Aluminum Fencing FAQs – Strong Durable Ornamental Aluminum Fences
Frequently, the experts at our discount fence supplying company are asked whether aluminum ornamental fences have the strength needed to last for years. The answer can be found by looking at aluminum fences that have already been standing for decades. Aluminum is a very strong metal, despite its light weight. It is used for many purposes requiring reliable strength, including extensive use in large aircraft and other applications. The key to making the most of aluminum’s strength is through appropriate design. For fences, how the fence is used is an important factor. For example, fences used in residential applications aren’t under the same stresses as those used in commercial or industrial use.
That’s why Jerith manufactures multiple grades of its aluminum ornamental fencing. From its residential grade ornamental fencing to its industrial fencing, each grade is designed for different loads and stresses, and then over-engineered to take unusual situations in stride. Each component of a fence has different needs, from line posts and gate posts, to the rails and pickets that make up Jerith’s fence panels. For each grade of fencing, Jerith has designed in the strength needed for long life and endurance in every component. Your fence is designed to handle the stresses and forces it will meet in normal use and beyond. Choose the appropriate grade of fencing for your situation, and you can count on a fence that lasts. Some of the factors involved in designing strength into aluminum fencing include:
- Alloy Type – For fencing components, Jerith uses titanium-bearing aluminum alloys for extra strength and corrosion resistance, and selects different alloy compositions for each fence component to take advantage of those alloy’s specific characteristics.
- Extrusion Quality – Jerith is the only fence company that extrudes its own aluminum components. In its own manufacturing facility, the company has complete control over the quality of the components.
- Powder Coating – Whichever of the five available colors you choose for your Jerith fence, you’ll get a multi-layer, state-of-the art powder coating, called FencCoat. It’s so durable that it comes with a lifetime warranty against cracking, chipping, and peeling.
- Engineering – Jerith is constantly fine-tuning the designs of every component of their fencing. From posts and rails, to its exclusive self-closing hinges and latches, each component is designed for long life and easy operation, and is designed to match each fence grade.
