Chain-Link Materials You’ll Need for Your Fence.

· Concrete Mix

Concrete mix is essential to place the fencing poles in because they create a strong base for the fence. There are many variants of concrete products in the market; we recommend the extra-strength concrete mix.

· Tension Wire and Bands

Tension wire runs through the wire mesh at the bottom to make it tighter. The bands connect the corner posts and can be tightened to increase tension on the wire mesh.

· Post Caps

If you are using hollow posts, post caps are essential to keep rain from falling into the posts. You can also have them installed for aesthetic purposes.

· Top Rail

The top of a chain-link fence has to be lined by a top rail. You can make your top rail custom by pre-ordering it.

· Rail Caps

You will need to rail caps to secure the top rail to the corner posts. You’ll find two types of rail caps, one that is inserted into the corner pole and another with a 90-degree ring that slides around the pole. They both get the job done.
