Aluminum Fence Heights

Fence height is all about your specific objectives. Our most popular fence height is 4′ followed by a 5′ height.  We have occasionally installed other heights but it is very seldom.  The 48″ height of fencing matches the old-style popular (1960’s) chain link fencing used to contain dogs.  The 48″ height remains the most popular resident fence height and it also meets most communities’ minimum pool code fence height. The second most popular height is the 5′ (60″) aluminum fence which is a little more formidable and is sometimes required height for pool code. Knoxville (CITY) pool code requires the 5′ height whereas Knox County requires a 48″ height pool fence.

American Classic Arch Gate

Lots of gates to choose from here!  So, let’s start with the purpose of the gate.  You will normally have a point of entry backyard gate for the main entryway. This is usually a 4′ wide gate, which can have decorations and points the way for visitors to the backyard.  I like to use a decorative arch gate to signify the point of entry.  Also, pavers, walkways, landscaping, and flowers can accent and direct the visitor.

A secondary gate, a landscape gate, is usually placed on the far side of the house. This gate should match the rest of the fencing to not draw attention that it is a gate. Used for large lawnmowers and wheelbarrows, there is infrequent usage primarily for large work entry.

An access section is usually installed for times when large equipment is necessary for the backyard.  Pool construction, tree removal, large construction, trucks in the yard, etc. This is a bolted section that can, with a few bolts, open an 8′ to 12′ clearance. Designed for once-a-year removal or less.

For Frequent Usage of a large opening, consider the car gate, a double gate panel. This is for a large opening, is hinged, and has drop rods and a latch.  The double gate can range from a utility gate to the estate gates and may choose the auto gate opener options.
