Vinyl fence cheaper in the long run

US-BUILT vinyl post and rail fencing is being offered as a low maintenance alternative to the timber standard.

Surrey-based Europro has started importing the vinyl Triple Crown Fence range from the USA, where the design has been on sale for the past 12 years.

Although initially more expensive than wood, Europro says the vinyl design works out cheaper over a fences lifetime. The firm claims vinyl will not rot, blister, peel, break or change colour and it offers a lifetime guarantee on the fence – the lifetime of the buyer.

Pre-punched posts enable rails to be installed without tools, and the fence can also be electrified. A range of fence colours is available (01483-894260).
