Aluminum Fence Grades
Aluminum fences come in three grades ranging from thinner to thicker materials. A residential grade fence is sufficient for a residential neighborhood that does not have excessive people walking by it. However, if your fence will be located next to a high traffic sidewalk then commercial grade would be a better sturdier choice.
Commercial grade aluminum fences are slightly thicker than a residential grade fence. This is done for a fence that is in a high traffic area, like a hotel pool or commercial plaza. This extra thickness allows for the fence to take a little more abuse without breaking or bending.
Industrial grade aluminum is the thickest grade and is meant for extra security of warehouses or a military base. This level of protection is expensive, but worth it when you have to trust you can keep out a vehicle or unwanted personnel.
