As Trex composite fencing suppliers, FDS believes Trex fencing is the best! But if you opt for a different type of fencing, you can still use Trex posts to anchor your fence. Trex posts offer unparalleled durability, strength and beauty.

WHY TREX POSTS?

Your fence is only as strong as your posts. Trex privacy fence panels come in a single unit, but if you’re building your own wooden fence, you may install individual pickets instead. Regardless, it’s quick and easy to replace fence panels or pickets, but that’s not the case with posts.

To place fence posts, you must dig a deep hole and set your posts in concrete. You also must be careful to keep them exactly level as the concrete dries, or they won’t hold your fence up properly. This is arguably the hardest part of installing a fence.

Whenever you use wood fence posts, rot is a concern. Even treated wood fence posts eventually rot. It’s just the nature of wood out in the elements to break down, but not so with Trex posts. Trex posts are made of a composite fencing material consisting of wood particles, recycled plastics and a binding agent. It looks just like real wood, but it lasts many years longer.

Trex is also superior to wood when it comes to the opposite problem — posts that become brittle from spending thousands of hours out in the blazing sun. Additionally, Trex and its accompanying components never rust.

ATTRIBUTES OF A TREX FENCE POST

WORKING WITH TREX POSTS

Many homeowners choose Trex posts to support their wrought iron fences or fences made of other materials. Trex posts are often lighter, cheaper and easier to work with than fence posts made of other materials.

Trex Posts look great when combined with an ornamental steel or aluminum fence.

You can also get Trex post “sleeves,” which you can install over posts made of wood or other materials to improve the look of your posts and to help them stand up better to the weather.

If you have questions about whether Trex posts would be right for your fence, contact the area’s top composite fencing distributor — FDS.

Trex Fencing Posts with Ornamental Panels

Trex Fencing Posts are particularly popular as superior alternatives to metal posts.  Whether you are installing wrought iron, fabricated steel or aluminum fence panels, Trex posts are the perfect post to improve the performance and appeal of your fence.

Trex composite wood fence posts offer a rust-free alternative to metal. Although most ornamental fence systems use galvanized and coated steel or aluminum, all metal corrodes over time. A Trex post won’t rust and it is substantially thicker than both steel and aluminum. Trex is stronger and more durable all around.

Interchanging a Trex composite wood fence post with a metal post is easy. Trex posts are made of dense composite and most metal fencing manufacturers offer flat mount brackets to attach the ornamental fence to virtually any flat surface including the face of a Trex Fencing post. Because our posts are universal (i.e., the post can be used for lines, ends, corners, gates, etc.), the ornamental panel brackets attached simply using screws.
