We never recommend this because not only is the Privacy Chain Link thicker gauge wire which is heavier, but the slats are laced so tightly that minimal wind can pass through, which in turn puts a load on the fence. So we highly recommend using materials of greater strength-- not only the posts (5'&6' Tall= min. 2 3/8 16ga. 6’ on center, 4' Tall= min. 2 3/8 16ga. 8' on center) but larger top rail (1 5/8 16ga.) and steel ties are needed, which usually leaves nothing to be reused.
