One big challenge for these types of fence projects has been trying to source decorative metal fence panels.

In the past.

Most metal privacy fence projects were limited to using plain corrugated metal panels fastened to wood posts.

Today, we’re going to look at some beautiful decorative metal fence panels that offer a totally new look!

What Are Decorative Metal Fence Panels?

Decorative metal fence panels are pre-fabricated fence panels that utilize metal to create unique design patterns or shapes adding an an interesting look to your property while delivering the strength of metal.

If you do a quick Google search.

You’ll see all kinds of metal fence panels.

These vary from ornamental fence panels…

…like the ones you might see used as a walkway railing or see-through pool fence.

To laser-cut metal fence panels that offer different cutout shapes and patterns.

And if that’s what you’re looking for.


If, however, you are looking to create privacy with your metal fence…

Usually, you’ll be searching for some kind of solid metal panel.

Traditionally, people used corrugated (wavy) fence panels or some other type of ribbed metal panel.

Here’s an example.

Most of these fences were created using shiny galvanized metal.


New options have arrived on the market.

Now, let’s look at what we call our designer metal fence.

A modern metal privacy fence that opens up a ton of use case options.

Our decorative metal fence panels can be used around backyards, side yards, entertainment venues, commercial properties, patios, pools.

Designer Metal Fence Panels

The strength of these decorative metal fence panels comes from the corrugated rib design.


The beauty of these panels comes from a unique coating process that simulates the look for different types of materials – including wood, rust and moss.

The fence above is designed to look like rust, but it’s not prone to rust.

In fact.

Our designer metal fence panels come with a 40-year manufacturer’s warranty!

These panels can be mounted inside our FenceTrac metal fence frame kits.
