UV Inhibitor: The sun's ultra-violet (UV) rays are extremely damaging to any material that is not protected against it. Yellowing, chalking or fine surface cracks are common symptoms of UV damage. Our PVC is extruded with titanium dioxide in the mix, just not spray-coated on later. Titanium dioxide is the best, most widely used white pigment and UV inhibitor on the market today because of its bright, white color, resistance to discoloration and very high refractive index. This pigment efficiently transforms destructive UV light energy into heat, which then dissipates in the air. Titanium dioxide is so effective and safe, it can even be found in most blockout sunscreens.
1. How long has PVC/Vinyl fence been around?
PVC/Vinyl Fencing has been available since 1984. It is the fastest growing product in the fencing industry with sustained annual growth at more than 30%.
2. How strong is it?
It has five times the tensile strength of wood and four times the flexibility. It flexes under load making it strong enough to safely hold cattle and horses. Our manufacturers use impact modifiers to make our fence strong and forgiving for horses and riders as well as other farm animals.
3. Can I install it myself?
If you can use a level, a tape measure, and post hole digger and a string line - you can do the job yourself. The posts are set in concrete, the rails then simply slot into the pre cut holes within them. We have written instructions available that will be sent to you with your order. For larger jobs, some people like to hire a professional for the hole drilling or the entire job.
4. Can I put a hot wire on it?
Yes you can. The entire PVC/vinyl post is an insulator which means you won't need any special hardware. All you have to do is drill a hole in the posts and string the wire through. You should probably use a wire that is resistant to rust and corrosion.
5. How does it compare to wood?
It is stronger, lasts much longer, safer, looks better, and costs much less over time. Initially the costs are about the same as wood but will depend on local wood prices and then there is the painting of the timber to also take into account, but over the life of it is about one third of the cost meaning huge savings!
6.How do you set the posts?
The posts are set in concrete in the ground approximately 600mm deep and in some cases cement is put inside the posts with re-bar for exceptional strength.
7. Do I need to paint it?
No. The colour of the vinyl goes all the way through so it cannot be scratched or chipped off which means it will never need to be painted.
8. Will it discolour or become brittle over time?
Because our Vinyl fence use a superior durable grade and high content (10 parts per 100 parts) of non-chalking TiO2 (titanium dioxide) and ultraviolet inhibitors that protects the vinyl (PVC) from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays. As long as your fence is kept clean, with a periodic wash from a garden hose, it will not turn yellow. As a result, we can assure our products with a lifetime warranty against yellowing.
9. Can PVC/Vinyl fence break?
Vinyl fence can break if subjected to a direct impact (e.g. an automobile running into a fence line). Under normal use, the fence will not break when installed properly. Planks, pickets and rails are easily replaced if damaged.
10. How does PVC/Vinyl fence stand up to the wind?
Our fences are designed to withstand normal wind loads. The amount of load is dependent on the style of fence, installation of the posts and horizontal rails. If installed according to our installation guide, the fences are designed to stand up to normal wind loads.
11. Will PVC/Vinyl fence become brittle in winter?
PVC/Vinyl fence will become less flexible in cold weather conditions. However, unless subjected to unusual impact, it will not break or crack.
12. Will PVC/Vinyl fence crack, chip, peel or rot?
Vinyl fencing should never crack, chip, peel or rot.
13. Are PVC/Vinyl fences maintenance free?
Yes, under normal conditions all that is required is an annual washing of the fence to keep it looking new.
14. How can I clean a PVC/Vinyl fence?
As with all exterior products, a fence will become dirty when exposed to the elements. A mild detergent and water solution should be sufficient to keep your fence looking new. For tough stains, soft scrub or baking soda work well.
