Timing counts for galvanized fences

Not all galvanized chain-link fences are alike. Among the other factors affecting chain-link wire is whether it was galvanized before or after it was weaved into a mesh fence. The fence could either be, simply, galvanized after weaving (GAW) or galvanized before weaving (GBW). This page explains the difference well.

GAW fencing is coated with zinc after the wire has been woven into mesh and is the most popular option. GBW fencing involves coating the wire with zinc before the mesh is woven from it. With GBW fencing, the ends of the wire where it’s cut are not fully coated whereas all of GAW fencing is coated. There is debate, however, over how much of a difference this distinction makes.
