Strong and Dependable, Aluminum Fences are Built to Last- Thursday, October 25, 2018

Some things are a one-time deal, like buying an aluminum fence. Quality aluminum fencing is strong and dependable, and will last for the rest of your life.

Aluminum Fences are Virtually Indestructible

If your priority is strength and longevity, a well made aluminum fence is your very best option. Aluminum fences are known to have the strength of wrought iron fences despite being a lighter weight fencing material. They’re more affordable than iron fencing, but they are built to last for life. The weather can’t bother it, the wind can’t move it, and pests can’t eat it, so there’s no need for re-fencing after a decade. Quality aluminum fencing is manufactured with a protective powder coating, making this metal fencing virtually indestructible. It cannot rust or corrode no matter how much rain or flooding there is on your property.

Resilient Against Mother Nature

Chemically, aluminum is not naturally susceptible to harsh weather, but our aluminum fencing is engineered differently. Because of its powder coating, aluminum fencing is resilient to just about anything. Unlike steel and iron, aluminum won’t rust. Unlike wood, aluminum won’t rot. It will stand strong even after enduring multiple ice, hail, and snow storms. No matter what type of climate you live in, or wear and tear, it’s unlikely your aluminum fence will ever get dented or damaged. The color and quality won’t be bothered by excessive rain or moisture. The color won’t fade after years of exposure to sunlight.

Also, thanks to ActiveYards’ SolarGuard ingenuity, the color of your aluminum fence is further guaranteed to stay like- new. SolarGuard is the proprietary color retention technology that helps protect your fence from the sun’s harmful rays.

ActiveYards Aluminum Fences are Maintenance-Free

When you have an ActiveYards aluminum fence, there is no maintenance involved with keeping your fence in pristine condition. While your fence is protecting your property, it’s also protecting itself. This thick, powder-coated material is made to protect itself and maintain its sturdy condition. You won’t need to repaint it like iron fences. You won’t need to restain it like wood fences. You won’t need to replace broken or rotted posts. The most maintenance you will have is simply hosing it down once a season. This is only necessary to remove dirt and debris from the surface to keep it looking clean and polished.

Further Protection: ActiveYards Warranty Covers Aluminum Fencing

These aluminum fences are so strong and durable that they come with a solid guarantee for life. Customers can rest assured that their fence will last, and if there is any flaw in the manufacturing that compromises the quality, the warranty will protect your investment. The ActiveYards fence company reliably covers all of their residential and commercial aluminum fences with a warranty.

Smart Design: Lightweight and Innovative Construction

Besides their incredible strength, aluminum fences have other smart design features making them a top choice for residential and commercial properties. ActiveYards uses a rackable design so these fences can be installed directly on the ground while eliminating gaps. ActiveYards products come with patented fencing systems, Corigin being the most popular one. Corigin construction connects pickets and rails from the inside out and fortifies the fence’s core. With this system, ActiveYards’ produces aluminum fences that are built to last longer than other aluminum fences. This smart design also eliminates the need for screws, which can become rusty and loose over time.

Aluminum is a Lightweight Fencing Material

Aluminum fencing is much lighter in weight than iron, steel, and even wood fencing. Its weight is comparable to vinyl and PVC. Being lightweight makes aluminum fencing significantly less expensive to manufacture and ship. This helps to lower the cost. Because aluminum is lightweight, it also makes handling during installation easier. Being lightweight means the labor cost for professional installation is lower. It also makes it easier to install fences on your own.

Commercial Fences: Grades of Aluminum Fencing

If you’re shopping for an aluminum fence for industrial purposes, you should know that varying degrees of aluminum are available. Do some research into which grade of aluminum suits your needs before deciding on your commercial fencing. Regardless of the grade you choose, aluminum fences stand strong through all seasons.

Top Style: Not Your Grandfather’s Aluminum Fence- Thursday, October 25, 2018

While aluminum fences can last several generations, we’ve come a long way in the past decade. See what’s available today and find a gorgeous style to nicely compliment your yard!

Aluminum Fences Have Great Curb Appeal

When is the last time you shopped for an aluminum fence? The styles and features available today are far better than old metal fences that we’ve seen in the past. Your property can actually look ten times better with a new aluminum fence! You just need to choose the right style, decorative accents, and functional features to compliment your property. Here’s what you need to know:

Fence Styles to Compliment Your Property

Because of the wide selection of choices in aluminum fencing, it’s easy to find something that will blend in with the existing beauty and style of your home or business. If you feel your home or business’ exterior is looking drab or lacks character, an aluminum fence can enhance the look of the overall property. Aluminum fences pair especially well with contemporary homes. For buildings with stone, brick, or stucco siding, aluminum fencing gives a touch of added class.  To give a more stately look, add a fence post cap in an ornamental design or picket-style. With all that’s available in aluminum fencing, it’s no surprise that it’s getting mentions in design blogs and is on high demand.

