Agricultural Fencing Ontario

HISTORY

Historic Farm Fence*
Agricultural fencing also known as farm fencing has been around for hundreds of years. Originally animals were allowed to roam free and farm fencing was used to keep livestock out of crops, gardens and places they were unwanted. As the population became more dense, and land was occupied by buildings and plants we started using farm fence to create perimeters around the animals therefore fencing them in, quite contrary to it's original purpose!
Early farm fences were made of materials most easily found such as stone or wood. Nowadays farm fences are manufactured from wire and installed with wood and steel posts.
Roma Fence is proud to distribute our very own line of agricultural fence products produced at our manufacturing plant, Acculink Fence & Wire Inc. in Bolton, Ontario.

Sure-Lock Knot

This speciality knot provides superior resistance to movement during adverse weather conditions, animal penetration or climbing. The line wires are crimped for added flexibility to allow the fence to be installed over varying terrain.

Top 7 Reasons to Consider Installing a Fence



 
1. Privacy: The most obvious reason for installing a fence around the perimeter of your property is for privacy. A fence will block views into your backyard and vice versa.

2. Noise Reduction: Although neighbours are wonderful, adding a fence around your property will keep out the chatter and noise going on around you, helping create a backyard oasis.

 
3. Landscape/Decor: Incorporating a fence into your property gives climbing plants something to lean on, also selecting a decorative iron fence can really extend the interior design of your home to your outdoor living space. Fences can and be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

4. Property Value: When listing your home, every upgrade counts. Most buyers value the addition of a fence for their children or pets therefore increasing your property’s value.

5. Safety: Fences are an integral part of keeping your family and pets safe. A fence will keep children and pets in an enclosed area out of harm’s way, and most importantly will avoid many accidents when installed around a pool or pond.

6. Security: Installing a fence will provide security around your home, it blocks vision as well as unwanted passage. Chain link is a great choice to cover both small and large areas.

7. Creates Boundaries: A Fence will create boundaries around your property and help provide a visual of where your property begins and ends.

Pro-Tip Tuesday: Chain Link Buying Guide


This week’s advice is all about chain link. Although choosing the right chain link might seem like a daunting task with all the options available, we have put together a brief overview that will guide you through the process.
Why chain link fence?
Chain link fence is known for its durability and low maintenance. It is also very cost effective when covering a large or small area, Acculink’s chain link fence carries a warranty on its product against rust and corrosion. Our chain link is also available in a variety of colours and finishes, allowing the fence to blend into your d├ęcor seamlessly. Choosing a chain link system offers an economical solution for security which is maintenance free.

Purposes
Chain link can be used in almost any situation, you will find a higher security fence around the perimeter of an industrial area, or a shorter chain link fence around a pool, school or residential property. Chain link is also used in our dog kennels and along major roads and highways. We offer two types of finishes, “knuckle-knuckle” which is a smooth, safe finish (for schools, homes etc) and alternatively “twisted-knuckle” (industrial, security fences etc) which is a sharp, twisted edge to help prevent climbing.

Design and Materials
We manufacture our chain-link fence onsite giving us full quality control in workmanship. We offer many options to suit your application. Standard size chain link is either 1 ½” or 2” diamond size in an 11, 9 or 6 gauge material. Some key factors that set us apart from other chain link suppliers are our fence heights that range from 18” to 144”, diamond sizes from 3/8” to 4” and lengths of 25’ to 100’ per roll. We manufacture our chain link in either a galvanized finish or extruded PVC (vinyl) in black, brown, white, or green. Custom colours are also available.
 
We highly recommend looking into chain link fencing if you need a cost effective, low maintenance solution and Acculink’s products are known for their high quality and durability. For more information on this and other products please visit www.romafencegroup.com or contact at location near you:
