Chain Link Fencing

Chain Link Fencing Wire is everywhere, in various forms and widths, demarcating our property, homes and businesses, while it acts as our primary layer of protection.  It protects us against intruders and shows us where we can and cannot pass.  Most of all, it is the ultimate utilitarian divide.  It's there, but it's not; a truly equitable alternative to its concrete or timber counterparts.


Chain link defines and protects our space with an almost transparent, airy feel, while making our boundaries appear clean and tidy.  It's easy to assemble and replace at a very affordable cost.

At ECMIL, we have been supplying chain link fencing wire and barbed wire to our regional customers since our inception.  To compliment these durable products, we supply Hot Dipped Galvanised Fence Posts, rails and connectors, to make the job of securing your property even easier.

Whether you are a seasoned construction professional or a gifted amateur, we recommend that you measure precisely and plan your fencing, so as to maximise height, and strength.

When ordering, remember to include at least 18" per post below ground, when casting, to maintain strong footings and combat high winds and unstable soil.  Posts should be on average at 8' centres.


There are generally two styles of fence.  

The first requires a top and bottom rail with a short space to the ground, only requiring the posts to be cast.  The chain link is then tied top and bottom and to the upright posts, and produces a clean finish.  This requires more pipe and some different configuration of fittings.

The second style requires a shallow trench between posts, to create a footing for a low wall, with at least six inches of chain link cast into it in concrete.


If you are demarcating space with the fence, passing over unstable ground, or need to have a gap between chain link and the ground, then the bottom rail style is ideal.  

Whereas, if you require no access below the fence, or use as a drain wall, then the cast footing is preferable.

Whatever the style, plan and estimate.  Then order and, sticking to your drawings, begin your preparations, measurements, post holes and casting.  

A correctly built fence has uprights set by a spirit level. Perfectly upright posts and level rails help to easily distribute the strength of the chainlink, as does the even distribution of aluminium ties. Remember to tighten fittings as you go.


When incorporating barbed wire with your installation, include barb arms at each post and in the center between posts.  

This will support the wire properly and increase its poperties; the tighter, within reason, the better.  


Each arm has 3 slots for 3 strands.  Please cater in these lengths to your final order quantities.
