The Slipfence HORIZONTAL Fence system was specifically designed to provide the strength and endurance of Aluminum with the warmth and beauty of wood. We combine 3" Square Aluminum Fence posts and two custom-designed, left and right Aluminum "U" Channels with regular size 5/4 Deck boards (1"thick). Then we slip these easily down the channels which are attached to the Aluminum Fence Posts. The finished result is a residential yard fence that has the warmth and privacy of a natural wood fence but the framework will not warp, crack, lean, nor rot.
If and when the wood boards become weathered and require replacing they can easily be slipped out of the framework and new ones slipped in for a brand new looking fence without having to set new posts in Concrete.For added appeal just attach the Slipfence Horizontal Cap Rail onto the top of the finished panel for a nice, clean, finished, look on the top of your fence panels.
Here are some specific details about the Horizontal Fence:
