Which fence is right for me? Chain Link Options

Chain link fences are the ideal solution for most of our customers. Whether you are looking to fence in a backyard at your home or looking for a commercial perimeter fence, chain link is a long lasting and low-maintenance solution that provides protection for your family or business. Chain link fences provide visibility while also keeping your property secure. Chain link is an economical solution when privacy isn’t a factor in your fencing project.

Residential Chain Link Options

There is also variability in the height of your fence. For most residential fences, we suggest 4’, 5’ or 6’ fences. Chain link is a great solution for oddly-shaped yards and can accommodate some curves or changes in elevation to create a secure perimeter to your property while maximizing the square footage of your yard. 


Conyers Fence Company makes all of our chain link gates in-house. From a 4’-wide walk gate to 15’-wide swing gates and even larger double gates, we can custom create a solution for your needs. A level area for your gate isn't necessary when we are able to create a custom gate to accommodate sloping ground levels present at your property. We also offer automatic gate operators which are an excellent option for driveway or estate gates.

Commercial Chain Link Options

For commercial jobs, we offer 6’, 6’+1’ which includes 3 strands of barbed wire, and 8’ chain link fences. The standard light weight commercial chain link fence is 11 ½ gauge; we also offer 9 gauge for jobs that require a highly-durable, frequently used fencing. Conyers Fence Company also offers a razor wire option in addition to barbed wire. 


Conyers Fence Company creates all of our commercial gates in-house, as well, providing the ultimate custom solution to your needs. We offer roll gates, cantilever slide gates, and barrier gates. Most of the gate options for commercial properties have the capability to be automated with a gate operator.


Privacy Options

We do offer some products that provide more privacy than chain link alone. Conyers Fence Company offers slats or windscreen as an add on.

Typically used in commercial applications, PVC slats are inserted vertically and locked into a bottom channel within the chain link, blocking 90% of the visibility into your property. Slats are resistant to severe weather conditions. They are a great option for dumpster enclosures, perimeter fencing, or dog kennel runs. Slats come in a variety of colors including black, white, tan, and green.

Windscreen is our other privacy option for chain link. The windscreen is made from 100% high density polyethylene/open mesh which offers 85% opacity, providing protection against wind and dust. Each panel includes grommets every 2 feet along all four sides that are fastened to the outside of your fence with zip ties or hog rings. Windscreen comes in 50' sections to wrap around the perimeter and can be custom fit to your gates. It can be ordered in a variety of colors, including black, blue, brown, gray, green purple, red, royal blue, and white.
