5ft Black Tube Slats by Slat Depot can be added to existing chain link fence to improve privacy, security, and aesthetics. Slats are economical and easy to install. Each box contains 82 slats and 10 feet of Viper Lock Channel - enough to cover 10 linear feet of three foot tall chainlink fence. Each individual slat measures 1.094 (1-3/32) inches wide and can be installed in 11.5, 11, or 9 gauge chain link fabric with a diamond pattern ranging from 2 to 2.375 inches. Slats are approximately 56.5 inches long (3.5 inches shorter than the overall height of the chain link fence to facilitate installation). It is the owner's responsibility to ensure your fence will withstand the increased wind load of adding slats. To install, simply slide the Viper Lock Channel horizontally into the bottom of the first fully enclosed diamond of chain link (see details in pictures) and then slide each slat vertically through the diamonds of the chain link until it clicks into the locking channel. DO NOT WEAVE in and out of the chain link. Chain link is woven in a way that leaves a space for the slat to slide down through the fence. Damaged or bent chain link fence may need to be repaired to facilitate slat installation. See pictures for privacy achieved in common chain link sizes. The amount of privacy achieved varies depending on the size of the diamond of the chain link used. The size of the chain link diamond is the space measured between two parallel wires in the diamond weave (not corner to corner). Two inch diamond requires approximately 82 slats every 10 feet providing 75 percent coverage (1.094" x 82 ÷ 120" = 74.7%). Economy chain link with a 2.375" diamond requires approximately 74 slats every 10 feet providing 65% coverage (1.094" x 74 ÷ 120" = 67.4%). Chain link fabric with a diamond pattern larger than two inches will use fewer slats than provided in each unit. Viper Lock Channel is available for purchase to use with extra slats. Meets or exceeds ASTM D638.
