A Chainlink Fence Post Revival: A Tale from Sheridan Fencing

Unveiling the Post: Breaking Free with Bolt Cutters

So, let me tell you about this job we had at Sheridan Fencing that was a bit out of the ordinary. Usually, we're tearing down old fences, but this time in Walderslade, Chatham, we had to bring an old chain link fence post back to life. This thing had been standing since way back in 1967, but a run-in with a scaffolding lorry left it stuck solid. The client couldn't shift it, so they called us in for backup.

First things first, we had to get it loose from all those wires holding it down. Bolt cutters were our weapon of choice – no, we weren't up to any mischief, they were just the tool for the job. Once we got those wires out of the way, we were faced with the challenge of cracking through the tough concrete surrounding the post.

Freeing the Post: Using Muscle and Determination

We had to use a bit of muscle and a trusty iron fencing bar to get the job done. It wasn't easy, but with some elbow grease and determination, we finally managed to break the post free. That thing had been stuck tight, but we weren't about to let it beat us.

Selecting a Replacement: Choosing Quality and Durability

Next up was finding a replacement post that could stand the test of time. We went for a sturdy chain link fence post from Boxley Fencing Suppliers – we wanted something tough that could handle whatever the future threw at it.

Precision Installation: Measuring, Leveling, and Securing

Installing the new post was a piece of cake compared to getting the old one out. We made sure it was measured upright, level as can be, and secured it in place with quick-drying cement. Precision was key – we wanted to make sure this post wasn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Standing Tall: A Testament to Dedication and Craftsmanship

And finally, the moment of truth – the revived post stood tall once again. It was a proud moment for us at Sheridan Fencing, showing what we're made of when faced with a challenge. It might have been a bit different from our usual jobs, but we're always up for a challenge, and this one ended with a job well done.


Why choose chainlink fencing?

Chain link fencing, renowned for its versatility and durability, serves various practical and functional purposes across residential, commercial, and industrial settings. Here are some of the key benefits and applications of chain link fencing:

Security: One of the primary purposes of chain link fencing is to provide security and containment. Its sturdy construction and interlocking design create a formidable barrier that deters unauthorized access and trespassing. Chain link fencing is commonly used to secure residential properties, industrial sites, schools, parks, and sports facilities.

Perimeter Fencing: Chain link fencing is an excellent choice for defining property boundaries and establishing clear perimeters. Its visibility allows for easy monitoring of enclosed areas, making it ideal for keeping track of property lines and deterring encroachments.

 Safety Enclosures: Chain link fencing is frequently employed to create safety enclosures for various applications, such as playgrounds, construction sites, and storage areas. Its open design provides unobstructed visibility while effectively containing people, equipment, or materials within designated areas.

 Animal Enclosures: Chain link fencing is a popular choice for creating secure enclosures for pets, livestock, and wildlife. Its durability and resistance to chewing make it an ideal solution for containing animals while allowing adequate ventilation and visibility.

 Sports Facilities: Chain link fencing is commonly used to enclose sports fields, courts, and stadiums, providing a safe and secure environment for athletic activities. Its transparent design allows spectators to enjoy unobstructed views of the action while ensuring player safety and containment.

 Landscaping and Privacy: While chain link fencing is not typically chosen for its privacy properties, it can be enhanced with privacy slats or screens to create semi-private enclosures. Additionally, chain link fencing can serve as a framework for climbing plants and vegetation, providing natural screening and enhancing aesthetic appeal.

 Cost-Effective Solution: Compared to other fencing materials, chain link fencing is often more affordable to install and maintain. Its simple design and ease of installation make it a cost-effective solution for large-scale projects and budget-conscious property owners.

 Low Maintenance: Chain link fencing requires minimal maintenance compared to alternative fencing materials such as wood or wrought iron. Routine inspections and occasional cleaning are typically sufficient to keep chain link fencing in optimal condition, making it a practical choice for busy property owners.

In summary, chain link fencing offers a versatile and cost-effective solution for a wide range of applications, including security, perimeter delineation, safety enclosures, animal containment, sports facilities, landscaping, and privacy enhancement. Its durability, visibility, and low maintenance requirements make it a popular choice among property owners seeking reliable and long-lasting fencing solutions.
