A chain link fence is a type of woven fence usually made from galva-nized wire. The wires run vertically and are bent into a zigzag pattern so that each ‘zig’ hooks with the wire immediately on one side and each ‘zag’ with the wire immediately on the other. This forms the characteristic diamonda pattern seen in this type of fence.
The popularity of chain link fence is due to its relatively low cost and eases of installation. A further advantage is that due to the open weave, chain link fences are transparent, and do not obscure sunlight from either side of the fence
