Creating a backyard oasis where you feel safe letting your children and pets play, and enjoy hosting friends and family, is a goal of many of our clients. If you have chain link fencing in your backyard, it can protect your property from wildlife or passersby, while keeping pets and children safe inside. While chain link fences do provide a divide, many clients who use it in their backyard wish they offered more privacy and aesthetic appeal. Since replacing your entire fence can be a costly and time-consuming endeavor, we recommend installing chain link fence privacy slats.
Chain Link Privacy Inserts for Privacy
A privacy insert is an optional add-on that enhances the look of your chain link fence, while simultaneously providing privacy. The privacy inserts easily slide into your existing fence and provide 70-90% more privacy.
If you live near a walking path, a busy street, or even just close to your neighbors, privacy inserts can make your backyard feel more cozy and private.
Chain Link Privacy Inserts for Shelter
In addition to providing privacy, chain link fence slats can provide shelter. Because they cover 70-90% of your chain link fence, it protects your yard and garden from the elements. This can be helpful if you live in a particularly windy or rainy area. They are excellent additions for protecting small or delicate plants from harsh weather or too much sunshine.
Types of Chain Link Fence Privacy Inserts
We offer a variety of styles of chain link fence privacy slats. Each slat comes in a variety of heights, colours and offers different levels of privacy.
Our Lite Link Privacy Inserts are our most popular and cost-effective option. These chain link fence slats offer 70% coverage and come with a 7-year manufacturer limited warranty.
Our Bottom Lock Privacy Inserts also cover 70% of your chain link fence but come with a 25-year manufacturer limited warranty.
Both the Lite Link and Bottom Lock chain link privacy slats are fed down through the chain link and clip into a bottom track that sits on top of the bottom wire of the chain link fencing.
Like our Bottom Lock Privacy inserts, our Winged Slats for Privacy Inserts come with a 25-year manufacturer limited warranty. However, these privacy inserts offer the most privacy, covering 90% of your chain link fence. Many of our clients hire a chain link fence company to install them since they can be more difficult to install.
The winged slats need to be pulled down through the chain link since they fit more tightly within the chain link. This option offers the most privacy, however, the strength of these chain link privacy slats can be compromised by strong winds. If you live in a particularly windy area, we recommend choosing one of the other privacy insert options.
Chain link fence privacy slats are available to purchase with or without installation. Most clients find they are easy to install, and may do so themselves.
