How wide is a section?

Applicable Products:
All Styles of ornamental aluminum fence.

Every style can be different. We use many different manufacturers and widths can vary between styles even among the same manufacturer. Although generally section widths are 6' wide.

The actual width of a section is usually expressed as the installed width, center to center on the posts. In cases where you are mounting to a wall or column, the installed section width for that section will be less than the rest, because the end rails are slightly longer to slide inside a post. This excess normally is cut off to make the picket widths the same throughout.
