Chain Link Fence Gate Parts – Steel fences oscillate between wire fences and steel fences with vertical and lateral transverse beams that have been welded together to create a more solid fence line. A handful of pieces are needed to make these steel fences stand solidly on their own, and the doors are also necessary to allow people to enter and exit with ease.
Line guide clamps connect the metal bars that create the frame for a wire fence. These metal bars run around the outside of the wire fence itself, as well as running vertically and horizontally along the link chain to make the fence stand solidly. Pipes that make up the frame of a steel wire fence are often open at the top and require a cover to keep rainwater from accumulating inside them or insects to use them for their nests. These steel ferrules are sold in a variety of sizes to fit the size of the steel tube frame.
In steel fencing doors, hinges are needed to allow a section of the door to open and close easily. These hinges are made of steel so that they do not rust or corrode over time and continue to open and close without resistance. Tension rods are often made diagonally through a square stainless steel fence frame to give the chain link greater strength. These tension rods are often made of solid galvanized steel and are heavy and thick for their size. Plug them into the steel frame of the fence itself with steel wire or small screws or bolts.
