Evergreen vines on steel gauge fence

I have an 80' steel gauge fence, 48" high, that I'm thinking of covering w/ an evergreen vine. Is that a good idea given the short fence height? Will it run amok as a groundcover as well?

My choices so far are hedera helix or euonymous fortunei and I know they are both invasive growers. The fence is in deep shade on one side (pine trees) and sun on the other (east, a.m. sun).
