Custom structures make outside areas more safe & enjoyable

Do you have an unsightly nitrogen tank, dumpster or other area that needs a fresh look?

A custom structure or fence makes your outside area more enjoyable by hiding these less than attractive or dangerous areas.

Last week at a business in Oconomowoc, we were contracted to build an attractive, custom structure around a nitrogen tank that not only covered the tank from sight but protected the tank from traffic. The structure needed to be 10’ tall to match the height of the nitrogen tank and have double drive gates to access the tank.

We immediately went to work designing a custom structure using one of our vinyl fences from American Manufactured Vinyl Fence as a base keeping in mind this custom nitrogen tank structure must meet the needs of our customer and city regulations.

Here are the construction details on how we created this complex, functional, and attractive custom structure:

  • We used our Zachary 6’ vinyl privacy fence as the base of the design extending the fence height to 10’ tall. We installed 2-1/2” schedule 40 galvanized pipe into a 12” concrete footing set 48” in ground.  The galvanized pipe extended out of ground 9’.  These were installed at needed spots for posts.  Then we used donuts (high density post spacers) from Modern Fence Technologies.  We placed four of the donuts over each galvanized post, tightened them down and then slid the 5x5x10’ vinyl post over that.  The schedule 40 galvanized post strengthened the post up to handle the needed load.
  • Next we installed 2 aluminum H style post stiffeners at the spot of the gate. These are heavy duty stiffeners designed to handle the load of the gates.  With this being double drive gates it’s extremely important to have the post installed properly.  We then sleeved the 5x5xx10’s over the top of the stiffeners.
  • We then added three 2”x7”x5’ long rails; one at top, middle and bottom. At the bottom and mid rail we put a galvanized stiffener to increase the load strength even more. Most of our competitors use a 1-1/2”x 5-1/2” rails…not the heavy duty 2”x7”.
  • Then we add out 7/8”x7” interlocking tongue and groove panels between the rails. Many companies use a ½” or a 7/8” tongue and groove panel. (It just doesn’t seem strong enough to me.)
  • Finally we hang our double gates. Our double gates are one of the only vinyl gate system with a fully welded galvanized steel frame welded completely inside the gates.  So you get the added strength of the steel frame without getting the look of the steel frame. We finish it off with stainless steel hinges, latches, caps and a 1” thick drop rod from Modern Fence Technologies.

Oh yeah…I forgot to mention that we installed 3 6-5/8” schedule 40 bollards set in a 12”x48” concrete footing standing 48” out of the ground to protect the custom structure and nitrogen tank from being damaged.

So if you have a nitrogen tank or any other unsightly object, or just need some privacy, call us at A to Z Quality Fencing. We can make your outdoor area more enjoyable with a custom structure or fence.

Much like our fence pickets, our company takes care to only build with rails with minor defects. Taking the time to use premium fence materials helps ensure your family can enjoy the security and privacy of your new fence for years to come.

Decorative Details

Our team is committed to going the extra mile in every detail of your fence project.

Customize your fence project by asking about our add-ons we offer: decorative post caps, trim, and custom railings.

Stronger Posts

We understand that your fence is only as strong as your posts. This is why we take great care to use the strongest posts, free of defects. We not only offer heavy-duty wood posts but our no-mess, no-dig installation adds a galvanized steel post inside the wooden post for an even stronger post.

All high-quality posts are built to ensure that your fence stands strong for years.

Better Fence Pickets

We build with only the best fence pickets. These are not the typical fence pickets anyone can buy from the local big-box stores. We have partnered with suppliers to provide the highest quality wood fencing materials.

Modern, Sleek Design

A to Z Quality Fencing’s proprietary Modern Aluminum Fence features one of the most modern, sleek designs on the market. These fences are long-lasting and bring the best of A to Z’s vinyl (including simulated wood finishes) and aluminum products together, allowing for custom fabrication of modern, industrial, privacy fencing.

Stronger Top Rails

The Modern Aluminum Fence top rails are routed into the posts creating an even stronger fence installation! The U channels are screwed to the frame and the entire fence is quickly assembled on-site using our no-mess, no-dig installation.

Stronger Fencing

Compared to wood, vinyl fencing is much stronger. Vinyl fencing is flexible and durable, which helps vinyl out-perform wood fencing in windy conditions and with environmental exposure to UV rays and weather.

Versatile Inlay Options

Want to create a super durable fence that’s as unique as you? With a Modern Aluminum Fence, you can pair A to Z Quality Fencing’s commercial aluminum fence with the inlay that best fits your style. Our vinyl inlay is available in 9 colors including various simulated wood tones, so you can create the exact look you want.

Durable Frame

Modern Aluminum Fence posts are composed of galvanized steel posts covered by our commercial-grade aluminum with its superior powder coat finish to create a stronger, longer-lasting fence that is more than weather-resistant – it will not rust with exposure to the elements!

Easy to Clean

Vinyl fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose. If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are very easy to clean, making them a great option for low-maintenance fencing.

More Options Available

Vinyl fencing is available in a wide variety of configurations to match any property, home, or purpose. Iconic, white vinyl picket fences give a feel of classic Americana with that white-picket-fence-style. Darker vinyl fences can be installed to make a space look more elegant or modern. From short picket to tall privacy, vinyl fencing can be designed to enhance your backyard or business.

Strict Standards

All our aluminum fence meets BOCA (Building Officials and Code Administrators) code. These strict standards ensure your fencing is sturdy, durable, and non-climbable, protecting your property no matter if you are fencing in a business, backyard, or swimming pool!

The BOCA health and safety codes are critical when installing fencing around a swimming pool because they prevent children from getting over, under, or through our aluminum fencing.

Beautiful Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are a bright, bold fence choice. Available in a variety of colors, vinyl fencing can be installed in a many configurations to help you enhance the beauty of your property. And, because vinyl isn’t as porous as wood, vinyl fences retain their color and finish much longer than wood fencing so you can enjoy your fence for years to come.

Superior Powder Coating

Our superior powder coating provides a smooth, durable finish, more resistant to chips, scratches, fading, rust, and corrosion than other finishes. This long-lasting, low-maintenance finish results from our application and curing processes that melt the powder particles to create a smooth, continuous, and permanent bond to the aluminum.

In addition, our paint finish meets AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) specifications.

Custom Fabrication

You’re steps away from a one-of-a-kind aluminum fence made just for you! Our high-quality aluminum fencing comes from our sister company A to Z Fence Supplies. We assemble each aluminum fence to meet your unique design requirements, including color, finials, puppy panels, O-rings, and custom top edges.

Stronger Posts & Hardware

A benefit of choosing our team to install your chain link fence is that we use only the most durable posts and hardware.

Chain-link fences are known for being the last fences standing during hurricanes, tornados, and other severe weather events.

Unparalleled Durability

The weakest point of any fence is where the post comes out of the ground. Our no-mess, no-dig installation process pounds a galvanized steel post into the soil. Then we slide an aluminum post over the galvanized steel posts. A steel post is stronger at ground level than an aluminum post.

Our high-quality aluminum fence, combined with our no-mess, no-dig installation process, creates a highly durable aluminum fence.

Top Quality Rails

We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to ensure your investment is built to last.

Adding a top rail to your chain link fence project creates an extra level of durability and security.
