Brace bands are used in several ways on chain link fencing in North America.
The most common use for brace bands is as part of a rail end assembly, which is used to attach top rails and brace bands to terminal posts.
Brace bands are made from pre-formed mild steel flat bar strips with pre-drilled or punched holes. They are usually galvanized and can be color coated to match PVC-coated fence systems.
You can use our chain link fence calculator to calculate how many brace bands and other chain link fence materials you need for your project.
Like tension bands, brace bands come in a variety of sizes, so there's an option to fit most post-diameters.
