If you are constructing commercial premises, one of the main elements that you need to deliberate on is the type of fencing you should choose. The wide assortment of fencing materials and styles can make it confusing for you, especially if you have never had to pick out commercial fencing before. But one option that you can never go wrong with is commercial chain link fencing. Chain link fencing remains a staple in Australian homes and businesses since it is affordable yet robust. Not to mention the minimal maintenance that this type of fencing needs. If you are worried about the appearance of chain link fencing, here are some of the coatings you can consider to bolster its appearance.
Galvanised coatings, undeniably, are the most popular way of finishing chain link fencing. This type of fencing comprises metal. Thus, coating it does not only work to improve its appearance, but the galvanisation also protects the fencing against corrosion. Hence, if your property is located by the coast where it will be exposed to high humidity, you should consider galvanisation to enhance the longevity of the fencing. The galvanising process can be done via different methods including electroplating, mechanical plating and so on.
One reason why galvanised coatings are a common way of protecting chain link fencing is that they are an affordable option. Nonetheless, polymer coatings are steadily gaining popularity despite having a higher price tag than their galvanised counterparts. Polymer coatings are more attractive than galvanised coatings since the former are available in a range of colours. Therefore, if you want your commercial chain link fencing to complement your business' theme colours, then this coating will be right up your alley. Polymers are powder coated onto the chain link fencing, so the finish is highly resistant to chipping or any other form of cosmetic damage. Furthermore, the powder coating process also ensures that the chain link will be safeguarded against weathering and rust.
Another material that will allow you flexibility with the colour of your commercial chain link fence is PVC. These coatings are made from vinyl, so they add a rubberised effect on your chain link fencing, making it appear soft in appearance. PVC coatings also have an uncanny way of making your chain link fence appear organic, making it perfect for business owners that want their fencing to blend in with the greenery around their premises.
