Only use GAW Chain Link.  Do not use GBW chain link

(see the differences below)

 

 GBW or Galvanized Before Weaving Chain Link is made from strands of galvanized wire.  The wire is galvanized – coated with zinc.  The wires are then woven together.  During the weaving process the protective layer of zinc is rubbed off.  This leaves the wire unprotected at the woven joint where the wires cross.  When GBW meshes and fencing are used outside and exposed to the elements, rain or any corrosive liquid will collect at these vulnerable spots. Rust and corrosion will start to eat at the wire, weakening the mesh and fence, limiting its lifetime.

 

 GAW or Galvanized After Weaving Chain Link is not galvanized until after the wires are woven.  After the wires are woven, the entire finished product is drawn through a bath of molten zinc. The GAW chain link emerges with a thick coating tightly bonded to the wire.  Each strand of wire is protected. More importantly, each vulnerable welded or woven area is thoroughly sealed.  GAW Chain Link is ideal for areas where exposure to water and other corrosive substances will be expected.  The extra zinc on the GAW Chain Link guarantees a longer lifetime than the GBW Chain Link.  GAW Chain Link is more expensive than GBW chain link, but, it is well worth the extra expense.

 

Commercial chain link fence is utilized by cities, schools and businesses for a variety of reasons.  Businesses use this type of fence to secure their properties since the barbed wire and razor ribbon installed above the fence make it extremely difficult to climb over.  Schools use the commercial chain link fence to enclose school yards, stadiums, and other areas because of its inexpensive pricing and longevity.  This fence is available in a variety of heights and weights.  There are special order items available such as colored chain link and privacy slats.  This type of fence is offered in three different weights: Light, Medium, and Heavy.
