Whether you’re searching for a fence for a home, a business, or a lakeside getaway, you might find just what you’re looking for in a CourtYard aluminum fence. These fencing systems combine beauty, strength, and durability to create a virtually maintenance-free barrier. If you need an aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting fence or gate that is incredibly easy to install, you can find a CourtYard product to suit your needs. First, let’s explore the unique benefits of a CourtYard aluminum fence.
The Benefits of a CourtYard Aluminum Fence
Aluminum fencing is eco-friendly.
If you’re concerned about your fence’s environmental impact, aluminum fencing might be the perfect option for your home or business. First, most aluminum fencing products (CourtYard products included) contain recycled aluminum. That’s not all: When you eventually replace your fence, it can be recycled again, reducing the amount of landfill waste. Aluminum fences also require very little energy to produce.
Additionally, if green living is a priority for you, you’ll be pleased to hear that CourtYard aluminum fence systems are extremely eco-friendly. These fencing systems use a minimum of 40 percent post-industrial content in the aluminum billet prior to extrusion, and there is zero volatile organic compound (VOC) emission from the powder coating process.
Aluminum fencing requires little maintenance.
So, you want attractive outdoor fencing, but you don’t necessarily want to wipe it down on a daily basis. Where do you start? Wooden fencing is prone to rot and many metal materials are prone to rust. Aluminum fencing, on the other hand, is a great choice for the homeowner who wants aesthetic appeal with very little upkeep. Unlike wood fencing, aluminum never requires painting or refinishing. Plus, it’s extremely easy to clean with a monthly hose-down. Of course, you may also want to give your fencing a deeper clean on a seasonal basis. Other than that, you’ll be pleased to find that aluminum fencing is virtually maintenance-free.
Aluminum fencing is durable.
Do you live in an area prone to extreme weather? Aluminum might be the best option for you. This material is one of the most weather-resistant options on today’s market, standing up remarkably well to rain, snow, ice, and UV rays. Aluminum fencing also resists weather-related corrosion and rust. That unique durability – combined with CourtYard’s warranty – means you’ll get the most bang for your buck with your residential or commercial railing.
CourtYard fencing is highly customizable.
Do you have a keen eye for design? CourtYard aluminum fence systems are available in 12 standard colors, so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit for your desired aesthetic. CourtYard products are painted using an 11-step architectural-grade power coating process (view pages 12-13 of our brochure to learn about each step). All colors cost exactly the same, from basic black and white to natural hues like speckled walnut and sandy shore. Silver is the only exception, with an additional 15 percent cost and a designated minimum order. Can’t find exactly what you’re looking for? Ask us about custom color options.
There are 10 CourtYard aluminum fence styles to choose from in the Hundred Series, and these styles are available in the following heights: 36″, 42″, 48″, 55″, 60″, and 72″. Whether you want a fence with a flat top, spear points, or both, you’ll have a few options. There are also options with spears in a concave or convex curve. In the 1000 Series, there are six models available in heights of 36″, 42″, 48″, 55″, 60″, and 72″. All of these lifetime warranty options are very durable, so you won’t have to worry about future damage. Finally, in the 2000 Series, there are five models to choose from, and they come in heights of 48″, 54″, 60″, and 72″. A ring style is optional, and there is also a welded plate option for posts.
Optional Fencing Features
If you don’t like certain design details that come with the standard fence styles, you can customize your fence with special features and accessories. For example, you might choose a zinc die-cast triad or quad finial in place of the standard spear. On the other hand, you might like to have ball caps in place of standard flat caps. We can also add on a matching gate with customizable opening size, style, and height. Not sure where to start? Talk to our experts about whether you should order a single, double drive, or cantilever gate. If you choose the latter, the cantilever top track rail can be designed as a mid-rail with design components above the top rack. This allows for interesting details like a designer arch or a continuous arch. Gates are also available in all of the 12 standard fence colors, so you don’t have to worry about a mismatched look.
Aluminum fencing is easy to install.
Finally, aluminum fencing is extraordinarily easy for even inexperienced homeowners to install. Aluminum fences work well on both flat and sloped land without creating unsightly gaps in the fencing. Aluminum’s lightweight, flexible nature also makes it extremely easy to work with. Confident do-it-yourself homeowners can install the fencing without much help, but professional installation is also relatively fast and affordable.
