Aluminum chain link fence fabric is a type of mesh fencing woven with aluminum coated steel wires in a diamond pattern, technically this fence is called Aluminized Steel Chain Link Fence or Aluminum Coated Chain Link Fence. It is incredibly durable and resistant to corrosion, making it an excellent choice for outdoor fencing, ideal for areas with high humidity or near salt water. It is used for a variety of fencing applications, including residential areas, industrial sites, parks, and playgrounds.

How is Aluminum Coated Steel Chain Link Fence Mesh produced?

Aluminized steel chain link fence is not made of aluminum wire, it is a kind of aluminum powder coated steel wire fence.

The base metal for making aluminized chain link mesh  is high quality medium-carbon aluminum coated wire. The wire is coated with aluminum to produce a smooth and uniform coating. The weight of aluminum coating, wire sizes with allowable variances, and wire breaking strength, conform to ASTM A 817 for the wire size specified. Wires for chain link fence is usually galvanized, then covered with an aluminum coating which offers extra protection against corrosion and rusting.

The coating is produced by passing the cleaned wire through a melting bath of aluminum metal.

The wire aluminum coated is then woven with chain link fence machine. 

Aluminum coated chain link fence is supplied meeting these Standards:
ASTM A 491 Aluminum-Coated Steel Chain Link Fence.
ASTM F567 Installation of Chain Mesh Fencing.
ASTM A 817 Metallic-Coated Wire for use in Chain-Link Fence Federal specification. RR-F- 191 K/1 D Type II, Fencing, Wire and Post Metal (Chain-Link Fence Fabric) American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials M-181 Chain Link Mesh, Type II.

Why Aluminium Coated instead of Zinc Coated Finish?
The primary benefit of aluminized steel chain link mesh fence over regular galvanized fence is that it is much more resistant to corrosion and can often last much longer. It is also more durable and can be used in harsher environments. Another advantage is that the coating offers better UV protection, which can help protect the fencing from fading due to prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Selvage Finishes for Aluminum Coated Steel Fences:
Knuckling type of selvage: obtained by interlocking adjacent pairs of wire ends and then bending the wire ends back into a closed loop. Usually knuckle is standard unless otherwise stated.
Twisting - This type of selvage is obtained by twisting adjacent pairs of wire ends together in a closed helix of 1-1/2 machine turns, which is equivalent to three full twists, and cuffing the wire ends at a sharp angle to provide sharp points. The wire ends beyond the twist shall be at least 1/4 inch (6.4mm) long.