Decorative Fence Accessories

Ornamental designs are timeless and well sought after for residential properties. Achieving a Victorian era wrought iron fence appearance is easy and cheaper to do with aluminum ornament embellishments. This feature is very limited in wood fencing and is very expensive in steel and iron fencing. Being that aluminum is lightweight and can be easily welded when heated, you won’t have to wait so long or pay as much for ornament customizations. ActiveYards offers a few ornament options like the Diamond from the Harbor Series. One way to achieve an ornamental appearance is to add an ornamental gate or fence post caps. For especially unique post caps, look for the Royal Finial, Triad Finial, Estate Scroll, and Butterfly Scroll. Because aluminum doesn’t rust, your ornamental designs will never look unattractive or uncared for in your yard.

Consider Your Visibility and Property Line

Do you want a decorative fence or are you looking for more privacy? Are you concerned about keeping people out of your yard, or keeping kids and pets safely inside of your property line? Identify what your priorities are and we’ll help you to choose the perfect aluminum fence for you!

Good Visibility

Aluminum fences are best if you’re looking to maximize visibility. Because aluminum fences have spatial posts and rails, there is no obstruction of view from either side of the fence. You can easily see out and others can easily see your property. Let your hard work on roofing, siding, landscaping, or gardening shine. While shopping for an aluminum fence, keep in mind that the color and look of your fence should compliment your yard and home, especially since they are all in clear view.

Property Line Precision

Aluminum fences have the ability to adjust to any and all slopes on your property. They have such precision in installation because they are “rackable.” Aluminum fences come in rackable sections up to 25 inches over 6 inches with no special rails. Aluminum bars can be placed at any level to give the best precision for your security and safety. This ability to be rackable means they can be constructed closely to or even on the ground making sure pets and little ones can’t get through any gaps. With aluminum, you can successfully fence every part of your property from the awkward corner angle to the bumps and curves in your property.

Get Exactly What You Want with Aluminum Fences

Aluminum fencing allows for a range of design and customization. Here’s why you can have it all when it comes the look of your aluminum fence.

Variety of Styles

Choosing a fence style is basically the same as selecting the facade of your home. It's what people will see at first glance. Therefore, the style of your fence should go along with the style of your siding. Aluminum fences come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, designs, and colors, so there shouldn’t be a problem finding an aluminum fence that compliments your home or business. Because aluminum is a lightweight metal that can be used over and over again, it is very easy to make customizations. Customizations can include a choice of color, a fence post cap design, a mix of posts, or a variety of racking techniques. The styles are endless and more and more designs regularly become available. You can choose to have lots of embellishments or keep your aluminum fence simple. More traditional looking fence styles are offered in aluminum fencing, too, like the Travertine from the Harbor Series. Flat, smooth, curved, or spikey top, the choice is yours.

Your Choice of Color

Again, aluminum fencing is no longer limited to that ‘90s silver chain link fence image that you may have in your mind. Thanks to anodizing, a manufacturing process that bonds charged particles to more efficiently paint metal, aluminum fences are available in all kinds of colors. Once they have the anodized primer, the aluminum goes through electrostatic painting. This powder coating process involves dipping electrically conductive parts into a tank of paint that is then electrostatically charged fusing the particles to the metal. This process can also be done by an electrostatic spray painting process, which is more commonly used on fences that have already been installed. ActiveYards’ generally only carries aluminum fences in black or white. However, it’s common to find green, blue, gold, bronze, and sandstone anodized aluminum fences. You can choose the color that best suits your style and property.


Because of their look, strength, and customization, aluminum fences are a perfect option for almost anywhere. Most commonly you might have first seen aluminum fences as the go-to material for pool enclosures and gates. That being said, they appeal to many residential properties like personal homes (front and back yards), estates, apartment and condominium buildings, housing authorities, and animal/ pet and child enclosures. Aluminum fences also work great at commercial and public properties like office complexes, parking lots, cemeteries, parks and playgrounds, gardens, farms and ranches, security perimeters, and industrial properties. Convenient to install, aluminum fencing works well on all surfaces, flat or sloped, so no need to worry about gaps or awkward transitions.
