Hurricane fencing (more commonly referred to as chain link) is so-named because it’s often the only fencing left standing in the wake of big storms. Introduced to the United States in 1898 by the Anchor Fence Company, hurricane fencing is durable and inexpensive. It’s perfect for a variety of uses in Houston and southeast Texas.
A chain-link fence (also referred to as wire netting, wire-mesh fence, chain-wire fence, cyclone fence, hurricane fence, or diamond-mesh fence) is a type of woven fence usually made from galvanized or LLDPE-coated steel wire. The wires run vertically and are bent into a zig-zag 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 diamond pattern seen in this type of fence.
