50' Roll of Galvanized Before Weave (GBW) Chain Link Wire Fabric. This chain link wire fabric has a 2" diamond size and is made from 11 gauge wire with a 1.2 oz. coating that meets ASTM A 392-96 Class 1. 11 ga. chain link wire has a thickness of approximately .12" and is typically used for residential usage. The higher the gauge, the thinner the diameter of the wire; so, 12 ga. wire is thinner than 11 ga, which is thinner than 9ga, etc.
Galvanized Before Weave (GBW) wire is galvanized when the wire is still in strand form, before it is woven into chain link fabric. GBW chain link is ideal for residential use because it does not have sharp burrs, or icicles, which are common with Galvanized After Weave (GAW) wire, and are formed as zinc residue from the galvanization process hardens before it completely drips off of the fabric.
We sell chain link wire in 50' rolls only, but splicing two sections of wire together is as easy as weaving a single strand between the sections to connect them.
If you need a fabric selvage that is different from the standard selvage for your height of wire (listed below), please include that information in the order notes at checkout, or contact us.

Knuckle-Knuckle (KK) vs. Knuckle Twist (KT) Chain Link
Knuckle-Knuckle means that the ends of the chain link wire are bent down, leaving a dull corner at the top and bottom of the fence. In Knuckle-Twist, the ends of the chain link wire are twisted together, leaving their sharp edges exposed. Knuckle-Knuckle is often used for backyard fencing and sport field fencing because it is safer; it reduces the chance of getting caught on the wire edge and tearing your skin. Knuckle-Twist, on the other hand is more effective as a perimeter guard fence because it has a more menacing look that discourages fence climbers.
