Trex Fencing Components

Trex wood fencing comes in two styles — Seclusions (vertical pickets) and Horizons (horizontal pickets). Both options come in three colors — Saddle, Winchester Grey and Woodland Brown — and both have the same durable composite wood strength.

Whether you’re installing your own Trex privacy fence or you are using a professional fence installer, you can customize your fence’s design with Trex gates and Trex posts, as well as other components. You can choose the height of your fence as well as the width and the slope. The unique interlocking panel design allows you to snap your Trex fence panels into place with the assurance that they will stay put for many years, without gapping, warping or twisting the way you would expect wood to do.

You don’t have to worry about maintenance either — there’s no painting or staining required when you buy composite fencing. Your fencing resists rot and insect infestation, remaining beautiful for decades. That’s the beauty of using composite wood for fencing, whether for your home or your business.

Trex Gates & Trex Posts

Trex makes fencing look easy, but it takes engineering and ingenuity. The panels are the part of a fence that people notice most, but without Trex posts, there would be nothing to hold the panels in place. Trex posts are uncommonly strong — an important feature in fencing.

Additionally, the bottom rail of the Trex vertical Seclusion fence is reinforced with aluminum to provide extra durability. Trex gates are also reinforced with gate post stiffeners to ensure they hold up to many years of daily use.

FDS, the nation’s top Trex fencing distributor, has created  black galvanized steel posts for the Trex horizontal fence to provide the extra strength our customers have come to expect.

In fact, Trex fencing has been tested and stands up to sustained 100 mph winds and 116 mph gusts — strength you can’t get from wood or vinyl. This is made possible by the way Trex fence components work together.

Each Trex post is topped by a post cap, available in three styles. Trex post caps complete your composite fence’s look, but they aren’t just for show; they also perform an important function: sealing the top of the posts against the weather.

Trex Construction

What makes a Trex privacy fence so durable and easy to maintain is that it is made out of 50% wood particles and 50% plastic, giving it the impermeability of a synthetic fence and the strength of natural wood. That’s why it’s so much stronger than vinyl fencing, which cannot withstand high winds or even minimal impact. Trex fencing, invented in 2005 and increasing in popularity every year, comes with a 25-year warranty.
