1. Vinyl Privacy Fence Panels
Privacy fencing is the most common type of vinyl fence available on the market. It’s also what PVC fences are known for – providing total privacy for your Palm Beach County property.
You’ll want to install a privacy fence if you have some of the following problems:
- Your neighbors won’t keep to themselves.
- You have a pool and what to keep your yard private.
- Your dogs have a hard time controlling themselves around passersby.
- You have small children and want to give them a safe and private area to play.
- You live in an area where you worry about people trespassing onto your property.
- You want to limit wind-flow into your yard.
- You love your privacy!
In addition to the standard height of 6′ tall, you can also obtain vinyl privacy fence panels in 7′ or in 8′ heights, if your city allows it, or if you can obtain a variance from your city or municipality.
Vinyl privacy fence panels come in a wide variety of colors, including high end wood grain variations, thought these are more expensive than the standard white models.
If you want something a little fancier, you can opt to purchase the vinyl privacy panels with 2″ x 7″ decorative railing, that has a decorative lip instead of the standard rectangular railing profiles that are generally used.
Lastly, if total privacy isn’t your thing, you can choose a variation of vinyl privacy fence panels that has a window at the top of the panel with either a lattice accent, or a picket accent. These variations allow for 75% privacy, with a small area of visibility. They also look a little better than y
2. Vinyl Semi-Privacy Fence Panels
If you like the idea of privacy, but don’t quite want your yard to be 100% closed off, vinyl semi-privacy fencing is the perfect style for you.
Unlike vinyl privacy fence panels, this style has a small spacing in between each picket that allows for increased visibility and increased wind-flow.
There are a few customization options available when selecting a vinyl semi-privacy fence:
- Choose between a 7/8″ x 6″ picket or 7/8″ x 3″ picket.
- Standard option or option with two different picket widths in alternating pattern.
- Vary your picket spacing from 9/16″ to 3″.
- Choose from standard two rail, three rail, or even four rail option.
3. Vinyl Shadowbox Fence Panels
You may be familiar with shadowbox fencing from the common wooden fence version of shadowbox.
This style features a board on board appearance which is totally private when viewed from the front, but still allows for wind flow at an angle.
If you have a pool on your Palm Beach County property, we modify the placement of the middle rail to conform with ICC pool code requirements and Florida building code requirements which state:
Where the barrier is composed of horizontal and vertical members—and the distance between the tops of the horizontal members is less than 45 inches—the horizontal members must be located on the swimming pool side of the fence.http://www.floridabuilding.org
We also have an option to add a 9″ window of lattice to the top section of your vinyl shadowbox panels, adding even more wind flow and visibility to your perimeter.
4. Vinyl Picket Fence Panels
Everyone is familiar with traditional picket fences, most are made from wood, aluminum, steel, or iron. Our picket fence panels are made from PVC material.
You have two categories for vinyl picket fence panels:
Vinyl Closed Picket Fence Panels
A vinyl closed picket fence panel typically uses two to three rails, and is closed at the top of the section.
Meaning, the pickets, or vertical members, do not protrude through the top railing, and do not have picket caps.
Closed picket fences usually use a smaller 1.5″ width picket, but can use a 3″ or a 6″ picket if requested.
Vinyl Open Picket Fence Panels
Open picket fences differ from closed picket fences because the picket protrude through the top rail and are topped with picket caps.
This style of vinyl picket fence panel can have a flat top, meaning all the pickets are the same length, an arched top, or a scalloped top.
You also have the choice of several picket cap options including sharp or dog-ear.
This style almost excursively uses a 3″ picket, but can use smaller pickets or larger pickets if specially requested.
5. Vinyl Ranch Rail Fence Panels
If you have a large property with significant acreage, or you are a community manager of a large gated community, ranch rail fencing is a great option to establish barriers cost effectively.
In this option of vinyl fence, you can choose from two rail, three rail, four rail, or even a special style referred to as “cross-buck” which features four rails – a top rail, a bottom rail, and two middle rails which form an x-pattern in the center of the panel.
Since ranch rail fences only use rails, and not pickets, the cost is significantly cheaper than other vinyl fence styles.
You can choose between two widths of rails, 1.5″ x 5.5″ or 2″ x 6″, a stronger larger option.
