Which Jerith Fence is Right for Your Home?

Jerith has three different strengths (or grades) of fence that are appropriate for residential usage - our Liberty, Residential, and Regency lines of fencing. Sometimes the differences between these grades can make it a little hard to decide which one is right for you. Here is a quick guide.

Let’s start with our standard Residential line. This type of fence offers the widest variety of heights and styles, and is our most popular. The pickets are 5/8” square and the rails are 1” x 1” U-shaped channels, so that the 3-rail fence sections can hold up to 350 lbs. without permanently bending. For the vast majority of fencing around a home, the Residential Grade of Jerith is the perfect answer. This is what other aluminum fences strive to be!

Our Regency line is a step up and uses slightly larger components. The pickets are ¾” square and the rails are 1½“ high x 1” wide, so they can support over 500 lbs. per section. If you have any concerns about kids or large dogs damaging your fence, or if you simply want a more substantial fence surrounding your property, then our Regency Fence is a better choice for you. The interesting thing about Regency is that even though it is about 50% stronger than our Residential Strength Fence, it only costs about 10-15% more. The additional cost is minimal compared to the added strength. Personally, I think Regency is probably the best “bargain” that we offer.

Finally, our Liberty Fence has component sizes that match our Residential line, but with slightly thinner walls. However, because we use our high-strength HS-35 alloy for Liberty, the sections can still hold over 200 lbs. each. If the price of your fence is more of a concern than its strength, then this is the fence for you. Liberty is priced about 10-15% below our Residential Fence, and is comparable in cost and strength to many Jerith imitations and the imported knock-offs. The Liberty line is only offered in a limited number of heights, colors, and styles.

All three grades of fence are backed by Jerith’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, so any of them will serve you well for many years to come!
