Standard Post Caps for your posts, and
Panel to post connection screws, powder coated


Cement for in-ground posts, or
Bolts for welded plated, surface mount posts.

Aluminum Fence Panels can be easily trimmed-to-fit on-site.
Trim 1 foot off of 1 fence panel or trim 3 inches off all 4 pieces for symmetry.
Each Aluminum Post Product Page includes an Easy Post Chart.
Standard and Rackable fence panel / rails are inserted and set into prepunched post without mounts.
One of the many benefits to GreatFence design is that slight slopes do not require blank posts or mounts when racking for slight or medium slopes.

Same concept for other measurements.  If you had a 100 foot straight run, you could a) order 17 - 6 foot wide panels, 16 LINE posts, and 2 END posts, or b) order 15 - 7 foot wide panels, 14 LINE posts and 2 END posts, or c) order 13 - 8 foot wide panels, 12 LINE posts, and 2 END posts.  Wider panels means less posts and less posts to install.
