Jerith Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Jerith Aluminum Fence better than other aluminum fences on the market?
Here is a quick list of what sets a Jerith Fence apart from the competition:
  • FencCoat Finish – withstands 3,000 hours of salt spray testing and 5 years of exposure in Florida versus 1,000 hours and 1 year for others; twice the thickness and hardness of wet paints; environmentally friendly.
  • HS-35 Alloy – used in all of our components (even the pickets) for added strength.
  • Gates – have a welded frame that allows them to support 250 lbs.; come with a standard magnetic handle latch that works every time.
  • Alloy used for castings (caps, wall mounts, finials, etc.) – more corrosion-resistant than the cheaper, more common alloys that others use.
  • Screws – have an adhesive patch to help keep them tight; square drive for added security.
  • Jerith – oldest and largest aluminum fence manufacturer; 45 years experience; third generation family business; products made in USA; most orders ship within 2 weeks.
  • Lifetime Warranty - backed by an established company that is a leader in the industry.

I need a fence next week. What can I do?
We ship almost every Jerith fence style in one week or less! There are no restrictions regarding the height or style of fence that we can ship this quickly. Arched top gates and large Industrial gates (including cantilevers) may take longer if we do not have them in stock. Fences that are coated white may take a few days longer as well.

How is the fence installed?
Jerith Aluminum Fences are installed by setting a post in concrete and sliding the horizontal rails of a section into the pre-punched holes in the post. A second post is then set at the other end of the section. A second section slides into the second post, and so on. If you need less than a full section, simply cut the rails to the size you need with a saw. Click here for the full installation instructions for Jerith Aluminum Fence.

Installation of Patriot Fence allows you to set all of the posts first, then install the sections using brackets.

Can the fence curve?
If your fence line bends, the sections can easily be angled in the posts to follow most curves. For a very tight curve, just cut the sections in half and put another post between the two sections. The sections themselves can not be bent without ruining their structural integrity however.

Can the fence follow a downhill slope?
Most of our standard aluminum fence sections can follow the contour of the ground. This is called either raking or racking. The fences drop about one foot over the 6' length of a section. If a greater slope is needed, sections can be specially fabricated as "double-punched sections" to traverse a 45 degree angle. Patriot Fence and Regency "Plus" styles can not rake at all, while Concord, and 400 Series fence can only rake about 6 inches over their length.

What is the post spacing?
For Ovation, Encore, Regency, and Patriot, the posts should be spaced 72" on-center. Industrial fence posts need a 71-1/2" spacing on-center, while Residential fences have a 72-1/2" post spacing.

What are the standard colors?
Patriot Fence is only available in black, while our aluminum fences come in a black, white or bronze finish. Finials, ball caps and scrolls are also available in a gold finish, as well as black, white or bronze.

Are custom colors available?
Yes, but there are two conditions that must be met. We can only coat custom colors from October to March (our slow season) and the job must have at least 1,000 feet of fence. Also, since custom colors can not undergo the same testing that our standard colors have passed, we can only guarantee the finish for 5 years.

What fences meet the IRC/ICC/BOCA code for swimming pool enclosures?
Here are the heights and styles of fence that meet building code requirements for fences that need to have less than 4" between pickets and 45" between rails, or less than 1-3/4" between pickets with any rail spacing:
48" tall – Encore, Ovation, 400 Series Residential, Patriot 6 gauge
52" tall – Bravo, Symphony
54" tall – 200 Series Residential, Windsor, Windsor Plus
57" tall – Style 101 & 111 Residential, Concord
60" tall – All Regency styles, 200/400 Series Residential, Patriot 6 gauge
72" tall – All Regency styles, 100/200/400 Series Residential, Patriot 6 gauge, Concord

Can the fence attach to brick columns or the side of my house?
Yes, we have wall mount castings that allow the fence sections to connect to any flat surface. These fit over the ends of the rails and attach to the flat surface with two screws. We also have adjustable wall mounts if you need to come off the flat surface at an angle up to 45 degrees.

How far apart should I space my columns so the sections will be evenly spaced?
The distance between columns is the standard post spacing multiplied by the number of sections you want between the columns, less the width of one post. For example, for three Ovation sections between columns, 3 sections times 72" (the standard post spacing) minus 2" for the post, equals 214" (17'-10") between columns, not 18' as you might expect.

Can the fence mount on a patio/deck?
To fasten a post onto a concrete slab, we recommend that you core-drill the concrete if at all possible. We do offer deck mount castings, however, they should not be used on fences over 48" tall.

How do I get a replacement part?
If you just need a part or two, then contact our Customer Service Department at 330-342-3744 from 8AM – 5PM Monday through Friday.

Can I use these products as railings?
Only Encore Railing has been tested to meet the strict building code requirements for deck railing. (It is not to be used as a balcony railing however.) Our fences are not designed to be used as railings and we will not warrant their use as a railing.
