How To Measure For Slats

Before starting a privacy slats project, the first step is measuring your chain link fence. Privacy slats are designed to be installed on an existing chain link fence, sliding through the openings in the chain link mesh. They run vertically, creating a barrier that reduces visibility and prevents people outside your fence from seeing inside. Below are helpful steps on how to measure for privacy slats.


1) Grab a tape measure or ruler.


2) Measure one of the chain link mesh openings in your fence.


3) Be sure to measure the interior dimensions of the opening.


4) Use your measurements to determine which Privacy Slat King Privacy Slats best fit your fence.
