Aluminum Fences

Much of the contemporary metal fencing found in the US is aluminum fencing, made from flattened aluminum tubing, but the ultimate appearance is quite broad. Aluminum fences are available in a variety of picket grades, heights, colors and styles. Standard styles can be modified by the addition of decorative aluminum castings such as rings, finials, ball caps, scrolls, and initials.

Aluminum has become a preferred choice because it will not rust (important consideration if you are fencing around a pool or other areas where rust will stain concrete). If treated with a powder coat, aluminum fencing will retain its finish for many years. For these reasons, an aluminum fence is virtually maintenance free.

Although traditionally, aluminum fences have not been as strong as steel fences, some premium brands now claim comparable strength through special alloy mixtures.
