How Long Will A Commercial Aluminum Last?
When you invest in a high-quality commercial aluminum fence like those from Ultra Aluminum™, your fence may last 50 years or more! That’s far longer than wood, steel, or iron fences.
Are Aluminum Fences Suitable For Areas With Extreme Weather Conditions?
Yes. Ultra Aluminum™ fences and their PowerCoat™ finish have undergone rigorous testing in all environments. The aluminum alloy can withstand temperature extremes, humidity, sun, and wind.
What Is Rackability And What Are The Benefits Of Installing A Rackable Fence?
As was stated above, rackability refers to a fence’s ability to keep a level and consistent top and bottom line when installed on uneven terrain, like a slope.
Rackability offers several benefits, including:
- Improved aesthetics: A racked fence looks more visually appealing than a “stepped” fence, where each panel sits level with the ground, leading to gaps and an uneven appearance.
- Enhanced stability: Racking helps ensure that the fence is properly anchored in the ground, which is especially important on slopes where erosion can be a concern.
- Reduced maintenance: By eliminating gaps, racking helps prevent debris and water from accumulating under the fence, which can lead to rot and decay.
- Increased versatility: Rackability allows fences to be installed on a wider variety of terrain, making them a good option for properties with slopes or uneven ground.
Are there any specific regulations or codes that need to be considered when installing commercial aluminum fences?
Fence-related laws, regulations, and zoning vary by area. Be sure to check with your local municipality or county to learn more about the possible zoning and building permits that are required before installing a commercial fence. If you have already hired a fence installation company, they should be able to provide you with the information you need.
