Wing Slat Privacy Fence SlatWhen you need increased privacy, Wing Slat is the answer - chain link privacy slat. With the proven quality and durability of our standard slats plus unique "wings" for extra screening and security, these slats are self-locking - no channels are needed! Includes a rigid, flat tubular body, with "legs" inside for extra support. Flexible and resilient wing portions are positioned on each side of the slat body. Serrations are added to the wings for easier installation and locking power.
Each bag covers approximately 10 linear feet of fence (ten running feet of fence).
Specifications: Wing Slat is manufactured 2" shorter than the overall height of the fence (e.g. 6 ft is 70" long). The wind load and privacy factor for a 2 inch diamond is approximately 95%. The slat width is approximately 1-7/16". Slat is made for a 2" diamond and 9 gauge wire.
Coverage: Each bag contains 82 pieces. For a 2 inch diamond, each bag will cover approximately 10 linear feet of fence (depends on how tight your fence is stretched – the average chain link fence with a 2 inch diamond has 41 diamonds for every 10 linear feet of fence).
Warranty: Manufacturer's 25-year limited pro-rata warranty.
Notes: 3' and 7' slats will take approximately 3 to 4 weeks for delivery (special order - non returnable).
Depending on your location and quantity ordered, there may be an extra shipping fee for eight foot and higher Wing Slats. If there is an extra fee, you will be contacted after your order is received.
Vinyl Coated Chain Link Fence Notes: Installing the Wing Slat in some vinyl coated colored chain link fence may be more difficult to install depending on the diamond size, gauge of wire and how tight the fence is stretched. When sliding the slat down into the chain link fence, the wing portion on the slat may cause friction against the vinyl coated chain link fence making it difficult to insert. We have had hundreds of customers install this slat with vinyl coated chain link fence without a problem, but there have been a few who could not get the slat to insert.
Made in the USA: Be aware of some non-USA made fence slats that may fade and discolor. Our slats made of virgin High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) are made in the USA and have UV inhibitors (UV resistant color concentrates) to add color protection and guard against cracking, chalking, and fading in the sunlight.
Durability: Our slats are also resistant to severe weather conditions, salt water, sand, road dirt, most acids, alcohol, alkaline, ammonia, petroleum distillates, and common environmental pollutants.
