Continuing our look at chain-link fences, the final component you’ll need to be aware of when buying a fence are the fittings. As this site describes, the fittings are the various hardware pieces that connect the fence fabric to the framework. Because they constitute the weakest link of the fence, the fittings need to be especially strong. Here’s what you need to keep in mind.
The best fittings are made of die-cast aluminum and steel. They should be hot-dip galvanized for added strength and protection.
Like the fabric and fence, the fittings should also be coated to prevent corrosion and rusting. They serve to weaken the fittings. Of course if you’ve coated the fabric and framework a certain color, you’ll want to coat the fittings to match.
