Most residential areas in the U.S. need a fence to protect their property from animals, trespassers, and vandalism. Especially if you have a front yard garden or an isolated backyard, the need for a fence is non-negotiable. However, investing in any random fence purchased from a retail or big box store is not a great choice. You need to get a good fence customized that adds to the curb appeal of your property and at the same time offers enough privacy and security. Quality checking is as important as ASTM certification when you are looking for a high-quality fence. Duramax Vinyl Fences exceed ASTM F964 quality parameters across every category, which makes the material an exceptional option.
How strong is a vinyl fence?
The ASTM certification covers the poly vinyl-chloride (PVC) exterior profiles used for agricultural, commercial, and residential fencing and railing. The materials employed in the external profiles of the fence are the rigid polyvinyl chloride compounds in a single homogeneous extrusion or co-extrusion of two or more PVC compounds in different layers. Our materials pass through rigorous testing to meet quality standards like extrusion quality, dimensional tolerances, and weatherability. Passing the ASTM testing methods and identifying exterior profiles means that our fences provide dimensional stability, impact resistance, and warpage resistance. The material used for fencing also goes through impact testing on weathered specimens.
Are vinyl fences ASTM-certified?
Duramax vinyl fences are manufactured from 100% virgin vinyl, raw PVC resin, and potent stabilizers and additives. We ensure the fence materials are of top-notch quality and pass through numerous processes to maintain their quality. Our fences exceed ASTM quality standards and are ideal for securing your home with utmost privacy. Once installed, our DIY Duramax Fences will not need any recurring expenses. Our fences are durable and strong and won’t require any repair or repainting for many years. To maintain the vinyl fences, cleaning once a fortnight with a garden hose is all that’s needed for general upkeep and maintenance. What else? Duramax Fences also come with a transferable limited lifetime warranty, which makes our fences a great choice.
Are vinyl fences UV-resistant?
Many vinyl fences are susceptible to heat warpage and start to sag during the hot summers. But not Duramax Fences. We use a unique DuraResin formulation that makes our fences exceptionally strong and resistant to the scorching UV rays of the sun. Over 12 parts of titanium dioxide and potent UV inhibitors are used to manufacture high-quality fences that won’t warp in the heat and can handle the elements for several years. Heat, humidity, and impact cannot damage Duramax fences, as we use top-notch materials for manufacturing the fence panels. Our fences have thicker walls than other ordinary vinyl fences, but this is a great quality. The thick fence walls eliminate problems commonly faced by thinner fence materials, such as fence splitting, sagging, and breaking. This ensures Duramax Fences can stand strong and tall for years without needing repairs or professional heavy-duty maintenance.
Can vinyl fences survive cyclones and hurricanes?
We all know that a wooden fence is a bad choice for places susceptible to hurricanes, cyclones, and storms. Investing in a strong vinyl fence is recommended to withstand such weather extremities. Vinyl fences are extremely flexible and can withstand hurricane-force wind gusts up to 105 mph. Being a waterproof material, our fences do not rust, rot, or fade. So vinyl fences are indeed a great choice for places vulnerable to bad weather like hurricanes, cyclones, and storms.
Are vinyl fences safe for pets and kids?
The ASTM-certified vinyl fence is indeed extremely safe for pets and kids. Our fences are lead-free, non-toxic, and pet-friendly. Unlike wooden fences, vinyl fences won’t splinter and don’t have any rough edges that might injure pets and children. Unlike traditional fences, Duramax vinyl fences have no external brackets or unsightly screws. Our high-end vinyl fences with no external hardware have a smooth finish, making them an ideal choice for pet parents and homeowners with kids around. Moreover, our fences are eco-friendly and a perfect choice for residential as well as commercial spaces.
ASTM F964-13 – The be-all and end-all of vinyl fencing
ASTM F964-13 is the ultimate testing specification for vinyl fences. The main purpose of ASTM certification is to establish a professional quality standard for exterior vinyl profiles for commercial and residential railing and fencing usage. The high-quality ASTM-certified Duramax vinyl fencing maintains uniform color without any structural changes like peeling, cracking, chipping, pitting, or flaking even after weathering. Vinyl fences can survive heavy impacts and blows and stand strong for many years with minimal care and maintenance.
Not all vinyl fences are strong, and some are definitely weaker than others. That’s why we suggest purchasing a great quality vinyl fence from a reputed manufacturer. Shopping from any random store might be more affordable, but these fences don’t last long and need to get replaced after a few years. A fence is not a spur-of-the-moment investment. It should be more of a long-term investment and a lifetime addition to your property. Duramax Fences are a cut above the rest.
