PVC Fence Facts

  • Pool customers must meet certain criteria in order to be compliant with local building codes. Specifically, the fence must be at least 4' high from the lowest picket height with a 1 3/4" space between pickets or a minimum of 45" spacing between the two rails closest to the ground with up to a 4" picket spacing. In addition, self-closing hardware is also required. Be sure to check with your building department to ensure a more stringent pool code does not apply.
  • White is the standard color. Tan is available in certain styles.
  • Most styles are made on the premises and are available in 4', 5', or 6' high. Special heights can be made upon request to conform with fence ordinances for local building codes, such as the Town of Bethlehem, or with homeowner association regulations.
  • Most styles are a "thru the rail" design which means the fence looks the same on both sides. A "face mount" version is available in the Traditional Pickets if you prefer an appearance similar to a wood fence construction for the original picket fence design.
  • All posts are routered or drilled so the backing rail fits inside the post with a locking crimp for maximum durability. Posts come standard with an External Flat Post Cap. Decorative post caps are available at an additional charge.
  • Fence sections are 8' long (6' available upon request)
  • Gates match the style that you choose and come with an aluminum sleeve for your hinge post for best operation.
  • PVC fences are installed in concrete footers 2 1/2' to 3' deep
  • PVC sections 6' to 8' long contain an aluminum channel in the bottom rail to reduce sagging
  • Fences are installed 2" off the ground to meet code and to compensate for any ground movements/shifting that can occur (especially during the winter months)
  • Be sure to obtain a building permit, if required
