A fence can be built to keep something in, keep something or someone out, reduce noise, block an unwanted view, or to add aesthetics. There are safety factors to consider in the material, construction, and height of the fence. For example:
But when it is the fences or gates we are talking about, taking care of only the looks is not enough. The security aspects are also vital to ensure your property remains safe. So meeting this end, especially for domestic properties, fence designers and manufacturers also add the strength and locks along with the stylish looks and see to it that you drift off to a peaceful slumber at night.
Metal is another material choice that offers a completely different look and style. While metal pergolas are rather expensive, they do offer a whole new level of sturdiness and durability, even more so than plastic. Cast iron is a common metal choice, though it is very heavy and will rust when exposed to the elements. Aluminum is better alternative, because it's lightweight, yet still extremely strong. When shopping for aluminum pergolas, be sure to inquire about the hardness rating of the metal. Hardness ratings of aluminum should be T-4, T-5, or T-6, with T-6 being the hardest, or strongest, and thus the most preferable. The other major advantage of aluminum is that it will not rust.
If you go with this type of fence, be sure to frequently check the batteries in the collar, and also be sure the control box is powered on and working correctly. Do not get lulled into the belief that if the collar is on the dog is guaranteed to be safe. Some systems will automatically increase the level of shock if the dog challenges the fence, in other cases you must be on the alert for this and have the company come out and increase the charge level. This type of fence is especially popular in subdivisions and other neighborhoods that do not allow visible fencing.
