Chain link fences are comprised of woven metal wires. The gauge of a chain link fence is the diameter of the wire that is used to build the fence. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire’s diameter, and conversely, the lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire’s diameter. Generally speaking, wire gauge ranges from about 6 gauge (.192” thickness) to 11 gauge (.120” thickness). The standard gauge for residential and commercial chain link fence is 9 gauge.

11-gauge chain link fences are used for temporary applications, such as concerts, parades, sporting events, or around construction sites. And, 6-gauge chain link fences are commonly used for high-security applications, such as around prisons or facilities with high-price items or materials onsite.
