Our .065 Wall Poly Color Coated Chain Link Fence Pipe is our economical, residential-grade colored pipe that is perfect for use on most residential chain link fencing products. This pipe has a wall thickness of .065 inches regardless of diameter, making it lightweight and strong. It is typically used for the "bones" of the fence, which included the posts, top rail, and gate frames. It can also be used for numerous other backyard projects that require light metal tubing, The polyester powder coat on the galvanized steel posts not only adds color, but also protects the posts from rust, ensuring low maintenance performance for years.
.065 wall pipe is available in black, brown, or green in many different diameters and lengths. Matching touch up paint is also sold in spray cans to repair small nicks and scratches in the pipe and prevent rust.
Most home or garden chain link fence installations up to 6' tall use 1-3/8" top and brace rails, 1-5/8" or 2" line posts, and 2-1/2" terminal posts. 6' and taller fences typically use 2" line posts and 2-1/2" terminal posts. If you are planning to use privacy inserts on your chain link fence, consider moving up to a heavier wall pipe, like SF20, to account for increased wind load.

WHAT IS SWEDGED CHAIN LINK PIPE?
Swedged pipe has one end that is tapered down to a diameter small enough to fit into the inside of another pipe of the same size. For example, the swedged end of a 1-3/8" pipe will fit into the standard end of a 1-3/8" pipe. This is usually done so that the pipes can be fit together continuously and seamlessly. In chain link fencing, swedged pipe is typically used for top rail, where the rail runs in one continuous line the length of the fence. For that reason, swedged rail is usually only sold in full lengths of pipe - 21' and 24' long. If your pipe is not swedged, then you would need a sleeve to join your two unswedged rails together.
