Hurricane-proof fence. SLEEKFENCE™
Living in a hurricane zone can be scary and frustrating, and preparing your home for the storm season is crucial. One essential aspect of hurricane-proofing your property is installing a durable and reliable fence that can withstand high winds and heavy rains. That’s where SLEEKFENCE™ aluminum fence products come in – they are the perfect solution for homeowners in hurricane-prone areas. There is no such thing as a “hurricane-proof” fence. However, our product is resilient in the face of high winds and has a very high probability of staying upright through the most violent storms and hurricanes. Here are two reasons why SLEEKFENCE™ products are ideal for hurricane zones. We also answer a frequently asked question at the end of this post.

We have a link to our wind ratings in the learning hub on the SLEEKFENCE™ website. The project application chart specifies the recommended wind rating for each product. Please click here to look at the entire project application chart. With added reinforcements, as specified by engineering, our fencing can be rated to handle 160MPH windload and more. This makes SLEEKFENCE™ products ideal for hurricane zones and rooftop patios, where high winds are a significant concern.
SLEEKFENCE™ aluminum fence products are designed for easy and straightforward installation. The fence panels are preassembled, which means they can be easily installed without the need for special tools or skills. SLEEKFENCE™ is a modular fence system which means A modular fence, in short, is a fence that comes preassembled right out of the factory. It requires minor tweaks and adjustments during the installation process and works well with virtually any type of terrain. A modular fence often arrives as a kit or package; the pieces arrive ready to be installed. To further illustrate the value, think of a computer. A module, when we are talking about a computer, is a piece or section of software that can be changed out without affecting the entire program. Let’s apply that logic to SLEEKFENCE™. If there is a problem with a specific component or piece of your fence, it is relatively easy to swap that piece out for a fresh one without affecting the rest of the fence. If a part of your fence is damaged in a storm or a hurricane, it can be easily replaced.
Question: I want to consider my options; how would a Wood Fence or a Vinyl Fence do against a storm or a hurricane?
Wood fences are a popular choice for homeowners who want a natural and rustic look for their property. In a storm or hurricane, wood fences can be easily damaged by high winds, heavy rain, and flying debris. Wood may be prone to cracking, breaking, or splitting under pressure, leaving your fence looking unsightly and compromising its structural integrity. Another drawback of wood fences is that they require a lot of maintenance to keep them in good condition. Over time, the wood may rot, warp, or fade due to exposure to the elements. To prevent this, you’ll need to stain or paint your fence regularly, which can be time-consuming and expensive.
Vinyl fences are another popular option for homeowners who want a low-maintenance and affordable fencing solution. While vinyl fences may be resistant to rot, mildew, and insect damage, they are not as strong or durable as other materials. In a storm or hurricane, vinyl fences can be easily knocked over or damaged by high winds and debris, leaving your property vulnerable to further damage.
In conclusion, SLEEKFENCE™ aluminum fence products are an excellent choice for homeowners in hurricane zones. Our strong and durable materials, wind-resistant design, easy installation, stylish design, and eco-friendly materials make them the perfect solution for protecting your home during hurricane season. If you’re looking for a reliable and long-lasting fencing solution, consider SLEEKFENCE™ products.
