The legendary strength of the galvanized steel mesh and posts is one of the main reasons for its popularity over the decades.

HAVE A NEW FENCING PROJECT?
You may be familiar with the traditional galvanized (steel-coloured) chain link fence.
However, because of the enduring popularity of chainlink fencing in Calgary, more colours have come onto the market in recent times.
Galvanized Chain Link Fence
Made of galvanized steel, this traditional fence is available in different gauges and heights.
The framework and mesh are manufactured from corrosion-resistant steel pipe and galvanized wire. The larger steel gauges can provide a more robust fence that is more resistant to wire-cutting tools and bending.
With the open diamond design of the mesh, you have an unobstructed view but the fence clearly delineates your property.
Black Chain Link Fence – And Other Colours
Black fencing provides a good alternative to the steel-coloured fencing if you’re after a slightly different look for your home.
Chain link fences are also available for order in white, brown, or green.
The latter is often a good option if you want your fence to blend in with the surroundings of your garden.
Chain Link Fence Gate
Chain link fence gates allow easy entry and exit from your property. These are available in a variety of designs, including:
- Single swing (welded or bent tube)
- Double swing (welded or bent tube)
- Slide cantilever
Strong enough to withstand a cyclone
A chain link fence may look less robust than some other options but don’t be fooled – it’s really strong!
That’s why it’s used in many high-traffic public spaces and sports areas, where it often has to absorb repeated blows from balls and other sporting equipment.
And can withstand gale-force winds.
Whereas many other types of fences would be ripped up or flattened in such conditions, a chain link fence has a great chance of survival.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are First Class Fencing’s chain link fences cemented or driven?
For residential and commercial installations, we usually use cemented posts to provide the best possible durability and long-term resistance. Depending on your needs, we can adjust our installation method for optimal effectiveness and cost-savings.
How do I maintain a chain link fence?
Since these fences are made of steel, they resist environmental and pest-related damage. But you should look out for dirt and mud, excess moisture, and loose bolts. Learn more here.
How can you tighten a chain link fence?
If you want to tighten a chain link fence, firstly use your hands to pull the tension bar into the tension bands on the end post. Then use a socket wrench to tighten the bolts on the bands. Then you should release the fence puller and remove the pull bar to which it was attached. Repeat this process along all sections of the fence.
How long does a chain link fence last?
A chain link fence can last up to 20-30 years. This usually makes it an excellent long-term investment for your property.
Can you cut a chain link fence?
Yes – with the aid of bolt cutters. Make your measurements and then cut through the cut line wire by wire. A chain link fence also has a tension bar and you can use the bolt cutters to cut through that too, if necessary.

Searching for a fence contractor to replace my backyard fence, two of my coworkers recommended First Class based on their professionalism, quality, and expertise. Intrigued, I contacted them.
The owner was very personable, straightforward, and efficient, and had a quotation for me within a day. I immediately had a good feeling about this company, not just because my coworkers (who had much bigger jobs done for their residences and dealt with the same individuals). I definitely appreciated how he was honest and straightforward and communicative thoughout the whole process including what has to be done.
His team came by and did a great job with tearing down the old fence and replacing the new one. They worked efficiently and expertly. It was exactly as I expected it to be, and they did what they needed to do to ensure it was a fantastic, satisfactory job.
First Class Fencing is definitely worth contacting. I would, and have, recommended them to other people. I would definitely hire them again!
Great company and crew. Feels great having the nicest fence in the community. If you want a fence built right Tyler and his crew are who to go with.
Tyler kept us informed of start dates as due to weather he was pushed off but to make up for it the guys worked through the weekend and finished on time and budget. The crew was so nice and pleasant to work with and extremely anal when it came to building the fence making sure it was straight and plum. I’ve never seen a crew take their time like these guys did making sure everything was aligned and identical.
They built the fence like it was their own and you can’t ask for anything else. The fence stands out in our community.
Cannot give them enough praise
We are very satisfied with our new fence.Work meets our expectation. Mckeehan and Jacqueline did a great job-thank you both!
Tyler was great with coming to our home and assessing the damage from a car that nailed our fence and gate. He takes great pride in the workmanship of his company and does the “job right the first time” which is also the company’s motto. The partial rebuild and gate construction are solid and were done better than by the “professionals” who tried to do the original project. I highly recommend First Class Fencing for anyone who is interested in great workmanship and a 5-year warranty. Thanks Tyler for a great job!
First Class understood what we needed, explained the options specific to our property, provided competitive pricing and got the job done in one weekend. We are so happy with this contractor!
