Children are our most precious gift. Keeping them safe and protected is always a priority for schools, daycare centers and other childcare institutions. Every year, school safety, human trafficking statistics and child abduction stories shock the nation, driving vigorous debates throughout our culture.

In some of these situations, a high-quality security fence protecting a vulnerable area like a recess yard or playground can effectively prevent unwanted persons from access to children. With some daycare locations, a boundary fence is required for maintaining a license.

Here at Slat Depot, we have been providing high-quality chain link fencing with durable slat inserts integrated into the weave. This style of fencing provides the value and versatility prized in chain link fencing, while also providing excellent visual and physical security.

The integrated slats are available in a range of nine attractive colors. Depending on the specific site you need to be protected, our chain link fences can range from 3 to 12 feet tall and the already galvanized wire mesh can be carefully coated in a special vinyl material which can match or contrast with the color of the slats you choose.

Where visual privacy is a factor, the spacing between the slats can be adjusted from 2 3/8 inches to 2 inches.

We are proud to offer our slats in a variety of shapes, including bottom-locking ridged slats, tube slats and our new SoliTube Slat™, which integrates specially shaped fins along the sides of each tubular slat.

We understand just how important long-term value can be when making an investment in a fence. Each of our inserts is produced through a proprietary extrusion process from high-density polyurethane, which is known for its durability. Our process uses special color pigments for consistency as well as protection from gradual sun fading. The inserts also come with a 30-year limited warranty.

In a location where security is paramount, we also recommend integrating the bottom weave of the chain link fence with our innovative Viper Lock Channel™. They are sold in units of three and attach to the bottom of the slats to effectively lock them in place.

If you have a playground, recess area or other childcare institution and you need a quality chain link fence for visual and physical security, please call 800-201-5214 to learn more about the high-quality options offered by Slat Depot.
