What should the spacing be when I'm installing the fence between columns?

Applicable Products:
All styles of ornamental aluminum fence.

Reply: For Jerith Fences:
The maximum distance between columns is the standard post spacing multiplied by the number of sections between the columns minus the width of one post. For example, if you want to space your columns so that three residential sections fit between them, take 3 times the post spacing of 72-1/2" minus one 2" post:
(3 x 72.5") - 2" = 215.5" or 17' 11-1/2" between columns
For Industrial fence this opening would need to be:
(3 x 71.5") - 2.5" = 212" or 17'-8"
