Chain Link Calculator

This calculator will help determine the materials you will need to install a chain link fence. In most cases, it will accurately calculate the materials, but you will need to subtract the gate openings from the length of the fence and top rail, and since the calculator doesn’t know the exact configuration of your fence, you should check the materials list against the list on the second page of the full chain link installation instructions. You can download the instructions here. If you would like help with your materials list, or would like us to give you a materials quote, please call the office at 618-532-2672, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You may also use our contact form, or email [email protected]

Tension wire and hog rings are not absolutely required, but are recommended to keep fence fabric from rolling up or being pushed up at the bottom.
