How to calculate my Aluminum fence Panels?
Main Posts: our recommendation is to have 6′ between posts.
Formula: Fence Length / 6′ + 1 = The amount of posts you’ll need. If the number is not full round it up.
Example: if you need 27′ Fence you will need 6 posts: 27/6=4.5 (round up to 5) + 1 end post= 6 post.
Slat Panels: There are two sizes of slats, 1″ and 5.5″. Depending on the fence height you can calculate the quantity you will need for each 6′ section of the fence. Formula: Fence height (inches) / 5.5″ or 1″ = The quantity of slats for each 6′ section. This time round the number down (you can add 1″ slat fill if there is a gap).
Example: If your fence height is 42″ you will need 7 slat for each section of 6′: 42/5.5=7.63 (round down to 7).
If you want it to be complete 42″ (7 slats makes 38.5″) you can add three 1″ slats on top (1×3=3″ more).
Post Cover: Used to cover empty slides opening in the post if not being used to slide slats (only in end posts). Usually you will need total of 2 for any size fence, if your fence end on a wall or brick post you will not need any. Every post comes with 1 post cover.
Post’s Base, Base Cover, Post Top: Usually the same quantity as you posts (one for each post)
Gates: Choose your gate size (3′ or 4′), if you want a custom size gate or custom design, contact us and we will be happy to make it for you.

Residential aluminum fence panels are perfect for applications around your home. You can use these panels for the perimeter of your yards, in your gardens or around your swimming pools. House owners can completely rely on the strength of these fencing to negate trespassers, keeping pets in, or just define property lines.

Misconceptions about Aluminum Slat Fencing
1. Aluminum Fence panels doesn’t last long.
This is a completely wrong assumption as aluminum is the most long-lasting metal compared to others, being naturally resistant to corrosion and rust. Aluminum tops its class when it comes to this factor.
2. Aluminum fence panels costs less due to cheap quality.
The less cost of aluminum fencing may seem suspicious only to those dwelling over costly wrought iron fencing. Aluminum costs less not due to their less quality, but due the abundance of the metal resource on earth. It is also a recyclable and reusable metal which proves that aluminum can be used so much without impacting its quality, and its abundance will never perish.
3. Aluminum Fence panels is Lightweight, Won’t last long.
Wrong again. The lightweight of the material involves the density of the metal and not its strength. Aluminum is denser than steel and steel and wrought iron meaning its lighter than both. Many manufacturers find the lightweight factor a positive sign, as its easy and more affordable to ship, lift, and install.
4. Aluminum Fence panels is Hard to Clean and dispose of.
Aluminum fencing needs just cleaning to maintain. Cleaning an aluminum fence is really easy. It only needs a little snug soapy water and some elbow grease to have it shining and sparkling. Comparing this to other fencing which may require hours of scrubbing at rust and treating afterwards, it is clear who tops the table.
Aluminum fencing is easy to dispose oftoo. If you decide to change up your property, or want to update your fencing with a new set of aluminum fencing, then your old set is quite easy to dispose of. As we previously mentioned, aluminum is highly recyclable, as it can be used time and time again without diminishing in its quality. Therefore, there are many recycling services you can give your old fencing to, some of which may even pay you for your donation!
