Each rail is installed in a continuous length allowing impact to be absorbed by the entire length of the fence without risking injury to your horse. The flexible design means no caught legs or entanglement injuries.

Fence life is 30+ years with a 30-year limited warranty. It will never splinter, rust, rot, crack, or fade! Nominal maintenance costs for accessory and post replacements.

The molded Centaur fence high-tensile polymer bracket with steel reinforced bar is virtually indestructible. The exclusive design allows the rail to move through the brackets dispersing impact. Stability bars prevent “buckling” due to upward or downward pressure on the rail extending rail life.

Centaur fence withstands temperature conditions from -40°F to 200°F without becoming brittle or experiencing any kind of breakdown.

Available in white, black, or brown. Centaur HTP® 5” rail is easily combined with other Centaur fencing to fit your budget or design needs. Made in the USA.

Vinyl Horse Fence

Vinyl Horse Fence Picture

PVC vinyl horse fencing is a low maintenance, eco-friendly alternative to wood.

It looks like classic white rail fencing, but requires way less maintenance. It’s easy to install over varied terrain. It is nontoxic and 100% recyclable. Vinyl horse fencing does not corrode like steel fence or need any toxic chemical treatments to prevent rot like wood fence.

Vinyl fence is softer than the other physical barrier fences, so injuries are less likely. Also, it is highly visible to horses which also reduces accidents.

High quality vinyl horse fencing usually comes with a lifetime warranty. But check the details of the warranty before you buy — it may not cover damage caused by your horses.

This material can be expensive compared to other types of fencing and may not be appropriate if your horses tend to kick or chew on fences. Consider integrating an electric wire fence into your design to reduce wear and tear.

When purchasing, make sure it is certified for livestock confinement. Some farm and ranch products are decorative fence only and not designed for confinement of horses.

Opt for 100% virgin vinyl which offers the highest quality and strength.

Maintenance is minimal for vinyl horse fencing. Check the posts and rails for cracks and holes and patch if needed. Test posts for firmness on a seasonal basis. An occasional cleaning with plain water and a soft bristled brush will keep your fence looking great. A gas-powered pressure washer can speed this chore, but be careful to use the lowest power setting to avoid damaging the finish.

Wood Horse Fence

The types of boards used for wooden horse fences are oak, poplar, and pine. The wooden posts are treated.

There are a few different styles of wooden horse fence boards, but the mainstay of horse farms is either 3 or 4 board. Oak wooden horse fence boards are about half the cost as Centaur fence and a little less than Vmesh wire. Wooden horse fences are easy to repair. Constant maintenance is required to keep your board horse fence looking its best and prolong replacement.

Good wooden horse fence boards should last about 20 years if you use oak boards and well treated posts. During those 20 years the fence needs to be repainted about once every 3 years or less. Anything over 3 years and the wear and tear on the fence will be noticeable, but it also depends on how many horses you have in the field and how hard they are on the fence. Oak boards are the best boards to use for livestock since they will resist a horse that cribs much longer than either pine or poplar. Oak is a hardwood whereas poplar and pine are softwood and they will not last and not put up to the rigors of animals and weather as well as oak. If you do use pine or poplar boards then you want to get them treated, this will allow them to last as long as oak only if the animals do not wear them out.

The longevity of wooden horse fences can also be affected by the type of post that you use. Of course all fences need to have a well treated 6 inch faced or round post. A 6 inch post provides a lot more durability as they can withstand more punishment and weather than 5 inch post. The downside to faced posts, especially when used in conjunction with a Baton or face board, is that the boards will rot out quicker. By rot out quicker I mean maybe a few years difference in the life of your fence. I have taken down fence with a baton on it that was 20 years old and you could tell that it was rotting but the fence was still fairly stout. If you are lax about the painting and upkeep of your fence then it will rot the board that much quicker.

Round post are probably the most used type of post since they are the cheapest and easiest to get. Since the board has less contact with a round post it will get more paint coverage, and will not rot as fast. But the same thing that keeps the board from rotting out quicker also gives you a weaker fence. As boards dry out they will shrink this will cause a gap to appear in between the boards where they meet on the front of the post. If you have a round post that already does not have much surface to nail to and then the board shrinks it will give a much weaker fence than with a faced post. Say for example you have livestock running on both sides of a fence. A round post will be very weak against the animals on the back side of the fence. They won’t have to try hard at all to push the boards off. If you want a more practical example take a hammer and try to knock a board off from the back side of the fence. Then try from the front side. You will see the difference for yourself.

No matter which post you use you should have a baton on your wood fence. A baton will do 3 things for a fence. Make it stronger, stop the boards from warping and make it much better looking. A baton does hide the shrinking boards, so you will not see the gaps in them. The baton goes on the face of the post and will hide and actually help stop the boards from shrinking as much. Batons also increase the strength of your fence by linking all the boards together. If you have livestock on both sides of a board fence then you really should have a baton on it.

Another good thing about boards is that you don’t have to do anything extra for the curves. With all other fence you have to brace or concrete the post in the ground but with boards all you have to do is drive the post and hang the boards. And since curves really make a fence look a lot better and make it safer this above any other reason makes boards a good choice. Board fence when it’s painted regularly and repaired on a needed basis is a really attractive fence and can complete a farms look.

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.
