Which Vinyl Fence Is For You?
If you are considering a vinyl fence this year which one is best for you? At Walpole Outdoors we have a variety of choices and styles in both solid and hollow vinyl fencing. But what’s the difference?
Solid Cellular Vinyl
Taking our cue from customers who want to spend less time maintaining their homes and more time to enjoy their outdoor areas, Walpole has become the leading fabricator of low maintenance solid cellular vinyl. Unlike other vinyl, this advanced solid cellular material has the look and feel of natural wood. It is almost impossible to see the difference at a glance.
Available in Walpole’s Freeport Collection, solid cellular vinyl products will not rot or warp, flake or peel, maintaining great looks with little to no upkeep, providing years of enjoyment.
Solid cellular vinyl is milled, crafted, and fabricated like wood by skilled Walpole woodworkers. To support our experienced staff and to complete intricate projects to exacting specifications, we have invested in advanced computer controlled CNC milling equipment. Our special molding ovens help us shape and curve sheets of solid cellular vinyl to economically create custom architectural details.
Walpole has become the leader in the use of this remarkable material through research and development of advanced adhesives, laminating techniques, innovative reinforcement and state-of-the-art paint finishes. Paints are available in over one-hundred Sherwin-Williams vinyl safe colors, with a 25-year guarantee.
Walpole’s family of economical high sheen, maintenance free hollow vinyl fencing is offered in white and in tan. It is fabricated to our highest standards with styles that replicate Walpole classics, including picket, board, post and rail, and lattice fence, and matching gates.
The vinyl on our posts is 0.25′ thick, which is twice as thick as those offered by most other fence companies. Vinyl seats provide more surface areas at the base of our posts, significantly reducing post settling. Where appropriate, our hollow vinyl fence is structurally reinforced with aluminum bottom rails to ensure years of support without sagging. There are no visible fasteners, so each side of your fence replicates the other.
For our hollow vinyl gates, Walpole uses a proprietary hinge system that delivers good looks and proper support. We maintain a solid gate hinge performance through aluminum reinforcement in the gate rails, PVC space filler, and an interlocking carriage bolt and acorn nut. Together, this system secures the hinge and the gate to the aluminum reinforced gatepost.
Hollow vinyl products are crafted at our manufacturing facility to the same exacting standards that have attracted customers to Walpole for more than 75 years. Nothing is lacking in style, detail, and painstaking craftsmanship.
