**Can be used in 2 1/4" and 2 3/8" mesh/diamond, but there will be less privacy.

Specifications

Materials: Extruded from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), color pigments and ultra violet (UV) inhibitors, specifically designed to retard the harmful effects of the sun and lengthen the life of the product.

Additional Material Notes:

  • Winged Slat and Ultimate Slat includes Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA), a softer plastic to keep the wings flexible and resilient.
  • HedgeLink is made with 16-gauge, galvanized, braided wire and needles are made with 3-mil (PVC).


HDPE TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

Melt Index: (.6) A low melt index indicates improved stress and crack resistance

Density: (.957) Polyethylene ranges anywhere from .914 to .960 in density. A higher density yields maximum stiffness without becoming overly brittle.

Minimum Temp: (-76 F) Polyethylene stays flexible even at this temperature extreme.

Maximum Temp: (250 F) Polyethylene does not distort until reaching this temperature.

Tensile Strength: (4,000 psi) Material will not suffer distortion at lesser loads or impacts.

Durability: HDPE fence products are resistant to: severe weather conditions, salt water, sand, road dirt, most acids, alcohol, alkaline, ammonia, petroleum distillates, and common environmental pollutants.

Maintenance: Pressure cleaning of surface contaminants is quickly accomplished with plain water.
