Fence Rails, Posts, Pickets & Stiffeners
Metal Fence Railing, Aluminum Fence Railing, Stainless Steel Fence Hardware and
Iron Fence Parts
Fence Parts and Metal Fence Railings have been manufactured at Johnson Bros. since the 1950`s along with accompaniments as well as fence partitions, folding gates and other gate products. One of the most requested Fence Components made are Fence Rails. Johnson Bros. makes U-Channels, C-Channels, Open Seam Tubing and other Special Shaped Profiles to be used as Fence Railings. Fence Rail materials are: Strong Galvanized Steel protection, Stainless Steel, and Aluminum for outdoor fences. Other rare materials used are Bronze, Brass and Copper with thick secondary coatings if a non-weathered finish is required. Fence Railing, being our most often produced Fence Hardware, is manufactured with inline holes, slots, end slots, miters, cutouts and more.
For fences that require extra security, Aluminum Fence Railing may not be the best choice. Both Steel and Stainless Steel would be a better, more secure choice. With those Iron Fence Parts, secondary finishing is required, such as hot dip galvanizing and paint or both. There are varying degrees of rust resistance for both galvanizing and paint finish protection. Galvanizing can be put on to steel before forming a Metal Fence Railing where paint can only be done after forming. The better the corrosion resistance, the more materials costs are required. However, with Stainless Steel Fence Hardware, typically the only extra finishing that may be needed is for polishing, though painting can still be done on stainless. There are two most common lower priced stainless alloys for fence parts. Type 304 will hold up well, while type 430 stainless will have less resistance ability in a salty environment over time. There are even grades of stainless made for saltwater submersion, if necessary, but those are rare and higher priced. Type 321 and Type 316 are the expensive stainless alloys for those applications. For normal applications, type 304 alloy stainless works best. Aluminum may have an extra protection from corrosion of a secondary finished anodized or painted finish, but is not recommended for high strength functioning fences. With Stainless Steel Fence Hardware used, the function of the fence can be much stronger. With aluminum Fencing Rails, galvanized steel cannot be touching aluminum or a reaction occurs quickly dissolving the aluminum and turning it white that will cause it to fail. Great care must be taken when using aluminum Fencing Rail, especially for motel, hotel, apartment, condos and many other 2nd floor areas and above.
Johnson Bros. manufactures portable indoor room wire partition Fencing Railings and other Fencing Parts for indoor use as well. Be sure to also contact us about any Fence Part like a post, picket, or a stiffener as well as other formed Fence Parts.
