Step 1: Determine Install Method

1.

Step Method:

This method gradually “steps”

up the slope and the rails remain level. This may leave gaps under the fence.

The downhill post will need to be set taller. Longer posts may be required.

When laying out the fence

post spacing, measure on a level line from one post to another.

2.

Following the Grade:

This method follows the grade or slope with the rails parallel to the ground. The post spacing may need to be reduced to avoid rails being too short because of the angle.

3. The fence can

Post spacing will need to be reduced. Pickets will need to be cut to height.

*Note: If se�ng posts to height begin by se�ng all end, corner and transi�on (post w ere grade changes) posts first. Posts should be 74 1/2” inches high**. String a line from the top of these posts

set the remainder of the posts to the height of the string. (see ig. 4)

Step 4: Set Posts

1. Plumb and level each post to the string line using a post level or 4’ level* Make sure that the posts are next to but not pushing the string line. Fill the hole with concrete and brace if necessary un�l concrete is cured. low concrete to dry 24-48 hours (depending on temperature) before building .

1. Dig holes for the posts making sure not to disturb the

stakes for the string. The string may be removed and replaced a�er holes are dug. The holes should be approximately 12”

diameter and 30” deep (depending on local codes). Holes should be dug so that they allow equal

amounts of concrete on all sides of posts ( ee ig. 2)

down from the top of the post. A�ach a bracket 73 5/8” ** down from the top of the post (see ig. ) If the fence is on a slope, the brackets on the downhill side will need to be low-

ered so that the rails flow smoothly. Fig.

Mark the aluminum bo�om rail, bo�om rail covers, and top for length by holding them next to the post.* (see ig. )

Cut the aluminum bo�om rail with a nonferrous metal cu�ng blade.

Cut the aluminum 1/2” shorter (do not cut the bo�om rail covers shorter) to avoid scratching the post during installa�on. If the dis- tance between posts is 91” the aluminum rail will not need to be cut.

Cut top rail and bo�om rail covers with miter saw

Slide the bo�om rail covers over the aluminum bo�om rail as shown (see Fig. 8). Place the assembled bo�om rail over the bo�om brackets with the deeper channel facing down.

Set the top rail in place over the brackets. Leave the rail in place while marking and cu�ng the remaining rails, to ensure all rails fit properly.

Step 8: Install Pickets

Cut two pickets to a�ach to the posts at each end. The picket sits inside the aluminum rail and should be cut to fit just below the top bracket (see Fig. 9).

Insert the first picket into the aluminum rail, and secure it to the post using three 1 5/8” exterior screws (see Fig. 10). If the posts are set at 8’ on center, the first and last picket will face the same direc�on.

For shorter sec�ons, the first and last pickets may face in opposite direc�ons.

Insert pickets into the bo�om rail, alterna�ng their orienta�on so they interlock (see Fig. 11). Due to color varia�ons that may be present, we recommend installing similar color pickets within the same sec�on of fence.

If the last picket is �ght t may be easier to remove the second to last picket and reinsert it by sliding it down from above a�er the last picket is screwed to the post (see ig. 1 )
