Before you begin the fence installation guide:
Area need to be properly staked to fence location by the homeowner or the salesperson. Never at any point assume where the fence need to be installed. Check to ensure underground utilities, the pool lines and the sprinkler systems are well located.
You need to check all the items on the packing list which include panels, gates, posts, caps, latches, hinges, screws and paint. If there is any part which is missing, you need to contact the Aluminum Fence Supply distributer.
Identify and then separate the four styles of the posts: the Line posts have the holes routed on the opposite sides, the Corner posts have the holes routed on the adjacent sides, and the End posts have the holes routed to one side. The gate posts are being routed like the end posts but wall thickness is virtually double so as to support the weight and the use of a gate.
Information about the fence installation guide:
Fence need be installed about 2 to 3 off a ground to give gates to work well and also to allow for maintenance of the grass under a fence. Gates are being built to fit the openings, if the packing list says the 4’ gate, it’s a gate for the 4’ opening. While setting the gate posts, it’s very important to have the opening which is exact and the gate posts need be topped out the bubble level so as for channels to line up with the channels to the panels.
After the opening is been set well it is very good to lay the post at the top of both the gate posts and then set the level in the top to make sure the posts are well topped out. While digging the holes to install the Aluminum Fence Supply Fence, the holes need to be 6” to 8” in the diameter and as a minimum of 24” deep. In the areas where the freezing is the factor, the fence posts should be below a frost line. It’s also good practice in belling out the bottom of a hole to avoid posts from heaving. The full panels need to be used always; nevertheless, if the shorter panel is being required, the panel can be custom cut at any size so as to accommodate a line. Using the Saw-Z-All or the notching tool to makes the cuts, notch an end of a channel to fit in the post.
