We understand that architects and contractors work to fulfill industry best practices while complying with the warranty demands that accompany each individual product. Fence contractors, installers and wholesalers can easily find a diverse selection of fence gate hardware and accessories through our website or catalog.
However, choosing the right accessory is often the easy part. The installation process can be overwhelming, stressful, and a total pain. That’s why our expert team is sharing three rules to help our clients install fencing and gate hardware painlessly.
Do Your Research
Before you place an order for the accessories your project needs, make sure you have done your research. Look up local codes. Does the hardware need to be ADA compliant? Must the accessory be child resistant or have the ability to be padlocked? There is nothing worse than installing an accessory and having to uninstall it because it didn’t meet local codes and compliances.
Remember that some jobs will require additional documentation on the product’s origin, such as “locally made,” or another description. Make sure to know what your project requires before purchasing hardware.
Use the Installation Guide
Installation guides are the most important part of the installation process since every piece of hardware is unique. These guides help educate the installer on the specific way that each fence gate hardware or accessory needs to be installed. This ensures safety, security, and satisfaction for all parties involved.
Keep in mind that ADA compliant or child resistant hardware is only compliant when installed properly. By offering installation guides for many of our products, we help ensure that all fence gate hardware and accessories are installed in compliance with specifications.
All of our products include a warranty because the safety and security of our clients and their consumers is our highest priority.
Utilize our installation guides to help your installation go smoothly and painlessly.
