Which Aluminum Fencing Product Should You Choose?

Which product you choose depends on what your needs are. Do you want a fancier wrought-iron look with ornamental accents? Or a basic security fence that will keep your premises secure? Being an elite aluminum fence company, we always talk with clients first to see their needs and ensure we have the right product to meet those needs.

For example, our Elite aluminum fencing comes in various grades and types. Which one you choose depends on your needs:

  • Residential-grade fencing is suitable for most homeowners’ backyards unless you expect your fence to be subjected to abuse, such as repeatedly hitting a soccer ball or basketball. Residential-grade aluminum fencing does a great job containing small children and most kinds of dogs. If you expect the fence to be impacted by soccer or basketballs, we recommend upgrading to commercial-grade aluminum or steel fencing.
  • We recommend commercial-grade fencing for small businesses, malls, apartment complexes, and so on. This fencing is a little thicker, meaning it can hold up better to the wear and tear from being in a public space. Commercial-grade fences are available in various heights and commonly requested colors.
  • Consider a Light or Heavy Industrial grade aluminum fence for maximum strength. These fences can better withstand accidental hits and damage that can sometimes happen at a loading dock. Like the Commercial Grade, several styles, sizes, and colors are available–just because it’s industrial grade does not mean it has to be an eyesore, too!

Speaking of an eyesore: Some people dislike the look of screws and fasteners on fences, preferring a cleaner look. All of the above fencing is available using Elite’s patent-pending “avalanche” style fencing, which hides screws on both sides of the fence section. You will only see screws where the rails connect to the posts.
