The Pros & Cons of Chainmesh Fencing

Posted by: Carlo Rosales on 29 Jun 2016 | 0 comments

Chainmesh fencing is amoung the most recognisable types of fencing in Australia. Commonly found securing farms, rural properties, commercial/industrial buildings and parks. Chainmesh is an affordable fencing solution for a wide range of property types.

Chainmesh remains a popular fencing choice for many reasons. A range of improvements have been made to chainmesh fencing over the years to improve its durability, strength and quality.

Even so, there are pros and cons to chainmesh fencing which are worth taking into consideration.

The Advantages of Chainmesh Fencing

  • Affordability — Chainmesh fences are one of the most affordable fencing options. An experienced installer can ensure a tight, long lasting installation that will stand the test of time.
  • Safety — Chainmesh is perfect for containing live stock, pets and children within your property while also providing a high level of visibility through to the other side.
  • Low maintenance — Chainmesh fencing requires little to no maintenance. All chainmesh fencing is galvanised, meaning the metallic mesh has undergone a chemical process to prevent it from rusting. This extends the lifespan of the fence and reduces ongoing maintenance.

While there are many other advantages to chainmesh, there are also some disadvantages to consider:

  • Residential security — While chainmesh fencing can be installed at heights designed to deter intruders, and barbed wire can be added for security, this is typically only suitable for industrial properties. Home owners would typically use a much shorter chain link, which can be easily climbed over.
  • Lack of privacy — Chainmesh fencing won’t keep prying eyes away from your property. While the visibility through the fence is an advantage in many applications, if privacy is a concern, chainmesh may not be the most appropriate choice.
