The thickness of the extrusions (posts, rails and vertical pickets or boards) in your vinyl fence can become an important consideration in your purchase decision. We’re proud to provide this information below and more specifically in our detailed specification drawings which are included in our instructions.
Professional Grade Vinyl
- Vinyl Posts (4 ½ x 4 ½) are .080 wall thickness (the per foot weight of this post is equivalent to a standard square 5×5 at .135 wall thickness because of its honeycomb configuration).
- Vinyl Horizontal Rails (1 ½ x 3 ½ , 4 ½ and 5 ½ ) are .090 wall thickness.
- Vinyl Vertical Boards or Pickets Range between .050 and .060 wall thickness.
Please note that vinyl extrusions have normal tolerances of + or – 10%.
