Why Choose a Metal Privacy Fence?
Metal has been increasing in popularity as a privacy fence option in recent years.

…while some homeowners are also choosing metal in lieu of wood, vinyl or composite.
Here are a few reasons why you might select metal for your privacy fence:
- Metal creates a stronger barrier than wood or vinyl
- Most metal fence panels offer complete privacy with no gaps
- A metal fence can create a stronger deterrent to trespassers
- Metal may last longer than wood or vinyl depending on your local climate
- Metal looks better and more professional in certain property environments
- Metal can be customized with paint or other unique design options

When it comes down to it.
The fence you choose will depend on the look you desire, the function you need and the budget you have to invest in the project.
Metal Privacy Fence System
The key to building a metal privacy fence without welding…
…is the framework on which the fence is built.
You need a fence frame that can securely hold metal panels or metal slats in place.
Perimtec offers the patented FenceTrac fence system to do just that.
FenceTrac provides a strong U-channel fence panel frame that can hold varying types of corrugated or flat metal infill materials.
So you can create the exact look you want for your fence.
Combined with metal fence posts, FenceTrac provides the structure you need to build a metal fence without welding.
In fact, each FenceTrac panel uses just four bolts for assembly and easily attaches to posts with self-tapping screws.
Let’s look at a few design options.
