There are a few available types of vinyl coatings, extruded, extruded and bonded, or thermally bonded. Wire size may be calculated on the underlying core wire or with coating thickness included.
|Class 1 - Extruded||Residential application
Thin coating pulled over the wire
Tears or peels easily
|Class 2A - Extruded and Bonded||Residential or commercial applications
Coating bonded to wire with glue
|Class 2B - Thermally Bonded||For industrial settings and commercial applications
PVC chemically fused to steel wire
Strongest vinyl coating
High cracking and peeling resistance
Permanently bonded color coating

Pros and Cons of Vinyl Chain-Link Fences
All fence types have their advantages and disadvantages. It’s important to be aware of them when deciding whether this type of fence is best for you.
- Relatively cheap to buy and install
- Available in a range of colors.
- Corrosion resistant. The vinyl cover ensures that the chain link fence does not rust or lose its tension.
- Durability. Without corrosion, the black chain link fence easily completes its lifetime with little maintenance.
- Little maintenance is required. Regular cleaning with a hose spray removes any dirt particles on the fence.
- Easy to install
They do look a little ugly on residential properties, in my experience.

|It will rust if vinyl coating chips off
Easy to climb
|Vinyl Fence Panels||Color doesn’t wear off |
20+ years lifespan

Boosts curb appeal and increase the resale value
Cracks in extreme temperatures
Doesn’t withstand high winds
With proper maintenance expect your chain-link fence to last up to 20 years. The vinyl coating makes the galvanized steel wire more rust and corrosion-resistant. Thicker 6- to 9- gauge wire lasts even longer. Wet, humid, and salty coastal areas may decrease the lifespan of a chain-link fence.
If you deal with skilled fence installers, the installation of chain-link fences takes 2 to 5 days on average. One day will go on set the post-in-ground with cement. Fence installers let cement cure from 1 to 4 days, depending on the cement type. Most contractors install 80 to 150 feet per day.
Black chain-link vinyl fences usually have a 10 to 15 years manufacturer warranty against fading, chipping, and peeling. Many homeowners renew their chain link fences by painting them black.
Black cyclone fencing, aka hurricane fencing, is the same as a black, vinyl-coated chain-link fence. This type of fencing is popular in coastal and storm-prone areas as wind and water pass through it.
