  4. Aluminum Fence – On Center Chart

The aluminum fence chart below is just a guide. Do not commit to all of your post holes in advance of receiving your products. Both ends of each fence panel are inserted and “set” within each post so you gain very little, if any, distance in your fence runs with each post. The measurements below are approximate. We strongly recommended that you round up your fence run footage measurements to the next foot. Fence panels can easily be trimmed (the width) on-site. Let’s say you have a 23-foot straight run. Order four 6-foot wide fence panels and then you can trim a foot off one of them on-site, or you can trim 3 inches off of all 4 panels.
