Cap Rail

The Traditional Fence System seamlessly blends the strength and durability of aluminum with the timeless appeal of wood. With 3” square aluminum fence posts matched with standard 2x4 wood rails and 1x6 fence pickets, assembly is simple: attach the aluminum brackets to the posts using the provided hardware and slide in your 2x4 wood rails. From there, customize your desired traditional wood panel fence, be it a shadowbox, board-to-board, or board-on-board style—or a combination of these designs. This system, our most economical option, pairs aluminum posts with the warmth of wood.

Traditional Fence Styles
Shadow Box
This style of fence provides good privacy due to the overlapping of the pickets on each side of the fence. Aesthetically, this fence looks identical on both side and allows airflow and sunlight to the plants and grass adjacent to the fence. The optional cap rail covers the dog eared fence pickets and modernizes each fence section.
Side By Side
This style of fence provides very good privacy due to the side by side arrangement of the pickets. Please keep in mind once the pickets are fastened- the boards will shrink by 1/8in. each allowing minimal sunlight and airflow. Aesthetically, this fence style looks different on each side and would need to be rotated every other section to maintain a neighbor-friendly fence. This is the most economical fence style.
Board on Board
This style of fence provides excellent privacy due to the board on board arrangement of the pickets. Aesthetically, this fence style looks different on each side and would need to be rotated every section to maintain a neighbor-friendly fence. Airflow and light transmission is limited due to the solid arrangement of the pickets. The optional cap rail covers the dog eared fence pickets and modernizes each fence section.
Fence Height AVAILABLE IN 4 DIFFERENT HEIGHTS
