, the normal procedure is as follows: 
>> Length + Height + Pitch + Wire + Selvedge + Finish

Coating Finishes:

Otter Fencing’s Chain-Link Fabric is manufactured from Australian made Onesteel® Wire and Bekaert Wire for guaranteed quality, with a choice of:

  1. Standard Galvanized (W02Z), and Heavy Galvanized (W10Z).
  2. Polyvinyl Chloride coated wire, (P.V.C. coated wire)
    – Black
    – Dark Green
  3. Fusion Bonded coated wire
    – Black Fusion Bonded wire for applications that require a higher durability.

        1. Standard Galvanized Wire (W02Z) & Heavy Galvanized Wire (W10Z)
Standard Galvanized Wire (W02Z) should not be mistaken or passed off for Heavy Galvanized wire (W10Z). Indicative figures from Onesteel® research reflect a life to the onset of red rust of greater than 4 times between Standard and Heavy Galvanized coatings in low corrosion environments. In wire used to manufacture 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 Galvanized Coatings.

  • Light Duty: is manufactured from 2.50mm dia. wire and is used in lighter applications, such as; temporary fencing
  • Heavy Duty: is manufactured from 3.15mm dia. wire and is used in more durable applications. e.g. Security, Industrial and Sports fencing.
  • Extra Heavy Duty: is manufactured from 4.00mm dia. wire and is used in more durable applications. e.g. High Security and Heavy Industrial.

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

Standard Diamond (Pitch) Size:

*The pitch is measured diagonally across the diamond and is only a nominal measurement. According to AS2423 there is an allowable tolerance of +/- 4mm in the pitch size.

60mm pitch: has the least amount of wire per m2 out of the five (5) diamond (pitch) sizes and is normally used for budget fencing applications such as temporary fencing.

50mm pitch: is the standard pitch size of Chain-Link fabric and is used in most applications.

45mm pitch: is used for Tennis Court Applications – Complies with AS1725: 2010, and Gates.

40mm pitch: is used for Industrial Safety Enclosures.

32mm pitch: is used for Golf, Security Screen Application, and animal enclosures.

Selvedge:

Chain-Link fabric is available in 3 selvedge finishes:

  1. Knuckle – Knuckle (KK)
    The wire is knuckled at both ends and is abbreviated as (KK)
  2. Knuckle – Barbed (KB)
    The wire is knuckled at the bottom and twisted into a barbed selvedge at the top and is abbreviated as (KB)
  3. Barbed – Barbed (BB)
    The wire is twisted into a barbed selvedge at both ends and is abbreviated as (BB)
