Chainwire fence maintenance

One of the many reasons chainwire fencing remains popular here in Australia is it’s ability to withstand the elements with minimal maintenance.

That said, there are a few points to keep in mind if you’d like your chainwire fence to stay standing and functional for as long as possible. Read on to discover some tips that will go well alongside the industry-standard fence design and installation services we provide here at Chainwire Fencing Specialist.


To maintain your chainwire fence’s appearance, we recommend scrubbing your fence with a wire brush to remove any dirt or rust that may have accumulated there.

If rust is a major concern for you regarding your fence, we offer PVC (green or black) coating services that shield your fence’s metal links from corrosion.

Mixing one cup of strong household detergent with a gallon of warm water will produce a solution suitable for cleaning any debris from your fence.

For quick cleaning of fresh dirt, a garden hose will suffice.

Gate alignment

Occasionally, your chainwire fence’s gate may be knocked out of alignment. If this does occur, it’s usually solvable by adjusting the fence’s hinge pins.

Using a socket wrench, loosen the bolts just enough to be able to reposition the gate so that it sits parallel to the rest of the fence. Once done, hold it in place by placing a supporting block of wood underneath the gate. Re-tighten the bolts and you’re all set!

Long-term maintenance

The beauty of chainwire fencing solutions from Chainwire Fencing Specialist is that once your fence is installed, it requires very little care beyond cleaning. A PVC coating further reinforces this.

In case of damage to your fence due to an accident, however, your fence may be in need of some more detailed care. Here at Chainwire Fencing Specialist, we’re more than qualified to assist you with all your fencing and installation needs, whether you’re a commercial or residential property owner.
