There are fences and then there are fences, each with a solution to a specific need. Some fences provide security and protection while others can lend a touch of class to any event.

Take Fast Fence’s new white steel picket fence; It’s so cute you may be tempted to take it home and install it around your yard but make no mistake, this is a professional quality, hard-working temporary fence system which is equally comfortable dressing up an outdoor wedding or defining space at a trade show.

Made of powder-coated steel it’s always clean and ready for installation at your next event.

Assembly is a breeze. The eight foot wide sections are 44 inches high at the post and just 1.25 inches thick, making them light enough for almost anyone to lift them into place. The first section post mounts into a ground stand pin and there’s a duplicate pin on the same plate for the next section. Each post is then snuggly secured with a white cable tie. Tear down is just as quick and their narrow profile means they can be quickly moved and stacked or loaded into a truck, clearing the way to allow any other equipment and staging to be packed up.

“Within the first week of getting them in, they were fully booked up for upcoming events,” says Allyson Newburg, Marketing Manager at Fast Fence Inc. “Our clients want them for large outdoor shows. Even other event rental companies who don’t carry their own fencing are booking them for their own clients because they look so sophisticated.”

While there are other companies with similar looking vinyl fencing, the old-style product generally isn’t as durable and maintenance free as the powder-coated steel, says Newburg. Vinyl is prone to picking up dirt from the air and harder to clean but the steel picket fence washes off with a hose or power washer and stays bright and shiny. With the steel, it’s also quicker and easier to fix any chips or scratches so they’ll never look dull, dirty or damaged when they arrive at an event.

The white pickets were just the job for Nicky Hanson of Without a Hitch Event Planners who needed secure a 40 foot by 40 foot area for client Fisher-Price’s 2010 Playtime Tour, a travelling road show to 25 Ontario locations where kids and parents can play with the toy maker’s line up. “They’re very solid which is good,” says Hanson. “And they’re easy to put up and take down and store.” With kids around it’s important to have a fence solution which is both secure enough to contain the children and prevent any outsiders from walking into the space but also stable so there are no fears it will fall over and cause injuries. “We’re really moving these fences round, sometimes twice a day,” she says. “They even gave us some touch up paint to fix up any scratches so they always look great.”

“A few rental companies in Southern Ontario carry vinyl and wooden picket panels,” says Newburg. “But not in large quantities and not in the same clean and new condition as these powder-coated steel fences. Fence is our business and we have about 2000 linear feet of this new steel picket fencing with 1000’s of feet more available at short notice.”

Fast Fence Inc. can supply almost any of its products for sale or rental, including the new steel pickets. “We can build them in custom sizes and powder coat them to match virtually any colour,” says Newburg.

The white picket fences and indeed, any product, can be picked up at Fast Fence’s yard on Melford Drive near Markham Road and Steeles Avenue, or they can be delivered to the customer’s location and installed by a team of skilled professionals.

Since 1995 Fast Fence Inc. has been supplying fencing solutions to customers across Southern Ontario. We have over 150,000 linear feet of fencing in dozens of styles ready to serve you. For more information or for a fast quote visit http://www.fastfence.ca or call 416-751-7877 or 1-800-824-0413.
