What is the wall thickness of a vinyl fence?
Wall thickness on a vinyl fence refers to the thickness of the PVC. To accurately compare vinyl fence products, the wall thickness of the fence and the posts must be determined. So essentially, when comparing vinyl fence, the thicker the better. Most fence posts at your local home improvement store will be anywhere from .100 – 1.30 in thickness. To reduce costs, many manufacturers will fabricate thinner panels and posts resulting in reduced strength and ultimately yielding an inferior vinyl fence. A durable fence, one that will withstand the test of time, needs to be at least .140 thick or higher.
